Default Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX ???

I was looking on newegg.com for the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX so I could do one of the comparisons with the ATI HD 4870, but I can not for the life of me find it on the website... Do they make that card anymore?

Since I've already started this thread, can anyone tell me which card they think performs better in gaming? I like my Nvidia but I would like to try out a new card on a new build. Ive read nothing but good things about the ATI HD 4870, great benchmarks, great FPS in games like Crysis, and Unreal 3, the only thing I've read that wasn't good is how much heat it generates and some even said the fan is loud which wouldn't bother me much. If someone could jsut give me a quick run down on thier performance with video games I'd appreciate it. I play alot of MMO's including AoC, LotRO, WoW, EQ2, Quake 3, I wouldn't say I'm a harcore gamer but I do enjoy it and would enjoy it even more if I had a system that didn't BSOD all the freaking time...

Here's a good review: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3341

As you can see, it thrashes the GTX in every benchmark.

And the reason it is no longer being sold is because it went EOL a few months ago.
