save some money and get the GT check the charts on www.tomshardware.com , or wait a month and get the new 9800gx2 thats rumored to be around $460


Quote "Since our last article, the most notable card to be released was the Geforce 8800 GTS 512MB. Based on the new G92 GPU in the 8800 GT, but with 128 stream processors enabled, the new GTS is a match for the older 8800 GTX. However, with street prices in the $350 range, it's a tough sell over the 8800 GT 512MB, which offers very similar performance for less."

Ok i have looked around tomshardwaware.com and i found that a 8800GT OCed is just about the same performance as the 8800GTX.

And the GT is $40 cheaper than the GTS and the GTS looks like crap compared to it. Have a look http://www23.tomshardware.com/graphi...=854&chart=318

That's the old GTS. The GTS you posted is the new one and beats the GT

Sorry, it's a great rig, but...it's too overpriced. Look that the GPU for example...tell me if it's not cheap:

Instead of 429, you have it at 344...and so does it apply for the rest. Don't order from them.
