"8800GTS in dry ice can outclock 9800GTX on stock cooling"
No, really? WOW!
There is a member on this forum benching a 9800GTX at 891 core on stock cooling
afaik, and the really good clocking cards haven't even started to come out of the woodwork. Imagine what that card could do on dice or LN2
You are so bent out of shape that your card is now second in line that you are dillusional.

That said, if I had everything to do over again(as in today) I would still buy the 8800gts(G92) + Crysis for $229 after $30MIR. As you pointed out Iandh they have released a card that does cost more to produce. So I doubt that Nvidia will be lowering prices much on the the 9800gtx, perhaps they will drop around ~$275. But then again maybe not, once it no longer has to compete with the 8800gts(EOL'd) it should stand on it's own.
Would it be nice to bench @ 850+mhz core and 2500+mhz memory? Yes. Does the increased OCability justify it's price? For me, no. I'm perfectly content with my cards performance and if that changes a vmod will at least give me a chance at achieving 850mhz or more... Do we even know if the 9800gtxs respond well to vmods(really asking, not a rhetorical)?
I've already stated that I didn't think the 9800GTX was enough of an improvement for me to upgrade, it just happened that I decided to keep it after designing ramsinks for it.
The sad thing is that all of these 8800GTS owners are so bent out of shape about this, that they are acting like I am attacking the 8800GTS, an excellent card, rather than what I am actually doing... which is defending the 9800GTX.

You are now officially the third poster in this thread with a broken sarcasm detector.
