Only 47 left, $250.

I have no idea what Galaxy is like, but it is hard to find the 8800GT in stock, and at that low of a price.

buy.com has the XFX Alpha Dog 512MB for $249 shipped. I'd probably buy that one, but I'm waiting until after the Christmas dust settles.

Wow, it seems like they're even less available right now.

I went for it.

Came to $229 + ship - rebate, so $247-$20, USD.

Let's hope I get a good one.


Also, the only way Americans can pay is via PayPal. I hope I didn't make a poor choice in using that.

Nice!

My buddy ordered a Galaxy 8800GTS from there.

I've read up a little bit on Galaxy in the last week or so, seem to be reputable enough, and apparently they are a favorite of (budget?) overclockers.

I have to admit, ATI sucks in this round. :p

The last 4 cards in this house have been ATI's, but I think the next 2 are going to be NV. The 3850/70 are pretty good for people on a tighter budget though.

FYI, buy.com e-mailed to let me know the XFX card is back in stock, but they've also jacked their price another $10 to $273 shipped. Newegg pushed their availability date back another week.

My Galaxy arrived today. I can see that I have the new cooler on it, but I won't know more until I get it home.

Nice, be sure to let us know how it runs.

My buddy got his GTS in, unfortunately he's still waiting on his PSU as it was out of stock.

I installed it, and have about 10 minutes of Portal played. SO much faster than the X800 it replaced. I have lots of Filtering and AA options to try, but I was just playing the game at 1680x1050, with everything on High and full HDR, and the game was usually 200-240fps, but there was one scene where things would drop to 100fps if I looked at it right.

This card is unusual in that it has 2 PCIe power sockets. I have one of them plugged in. It also has a jumper to overvolt the card, but I'm running it stock right now. ATITool crashed the system when I tried to let it auto-overclock the card. It actually seemed OC the card, then go way too far in bringing the speed back down. Not sure.
