    Well, really, what can I say? Grab 'em while they're hot!

    For those of you who need a proper introduction to the 8800GT...
    Editors note: So apparently the MSI 8800's sold out. For $234USD, you can get yourself an XFX 8800GT off of Dell. Here is the entire list of the 8800GT's Dell has in stock.

    I ordered a few hours back, ship estimate is December 10th.



    It also claims 2 games come with it, but doesn't list what they are. The non-oc version can come with DiRT and a LoTR game, but I have no idea what this comes with. Otherwise.... overclocked 8800gt for well under retail even after taxes, a good deal.

    well at that price you could sell both at retail and still make 20.00 a piece the price on the gt won't go down near Christmas, there won't be any in stock any place. Thx Zek ordered two should help me pay for my GTX. Retail for those are 269.00 and you won't see a retail price anytime soon. It is just like the G0 quads they never sold at retail unless you count day one, even today they are 20.00 to 30.00 over the Intel retail price. They will never go down before Xmass and even when the 8800 gts 512mb comes out they will be even more popular because the 8800 gts 512mb is really not much better but will cost more make the 8800 gt even more popular. Also if they do go down in price just cancel the order. It's a Win WIN!!!! for the record I'm selling theses bad boys. 2 weeks before Xmass is perfect.

    Damnit, just as I have about $250 USD rapidly burning a hole in my pocket while I try to get an 8800 so I can use my computer, this comes along. But low and behold it doesn't ship for friggin ages.

    who the hell cares if its goin to take till dec 10th or so, ur goin to save at least 50 bucks compared to the 269 versions, and a lot of people buy the ssc or oc versions that can b 319!!!!!!!i mean 50-90 bucks cheaper is one hell of a deal, and as long as ur goin to wait to see a 269 in stock u mite as well get a dell one and wait a little.just logical thkin IMO

    its a shame this offer only exists for the US. I cant find anything about it on the UK site....yet again Us Uk folk are being screwed over.....life is cruel....

    Im still looking to get the 112 8800GTS anyways but if this was a lot cheaper for more or less the same performance I would have got this instead.....

    No they are not substandard. They are all made by Foxconn for Nvida anyway MSI EVGA etc.. just distribute them. The cards are all the same basically.

    Foxconn makes about 80 percent of computer devices made then they are brand by other companies so you must really hate alot of electronics.

    The cards are made exactly the same the only difference is XFX has a double lifetime warranty and MSI has a three year warranty and changing the heatsink won't void a XFX warranty.

    same thing really but i got your point. I have had great experiences with Foxconn but I like EVGA, XFX, PNY and MSI in that order, best.
