Thumbs up MSI 8800gts for $119 on Newegg. Yikes!

Newegg.com - MSI NX8800GTS 320M OC GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

If you are on a budget and haven't gone to the 8800 series....here is your chance for dirt cheap!

meh, thats a 320mb version, thats no better then an 8600 IMO, you can get a 9600tg for around the same price if you look good, (i just picked up a 9600gt 512 for 129.99.

Comparing a 8800GTS 320mb to a 8600? Dude no way. The 8800GTS 320mb is still a very good card...

but I agree, the 9600GT is a better buy.

i didn't mean performance wise, i ment the 8600gt is a crappy cared compared to others and the 8800gts 320 is also a crappy card compared to others. Obviously i would take a 8800gts 320 over an 8600gt anyday.

Ya, and this one doesn't have some gay fan on it... it has the normal design right?

around the same but the 8800gs has less shaders, but higher clock speeds and such, so get the GS
