just checked newegg and this card is $10 more than the older version with less SP's????
so when does the price drop on the older gen 8800's
same product number as the hardwarecanuks site ,but the egg is labling them still with 96SP's????????
strange probably a typo.
just go with an 8800GT or wait for the new 8800GTS with the G92 which is rumored to have as high as 196 SP at 2.4GHz (probably not, but some sites are speculating) probably 128 at 1.8GHz or so if they even are making it.
if the extra SP don't draw significant voltage you can push that card to 600MHz core/2GHz mem/1.6GHz SP comfortably. which would increase the FPS in that Crysis benchmark by at least 5FPS.
What happened to the days when there was 2 top range cards... 1 from ati and 1 from nvidia.. Now you have a massive choice.
I for one wouldn't be buying a 8800gts atm. Not with the GT out and what not.
I have noticed a big price drop in the 8800gts 320mb model only, in Aussie in the last few days. I actually saw one for under $300!!!! that is crazy for over here.
