Now I gotta decide on what brand of 8800GTS before March 1st...eVGA, BFG, or PNY!
I would go with EVGA over all others at the same price. They have a dual lifetime warranty, StepUp, and their new cross shipping program.

Paul, I don't think eVGA is the one with the "Dual Lifetime Warranty", it's XFX.

And with eVGA, you must, MUST, register within 30 days of the purchase, otherwise their so called "Lifetime Warranty" gets reduce down to a 1 year warranty.

That is the reason why I'm going to buy me an XFX.

EVGA also features a dual lifetime, unless they have downgraded to just 1 lifetime. LOL

eVGA's warranty is non-transferable, which means its a single lifetime warranty. XFX is the only company that has a transferable warranty that I am aware of.

And to make matters even worse with eVGA, you "MUST INCLUDE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL INVOICE / RECEIPT", and that's from their info: http://evga.com/support/lifetime/

Not that I will misplace a copy of an invoice but I don't think you need a copy of the original invoice with an XFX.

XFX looks like the better deal...

BFG has a lifetime warranty as well and you dont have to register your card, just keep your reciept. THey also offer a 50 dollar rebate, comes with a free t-shirt, teflon mouse pads, and GPU/case stickers. They also have 24/7 customer support and ALWAYS answer the phone. Never dealt with EVGA or any others but BFG has my vote and has had me since the 5700LE. lol I highly recommend them.

the price of the 30"dell is droping like a rock. Down $300 from the last time i check. I plan on picking one up some time in 07 along with another 8000gtx. I think as other companies start to compete with dell for sales of monitors in the xhd rez we will start to see a lot more people running SLI 8800gts/gtx .

side note the 32" hd lcd in my sig has a native res of 1386*768 so I'm expecting a huge differance on the new dell even though I will be losing 2"
