And it produce less heat than 8800GT 512MB. And noise level of this video card is similar to HD3870

Well, it cost a lot more that the GT so it had better be faster.

I'll probably consider this card seeing as how the GT can get up to 90*C unless you increased fan speed.

Seeing as how you can't find a GT in stock for less than 300 right now. I'd say 300-350 for this card is a pretty good deal

Well you could wait for 8800 gt prices to drop when 9 series comes out.

1K improvement is not very big is it?

if nvidia had better SLi and more motherboards to choose from.. they really would clean up. At the moment ATi still has a foot in the door with plenty of motherboard variations, cheap price and better scalability with crossfire.

Ive changed my mind from getting sli to crossfire countless times already. Crossfire X is tempting me thou (3870 X2).

Need some news about this mysterious 9series

I just did it so i will tell you what happens

You enter all your product info for the card you have now and then select the one you want to get, just fill out a few things, then you get put on a waiting list for a while and they give you a number. You can check your number any time you want to see what place you are in line for your step up.

Then when it comes time to step up, they send u a few emails and tell you how to correctly send your card out and that when they get it and approve it they send you your card out in 1-3 buisness days.

If you mess up in any way and send your card out, it will be returned to you (i.e. forgetting to put an adapter or something in the orignal box)

Pretty sweet program, i waited about a week and a half though on the waitng list
