New Toy!!!!
I went and picked me up an 8800gt today. My friend works at frys and I was able to use his employee discount to get $50 off the retail on the 512mb XFX 8800gt Alpha Dog Edition, so after tax I paid $271

Anywho, after some minimal testing, (Im driving back to school in San Luis Obispo Tomorrow Morning and thus, the rig had to be packed...) I pulled down 12557 in 3dmark06 with my e6600 @ 3.3ghz

Also pulled 175k in Aquamark 3.

And Now, The Obligatory Pictures...
