Default MSI Vs. EVGA

I'm looking into getting the 8800GT, but after seeing 853&dgc=CJ&cid=24471&lid=566643 that, I was wondering if it was really worth getting the EVGA, rather than the MSI. I am on a rather tight budget.

I doubt there is that much difference between the two. MSI offers a 3 year warranty (I think) for their video cards, and that should be good enough for most people.

It was at $209 yesterday. As soon as I went back to order one the price went back up

But $259 is still the cheapest i've seen.

Anyone know why Newegg doesn't list this card? I have a 8800GTS from EVGA which has been a great card. How does the GT compare to the GTS?

the 8800gt is based on the g92 core, which runs cooler and consumers less power... for less price... and performs better..

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0
