Default Re: 8800gts ~ $80

Well I'm in no rush to get a card. I'm going to pass on this one actually. Mainly because I thought I'd have a good 2 weeks for some gaming over this break, but I'll be busy. So I can hold out a little. Thanks for the info guys.

if you really want to see a huge jump in performance, Sapphire has a 4870 for roughly $190 shipped ($170 AR, but I wouldn't count on it coming anytime soon, mine still isn't here and it's been almost 5 months)...

here

it got 5 eggs on all the customer reviews except one, and it got 4 eggs on that one...

i dont think Joga is much of a gamer to see the performance.
unless he is...
and wouldnt his CPU bottleneck the 4870?
