8 series are becoming CRAP's ? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
This is one of the rare cases in which I can confidently recommend going SLI. Get another 8800GT. They are not dropping in price solely because they don't perform as well as newer cards, they are dropping (and I mean DROPPING) in price because the 9-series came out so friggin fast and this new top end is just on the horizon. You would have been called crazy if you thought the 8800GT would drop $150 in 6 months.

I'm going to grab another 512-P3-N801 ASAP

280 at 600,260 at 450,200 around 300.Good,i am not paying shipment,so i dont care really.I love when parents pay shipping.

So you say,get an SLI mobo and another 1gig gt super of palit,and go sli?
GT200:350$
SLI mobo+1gig 8800gt+super in Turkey=300+133=443$ O.o

Really,god damn Turkey's economy.

Look at the 4870 when it's available to you. I'm going to take a hard look at it.

the 8800gt is a great bang for your buck card right now. i would consider getting a second one for cheap to run in sli, or you can trade up and get 2 x 9600gt cards and run em in sli.

your single 8800gt will still run a lot of games, but for the future, you may want to consider sli as an option.

I don't know about the 8800gt, never had one, but I don't consider my 8 series 'crap' and I don't intend to upgrade to the 280 unless they slash the price by half before the next generation.. Which they won't.

Seems like it's just 'more of the same but bigger' after all, so far. I'll look at the ATI offerings but somehow I doubt those will bring many changes to the table either.
