LOL Open Box 9800GX2 on the Egg
Only $369.99 HA HA HA HA HA!!! And its ASUS LOL Thats alright people on eBay are still trying for $600 for sealed ones in eBay stores for the 9800GX2!
The GTX295 costs 2x as much as a GX2 and offers probably 25% increase in performance, assuming you get one that doesn't have issues with it. There are still plenty of new XFX GX2s selling.
Yeah They are 2x more money and only 50% more increase in performance until they tweak the drivers more to optimize them. But they are still available to purchase. its just like a Hard drive you can only fit so many of them in a PC the bigger better faster drive costs woo much for the size and speed unless your saving on space. Space happens to be more important to others than price. Cost and space of running more PCs may out weight the cost savings of cheaper GPUs.
Just think running 1TB of HD space if they were all 20GB drives and the cost of running them all.Edited by l337h4l - 3/2/09 at 10:47am
