well, i saw how it was only $12 more, itll just be like buying it when it was originally $149.99., and plus, i get it faster, it takes about 3 days faster.
anyways, since this was ignored, im going to post it again.

out of these two 8800GT, which one will you guys choose?

they are both made by evga, same specs, same price, but one has a dual slot fan, while the other won an award, and was sold most.

The second one seems like it might run a bit cooler because of the dual slot. I would go with that one.

If you have the space for the dual slot, get that.

The one with the dual slot will run cooler. Free shipping is nearly as good as the $10 off. The difference is only $1.03.

I think, when it comes to the companies supplying the cards, there isn't really any difference between them. The only real difference is that for example EVGA have a step up program in the US.
If another make was cheaper though, I wouldn't go spending like 50 more on a supposed better supplier, when they'll function exactly the same.

Default Re: kinda got lucky?

what about $30 more?'
btw, now i am back using my old X700.
it used to make this burnt smell before, but now it doesnt.
for those that wonder why i am not using my X1950, is because i am selling it to my friend tonight for $50, so if i buy the leadtek, it would be like $70 for an 8800GT
but still need opinions if i should get the leadtek or the evga
found out that the leadtek is only 256mb GDDR3, while the evga is 521 mb GDDR3

Leadtek makes a very good video card. I've had many of their video cards and each one ran great.

Yea, you don't want the 256MB cards as they use the older G84 GPU.
