Default Guy buys $4200 worth of graphic cards, to show off....



This guy is seriously loaded. He just spends $5000 AUS (about $4200 US), on two 8800GTXs and two Ultras XXX edition, to compare them side by side. If I'm not mistaken, he has another system with two 8800GTXs.

Heres another video, of him comparing performances of the 8800GTX and Ultra in SLI:


Why couldn't khan do this? Oh that's right...

What a waste....huh?

But at least we get to see what the performance looks like, without burning a hole in the wallet.

lol...Somebody should of told him, that the Ultras will be cut to $599, and the GTX will be cut to. But it doesn't matter, because it's nothing to him.

Yes, I believe the 8 series are getting a cut. Especially the GTXs and Ultras. Heres the thread about it:
GeForce 8000 Series Price Cut May Come Soon
