lol, sorry, should've of known

but, the 8800GT and the soon-to-be-released 8800GTS V2 are G92-cores last I heard, not G80's

Which is kinda weird really, that Nvidia would do that, but I'm guessing their commercial success has left them with little chip overstock to release clocked-down/neutered versions of their card, although, they did do that initially rather than later on (as ATI did) with the 320GTS, 640GTS, GTX and of course ULTRA on top.
