seems like a pretty good card to buy if u havent all ready got a ultra/gtx or gt or even a gts. but its not worth selling one of those for it.

meh... not that big of an improvement at all. Looks less than 10% faster.

Yeah this really surprises me because of the extra shader units. I think I'm going to hold out till the 9 series.

I'm content with my $229 8800GT for the time being. Still got 60 days to step-up with EVGA if anything interesting happens in the next couple months.

Yeah, I don't think 8800GT owners need bother. Us stupid suckers who got a GTS 320 a month before the 8800GT came out however....

Thank god for EVGA

I almost got the 320 a few weeks ago, there is no way to tell with computer parts.

What does EVGA offer? Can you trade it in or upgrade the card?

They have a step-up program which allows you to trade in your EVGA card and get a better card and pay the remainder.

The 11th probably. I'll probaly get this considering the extra performance at 1920 x 1200.
