How about a recertified GTX280 for $220 after $30 MIR with free shipping???
Corsair VX-550 for $60 after promo (EMCLTLR37) discount and $30 MIR with free shipping. Best price I've ever seen on this PSU. Its only negative, for some of you, is that it is not modular.
ASUS 9600GSO 96sp 384mb for 34.99 after MIR w/COD WAW
Smokin' deal here guy's. I have 12 8800GS/9600GSO as the backbone of my farm and these card's are rock solid. Buy 2 and save $6.00 in volume savings. MIR is good for two cards at the same time and you get a copy of COD/WAW. Only 48 left right now!
is the 384 version of 9600gso better then the 512 one ?
For Folding @ Home, yes. F@H is very shader dependent. The 512mb version is better in games due to the increased mem bandwith.
I wonder if anyone would be willing to buy one of these and post it to me? Card only, you can keep the box etc.
And i'll pay obviously.
This would be for folding. And i may want two... or three!
Can someone PM me with a total price, for two and for three, across the pond ?
So I get to keep the UPC for rebate purposes?
Dude-did you really have to say that? Off course you're paying
PM me your address and I will see what the post charges will be
Buck, do you know for sure that these are the 96SP versions??? I just ordered two when I went back and look at a review posted today that says "NOT AN 8800gs. This has the same memory interface but only half the stream processors. 48 on the gso compared to 96 on the gs." (sounds like a Folder, huh?) Asus's website does not state the shader count. Should I cancel the order?
Edit: And why do we tolerate Nvidia's shadow games with shader counts and manufacturing processes?
Edit 2: Info from Asus:
ASUStech-Chris> Hello, how may I help you?
thebluebumblebee> need to know the shader count for EN9600GSO/HTDP/384M
ASUStech-Chris> The 9600GSO has 96 - whereas the newer G94 based 9600GSOs only have 48.
thebluebumblebee> how do I know the difference?
ASUStech-Chris> You'll have to look at the specs - the 9600GSO are all close to out of production, but if it has a 192 bit memory bus, it's going to have the higher shader count. If a card has the 256bit memory bus, it'll have the lower shader count.
Hope that's clear as mud for everyone!
You are correct Bluebumblebee, 192 bit mem interfaces only show up on 96sp cards. The memory will always be 384mb or 768mb. Avoid the DDR2 versions, as the have lower ppd output.
did not know until today that the 9600GSO was G92 based. I thought it was G80 based.
OK, I'm getting back to folding, and I need the BEST deal on a folding card for my 3rd rig. Looking at spending less than $100.
each of us has our own definition of "best". Please refine your request.
This is the best $$$ for PPD deal going right now:
If your ceiling is $100.00, that's pretty much it.
Yeah, that's the ceiling, since I'm just getting another cruncher set up. Damn, I'm spending more money on hardware now than I did when I spent all of my time benching.
So I was browsing through my local CL pages and I came across this listing for a 98XX series card for $89 used. It had the link in there for what the card actually looks like new So I got curious and called the add-lister to verify the "validity" and "sanity" of her listing (I'll get to it in a minute). She said yeah that is the exact card that I am selling for $89 I doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that for $89 this is the best deal (for a folding HW) I have ever come across Here she is running and folding
wow... must be her ex-boyfriend's rig.
Supposedly someone from that household bought it but could not get it to work with their PC. I'm thinking the PSU criteria got the better of them
Check out his 9800gtx for 80 bucks shipped :
and this guys 9800gt for 82 shipped. :
Your welcome bogmali
This guy has 2 8800gt 256mb's 60 each or 2 for 100, and like he said same ppd as the 512's.
Bogi. I hate you. That is all.
Now now now theres no need for hatin'
He's actually jealous Oh wait a minute, that is actually synonymous with hating
For whatever reason, the 256MB versions of the 8800GT are known to have the best PPD/watt, although some of the newer cards are not on the list.
