May not be a 8800GT but it sure does look slick. esp. the XFX & Evga one.

Nice to see Nvidia's finally rolling out the 9000 series, even though it's not revolutionary.

Im pretty mad at nvidia right now....why did they release an 8800gs, if theres a 9600gt for almost the same price? Theyre virtually identical in performace too, the 9600gt just having a bigger heatsink.

That card is suppose to replace the midrange 8600GT, if i were you I wouldn't think even for a moment changing the card you already own for that one.

Quote:
The new product can replace its predecessor, the 8600 GT, running in a PCI Express slot in a PC. "The first product to be introduced in the GeForce 9 family gives gamers the horsepower to play cutting-edge DirectX 10 games at a price they will love and can afford," Ujesh Desai, general manager of GeForce desktop GPUs at Nvidia, said in a statement. DirectX 10, which is only in Windows Vista, is the latest graphics technology from Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT).

The latest graphics card has a better performance-per-watt ratio than its predecessor, Nvidia said. Contributing to the performance boost is 64 stream processors versus 32 for the older model. In addition, the new card has a 256-bit memory interface running at 900 MHz.

NCIX was offering eVGA 8800GTX's with dangerden waterblocks on them for a while. Came with a 2 year warranty so you didn't have to void it yourself. They might do the same this time around with the 9800.

This is a good step up though....the 600 series cards have always been the "bang for your buck" with the exception of the 8600gt. Remember the 6600gt...7600gt...this time around it became the 8800gt, but now its back to a 600 series card. There was really no need for an 8800gs.
