THATS why they limit 2 on newegg! So you cannot get trisli!
supply and demand, the great founding premise of capitalism
sidenote: tyler zambozi is back!
I'm so damn greedy I have to wait until my new gt comes in and am using my old x800 pro for now.
NCIXUS only has the galaxy version in stock, and its OEM.
PNY 8800 gt 169.99 in stock here http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?edc=1327828
Thats pretty good deal...
It's 266.99 now... and it says 'call for availability' ie they might tell you it's not in stock...
for reasons only speculated upon they did not release enough of the cards to meet even a low demand.. 40,000 wordwide i gather.. ati are said to have released 250.000 3800 cards with a promise of another 140.000 before year end..
course it looks good at first.. these cards are so good they have all sold out.. there is somthing fishy going on.. either they dont have enough working samples or dont want to torpedo sales of their flagship card with folks buying two 8800gt cards and still having change left..
could be a bit of both.. a fake launch of cards they cant or wont supply also took attention away from the new ati cards launch..
we do not see even close to those numbers in the distribution chhannels now though,
Any idea when the hd 3800's are getting released in theUS?
got my 2 on the way !!!!
here is bunch more but the price increase is crazy http://www.ncixus.com/search/?categoryid=0&q=8800 gt
Hmm...my preordered 8800GT haven't arrived,I ordered it on Sunday.
It was preliminary 12th,then it was changed to 14th,then 23rd and back to 16th.
I hope I get it so I can finally use my Q6600 system!
For the moment I'm stuck with my AMD64,in safemode because I'm using the same harddrive that was used in Q6600 computer.
And my friend will buy this AMD64 rig for about 220€.
Thanks, ORDERED mine beforethey went away..
the mem speedsays 2000, is stock core 600? No info from the Galaxy site at all! thanks again!
Yippee.. now I have a gt to go with my new water settup being shipped so the whole thing can go in together! more or less after testing !!!
clubit now has them http://www.clubit.com/product_brows...press x16 GeForce Series&scat2=GeForce 8800GT
I saw the 2000 mem speed evga for 329 at NE, still waiting, I feel that the 282.00 shipped price for the geforce8800gt at 2000 memspeed is a good price that is the one I purchased, BUT I wish I could verify the core speed, I oc all the time, but never a card.. how hard is it?
hangs his head, shameless hijak, or not
Oh great "T" what program u use to reach those nice figures? Surprised you only hit 2066 as I readth e mem chips are rated for 2000?
I'm not sold mine made 65.00 got greedy
how hard and what program u use to oc the card?
very easy and the new riva tuner
i've got 3 8800gt superclocked cards and spent $937 to get them. all 3 can run 740mhz core, 2000mhz mem. very nice!!! i haven't had any problem cooling them either, although im gonna get 3 zalman vf900's to keep them cooler.
now newegg has them http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...&N=2010380048 1069633099&name=PCI Express 2.0
When do you guys think that the shortage will be lifted? I'm in a major trouble right now, my Crysis copy is in the way, I sold off my 8800GTX so that I could take 2 8800GTs, SLI them and overclock the hell out of them and I couldn't find one -not one- GT neither on the shelves nor on the Internet. I'm posting now from a friend's PC and I think I'm already crying for trying to be ready all this time for Crysis and now that is out, I can't play it
Are you in the US? If so, the best I can recommend is obsessively update newegg and clubit the best you can. lol. They seem to get a couple at a time, but they always sell within minutes.
Unfortunately no, Ι can only hope for nVidia's good will (that's why I want to know when the shortage will be over)....
Steve, what resolution are you going to run Crysis at?
Have you any interest in future SLI or Tri-SLI?
You have an SLI capable board I am assuming. Why didn't you just buy another GTX....
clubit has them now
