    Re: Which way to go....

    XFX makes a very nice and fast 8800GTS in my opinion. The performance increase compared to the GeForce 7 series range from about 50% to 200%. However I have no hesistation to recommend the 8800GTS and 8800GTX as the fastest cards on the planet this Christmas. The only ones worth buying in my opinion.

    I went with the EVGA 8800GTS. I have a 7800GT of the same brand and it has been good to me so far. Plus the $30 mail in rebate helped...

    evga is a good choice, now if they release an even better card in the next 90 days you can easily step up for the difference in price.

    LOL you're right. I remember when you got your 7900GT and I just missed out on the step up program from my 7800GT by a few days...

    What that (usually) translates into is : I wish I could afford one of those new cards

    Evidence of this being true, once some extra money comes in, the card is bought immediately

    LOL ,that is true. Actually though I was looking on Newegg's site and couldn't find anything I really wanted besides a new vid card. I couldn't justify spending say $250 on a card that was going to be only Direct X 9. So of course I took the plunge on the 8800...
