Default Video Card.

Hi, im in Aus and so none of the local shops have the new 8800GT yet, so should i go for an Asus 320Mb 8800GTS in SLI or 1 Gigabyte 768mb 8800GTX?

Thanx for ya help.

HMM I think your best bet is to just wait a little bit for the gt's to come in. because if you SLi 2 gts's then you have no more room, and I think GTX is your best bet, if your really too impatient.

****! That's a hugely overprice product. You should talk to the vendor about how you can get it online for $289 if it's the 8800GT Superclocked, it jumps $20 for the KO and another $20 for the SSC respectively. And that's just the eVGA pricing. Other brands price similar if not lower if I remember correctly.
