The 8800 GTS 512mb is only like $30 more than the 8800 GT 512mb, so yeah i'd get the GTS

GT = $169 after MIR
GTS = $199 after MIR

I know I'm not a common poster here, but I like to stop in almost daily and see whats up here too.

And now to jack this thread. Why? Because its what I like to do.

I have an 8800 GT 512 XFX Card left over from a shuttle build that never came full circle due to BIOS updates (SP35P2Pro and 45nm C2Ds).

I bought it in december before XFX started cutting the fan wires to save a quarter on the fan. So, it does not have that issue (tested it with a P4, it works just fine). It has been a paper weight ever since. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I have already sold off the shuttle but this bad boy still lingers.

I am willing to sell it off for $100 bucks + Shipping. I paid $265 when it came out in December. I also have it registered with XFX and the double lifetime warranty deal. I already tried my hand on ebay where I managed to sell quite a few cards in the past, but no one is biting atm. I dont care to give ebay another $5 for free either. Send me a message if you are interested. Or if you want to work out a deal, my ears are open. Wesmantx05@yahoo.com

Like I say it is just not doing me any good collecting dust, and one of you can pick it up for a steal. Let me know.

Should I make a new thread for this?
