Default The new EVGA 8800GTS...are...are...Hideous

Seriously what were they thinking? Gross Side-Decals
but seriously card doesn't look too bad considering The GT's cost you $300 anyway and this one comes with Crysis
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N841-A3 GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

I still may just wait til the 9 series is released
anyone care to post some Benchmarks?

I hope these overclock good. I just bought the EVGA version @ 675mhz core clock, hope to get it past 720mhz or even 730mhz (doubt it though)

Finally, i get my video card!

I actually like the look, I just don't like the price jump from the 8800GT for a smaller performance jump. But it's definitely looking like a decent card for the money.

There doesn't seem to be that significant of a difference between the 8800GTX and this though... :\
