I received a $50.00 coupon from PNY BUT i can only use it on Buy.com (dont ask me why, i was at Digital Life 2007 and the company was there). So is PNY good or not-so-great, cuz i cant afford a EVGA/XFX one, only can spend up to $220.00 max, so its either the PNY 8800 GT 512mb w/ coupon or 8800GT 256mb XFX one, OR XFX 7950 GT 512mb...


Thanks!

I owned a PNY 6600, and my X5200 was a PNY as well. They both looked like a$$ but worked as well as anything.

yea i know what you mean, just 512mb > 256mb rofl and a coupon is pretty cool, on newegg PNY 8800GT 512mb has some good ratings but i have to get it off Buy.com lol

Another vote for the 8800GT over old 7950GT :)
8th generation vs 7th generation
My 8800 GTX killed my 7800 GTX SLI ...and the 8800GT is only marginally slower to my 8800 GTX.

Ive owned 2 PNYs, a 6800GT and a 7800GT, they are both still alive and kicking just fine. They were release day purchases btw.
