View Full Version : 8800Ultra Black Pearl?

07-09-07, 02:16 PM
I was wondering, why did Newegg take this card completly off their website? And also, how come the ONLY place I can find this card listed for sale but Out of stock for the last month or so is Evga.com?

I was wondering, does anyone know a site where I can find this card other than Evga.com?

Thank you.

Edit: How much more powerful is the 8800Ultra from the GTX?

EVGA probably only made a very small number of these cards, I mean it is name the black pearl. Newegg most likely took it off because they aren't getting another shipment in anytime soon, if ever. If you want a high clocked card w/ the water cooler, get an XFX 8800 Ultra XXX and install the waterblock yourself.

What resolution do you use?

If you use 2560x1600 I'd just keep the two 7950gx2 and for the next GPU that's supposed to be 2-3x more powerful than the 8800gtx.

If you use anything lower, I'd sell both cards (might get about $250 a piece on Ebay) and then buy a regular 8800gtx. :)

Screw waiting for Nvidias nex gen card which will most likely be out in November. Get an 8800 now and enjoy Crysis when it comes out.
