Thread Starter 
i bought zotac 8800 gts 640mb like 1 week ago for $120 well this card work fine runs all the game max out but im having this feeling that i should've wait until ati and nvidia released there new graphic card this month. so i can purchased an 8800 gt 512mb end of this month it will be cheaper.

should i sell it?

Why sell it if it plays all your games maxed?

I say keep it. If it is playing all your game well why get another.

considering the prices of the new cards comming are going to be in 300 - 500 range I doubt your going to see the 8800's drop... the 9800gtx's will be comming down tho.


and all games maxed out is all your going to see with a better card anyway..

stick with the 8800gt 640 its a good card

if u trade up everytime something comes out, you'll never get to play anything. make a decision and stick with it.

We have all these new graphics cards coming out, all doing the exact same thing.

If we only need the power of say an 8800GTS, then why is everyone buying the latest greatest thing.

The raw power of these new cards is not even necessary when our current cards play them just fine. Don't fall into the trap of marketing and consumerism.

"Keep the card. $120 was a great deal, you won't see a GT much lower then that any time soon me thinks, and who cares? You already have a card that performs just about as good as a 8800GT right now."

"Hold onto that till autumn, then get the 55nm GTX that hopefully nVidia will release then."
