Default Re: Awesome 8800GT deal!

8800GTs are pretty loud.
I went and got one because they said they can get close to an 5770 (and maybe beat it at some games?). For $45, it ain't bad when comparing to the $150 last time I checked) 5770. Only downside is not DX11, but there is like what, 1 game that uses DX11 right now?

Actually, I have lost count. Over ten.

They will only scale 30% or so.

I run an 8800GT. I haven't found a game yet that it can't handle. Plays games like Bioshock, FarCry2, Fallout 3 and Crysis just fine and dandy. They really aren't that loud either.

They're loud for me, it's the loudest thing in my setup. Then again, it runs at 80%-90% when I game because of my Rivatuner fan control.
