    Ira, even Wikipedia doesn't show any signs of that type of 8800gs.. They do have a 768 8800gtx... I'm with You Erocker, there isn't one...

    Most likely the 768 version doesn't fit in, or overlaps the performance of a higher priced card, and they are holding back on it for now.

    I believe whats going to happen is what Jimmy 2004 posted today. They knew they messed up with certain things on the GS version, so they are doing it with the 9600... They might be coming out with a 8800gs 768, but it would be pointless at this time and date. 9 series is here and wanting to flood the market.

    Afaik, Palit / Xpertvision has the only 768MB 8800GS available out there.
    In europe it's in stock at several etailers.

    sorry for the double post. IRA, we have Palit_Guy at TPU. PM him or throw it in the Newegg thread and see what he says.. It might take some time for him to find out everything, but I know he can!

    +1 ;)

    We can find 768 ones in France for exemple. We can find 8800 GS768 bios too in TPU database.
    I saw that when i took another GS bios to work on it with NiBitor ( the Asus one ).
    768 version is rare. With 9X00 series, public promotion of this card may not be judicious :shadedshu

    8800 GS 768 MB does exist. In fact they did sell online, though the search turns up empty now. Most probably, they've recalled them to rebadge to 9600 GSO. (96 SP, 192 bit mem bus, 384 / 576 / 768 MB mem). You could see a 9600 GSO 768M.

    The new of the 8800GS renamed in 9600GSO.
    768 versions will be most probaly the most popular in case of afordable price.

    I don't think it's worth it looking at some of the other cards you can get for the price.

    At the prices that I'm seeing, for you IRA, it would be better to go with a 9 series card. It's hard enough where you live to get a good price on things, and I believe its the better choice. You can future proof yourself and still get some good money on the card once you sell it. The islands are great man!

    for that price range teh 9600GT is best. its basically an 8800GT 512MB with the option for tri SLI, only cheaper. Theres a whole $30 difference between that and a 384MB GS here, so i'd really suggest the 9600 - as it definately matches the GTS640 in most games yet its a lot cheaper.

    The 112SP 8800GTS 640MB is a pretty sweet deal at $200 after $30 rebate IMO.I would chose that card over 8800GTS 512MB for 16x10 or higher res.
