    hmm it is/was rumoured that there would be a 1gig 8800gt, maybe it will
    be the memory configuration of this new 8800gts instead....

    Just had a computer spend-up and got an 8800 GTX 768 MB along with other
    goodies (I'm at an age where the saying 'you can't take it' with you has
    meaning!) - this is an impressive card. Had the choice of an MSI factory
    overclocked sucker with a one year warranty or an Asus standard one with a
    three year warranty - I went the conservative way (had to wait 2 weeks
    though). A previous poster mentioned there are not many of the 8800 GTs
    around and what is happening at the moment (according to my supplier) is a
    shipment comes in (probably a small shipment) and they are disappearing out
    the door very quickly. Same thing with the bigger Viewsonic monitors.
    Cheers all

    LOL. My parents are off in Tasmania for a couple weeks at the moment, on
    what my sister calls a SKI holiday. Spending Kids Inheritance.
    I put a Gigabyte 8800GTX/768MB GDDR3 in a machine for a mate a couple weeks
    ago. Nearly $800, acts like a fan heater (double slot, blows out the back)
    but he tells me it's impressive.

    i acutally managed to get a 8800GT from QMB Computers in Onehunga for
    about 470 incl gst. Came with Company of Heroes too (released last
    year), which is apparently a brilliant game.

    Very happy with the performance.

    Fair enough though. My olds are loaded, have a 900k house all paid off
    among other things. I told them to blow it all. I can earn my own cash.

    Oh I agree. It's just my sister's sense of humour, gives the parents a

    I'd go std especially as the overclocked ones seem little advanced on a
    std one with a wee bit of overclocking anyway.
    yeah, When I upgraded my cpu from a p4-2200Mhz to a AMD dual 6000+ I was
    gob smacked about how much better BF2141 looked...the 7600GT really
    flew....way way more impressive....a 8800gt or gtx will be a big
    improvement again....
