    also Dx10 compatible?

    Also is SLI the same as PCI-e?

    Any good reviews please post a link.
    Thanks.

    SLI mean u can connect to "SLI able cards to run together" and PCI-e is like AGP but better, its the Interface. and DX10 the Nvidia 8800's have DX10, i think they are the only cards with DX10, but you cant use DX10 until Windows Vista Final.

    the 8800 series

    Gigabyte Geforce 8800GTX (575MHz core/1800MHz memory)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814125049

    XFX Geforce 8800GTX (575MHz core/1800MHz memory)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150205

    BFG Tech Geforce 8800GTS (500MHz core/1600MHz memory)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814143074

    XFX Geforce 8800GTS (500MHz core/1600MHz memory)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150204

    In my opinion these are the Best brands for DX10 and the 8800 series cards.

    PCI-E is how the card plugs into your PC

    SLI means you are running two PCI-E cards in your computer.

    ROFL eVGA is not, it is a Decent brand but XFX Gigabyte BFG are the TOP 3

    and the ATI R600 will support Dx10 they come out in first quarter of 2007. The R600 will of course be Direct X 10, Shader Model 4.0 compliant.

    Thats really a matter of opinion, what standard makes one developer better than another? thats like saying Corsair RAM is better than Crucial ram (although its a decent brand) :eek:neeye:

    I am unhappy with my 7950 GX2 because the freak'n thing can melt steel.

    It works fine but is just to hot and if I overclock it it starts to stutter.

    I can return it so the question is should I get another 7950 GX2 or an 8800 GTX????

    I think the 8800's are PCI-e so they will work on my motherboard; which by the way is awesome.

    The 8000's only have 768 memory, but I have read that they are much faster than two 7950 GX2's.

    Anyone have any information or ideas on the subject please let me know.
    Thanks.

    The memory of a videocard doesn't have to say anything about it's speed ;) And btw, the 7950GX2 can only use 512MB, not 1024MB ;)

    Go with the nVidia Geforce 8800GTX :) It's an AWESOME card, and alot faster then your 7950GX2 :D

    The 8800GTX is only about 20% faster than the 7950GX2 or sli 7900GT' so it's not worth the upgrade.

    eVGA is the best manufacturer IMO. How can they be bad? What other company offers:
    Double life time warranty?
    Ability to add custom coolers and not loose your warranty?
    Step up program?
    Good prices?

    None! BFG are all overpriced for very small OC's.

    BFG are a poor company compared to the rest I would say.

    No software bundle only a life-time warrenty which for most people is only 1-2years before you upgrade again. Costs more than the average brand.

    These 8800 GTX cards are HUGE.
    Like around 10 1/2". I only have about 10 5/8" .

    Anyone using an 8800 GTX with the Gigabyte 3D Aurora case?

    its a great upgrade if he can *return* the GX2 like he say's he can, and get a 8800GTX. i came from 7800GT SLi, and my 8800GTS is a nice upgrade ... quite a bit faster in most situations!

    I agree. With the G80 series thier all the same and one is probably better off buying the brand with the best customer service. eVGA has great Cust service.
