Actually, now that I think about it, I don't really want something more powerful. I'm so satisfied with my 8800 GTX that I have no desire to upgrade it. I feel like my system is still plenty powerful to handle anything that I throw at it.

Yeah I saw 'em pop on Newegg and couldn't resist. I got a regular XFX and it has the "standard return policy" so if I don't like it for whatever the reason I can send it back within 30days.

My 8800GTX I've had since 11|2006 is finally being put to rest

Nvidia have way too many cards competing with each other thats the problem for them. If the GX2 didn't exist, this card would have been great. The card should also be 100 cheaper imo.

Between GTX260 and GX2...depending on price and more feedback (its going to be awhile before AUS sees it..at least from my usual store). GTX280 seems nice..but farrrk...price is just a bit insane even for my standards -.-

my G80 is fine, will wait and see what ATi has to offer, and then maybe buy 9800GX2.

GTX 280 for 650+ bucks is ****ing insane, nvidia price fail
