Well, I'm not quite satisfied with my 512MB 8800GTS, even though it is the 3rd best card on the market, but oh well.. I need more power!
I've considered getting a second one, but that's an extra $300-350 to be plunked down. Plus, the resell value of an 8800GTS is really iffy, because many people in the mainstream market will get confused by the 640MB version and think my card is inferior (very frustrating). So I'm hoping that I can sell this card out there for at least $300 somehow, which by mainstream retail standards, is a pretty good price, a GTS at my local store is $400!
Now, assuming that the 9800GX2 will perform at least equal to or greater than a pair of 512 8800GTS, it will be a good deal if
the speculated price of $449 becomes a reality (rather than paying $600/$700 for two 8800GTS)
Here's the interesting part. The resell value of this card will be tremendous, by the time the 9800GTX comes out (which hopefully they would've designed a new core for), the average person probably wouldn't even be aware of the 9 series yet, and here I come with a GX2 version! "Woah" they'll say, and I'm sure I'll make a pretty penny off of that if not at least break even.
What do you guys think of this.... "plan"?
