And it only uses a single slot too - nice. I love my gts but I really hate double slot video cards.

YES !

Double slots are the reason my upgrade to the 8800 was a problem.
Now, I can get the 8800 in here with no problem, well except one.
I doubt if the price will come down very much since the single slot is a selling point.
Regardless, we have a single slot solution for the 8800 move, so I am estatic.

I did not see a price using the link. Am I overlooking it?
Looks like its release will be close the the FPSC X10 release. Maybe?
I just wish this news was from the source (NVIDIA), instead of through the grapevine.

You have to realise that the existing 8800's are dual slot for a reason. In these high powered cards, ample cooling is needed, especially mine since it's overclocked, so you would get more performance out of them, high heat level = reduced performance.

It has a really nice fan...see?
Thanks Rick for the heads-up on this.





Looks like its SLI ready too, so there's another plus for those who already have a two slot version, or were thinking about getting one.
They could swap it out for two of these puppies in the same space, although a single two slotted Ultra would probably be a better option.

Yes, it is a good card. That's why he made the post.
I found this blurb that states a release date of October 29th.

AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ w/ HT Technology 1000MHz FSB w/ 512KB Cache, 2GB DDR PC-3200 - 2x1024, ATI RADEON™ X1900XTX 512MB

Thanks for the link Rick
BUTT
Nvidia must have dropped the ball, because the GT is not there when you click the BUY NOW button.
Even when you click the WHERE TO BUY button, the GT is nowhere to be found.

I like the fact that they claimed to have released the card, but have they really released it or just announced it?
How is it launched if you can't purchase it?

Quote: "The wait is over. Awesome power. Awesome price.
The GeForce 8800 GT offers the perfect combination of power, performance, and price that gamers have been waiting for. "

The wait for the announcement maybe, but we are still waiting for the card.
And what price? There is no price listed or even a link to a retailer with a price.
NVIDIA better stick to the tech part and let someone else do the marketing, because false advertising sucks.

If anyone can find a retailer that actually sells these, then please post a link here for the community.
I will continue to search myself. (in vain it seems)

this thing double posted on one of my edits.... sorry


ANYWAY


I FOUND AN 8800 GT FOR SALE!!! ONLY $269 (US)
This price is nearly the same as the 320mb 8800 GTS, but the GT has 512mb of memory and it is smaller in size.
Now, we have an inexpensive 8800 that will work in a single slot.
AMEN!

Here are two more from NewEGG that are different manufactures, but they cost a little more at $289 & $299.
Still, they are both under $300, which isn't bad for compared to the higher cost double slotted 8800's.

I'm glad I waited for this card.
Thanks again Rick, for bringing this card to our attention before its release.

Cheers

XFX makes three different versions of the 8800 GT. (overclocked)
I tried to post the link to the specific page but this forum thingy doesn't recognize it as a valid path for some reason.
Anyway, goto the menu at the top of XFX's main page and select...

I just got these emailed to me:

The GeForce 8800 GT launch was a huge success. Here are some of the press quotes:

"Right now though, the GeForce 8800 GT offers you the best value on the planet when it comes to 3D gaming cards. You won’t be disappointed in its performance, and you won’t be disappointed in the cost." -- HardOCP

"The performance advantage and price utterly destroyed our perception of the GPU landscape." -- AnandTech

"In the end, Nvidia has taken its time, but offers an exceptional card with the GeForce 8800GT." -- Toms Hardware

"NVIDIA's second foray into 65nm GPU technology is a resounding success in our humble opinion. And how could anyone argue a Graphics product that consumes less power, costs less and performs better than the previous generation?" -- Hot Hardware

"A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!" -- FiringSquad

"The bottom line is whether you’ve got $250 to spend on a new graphics card or $350, the GeForce 8800 GT is the best GPU on the market right now. The price/performance ratio simply can’t be beat." -- FiringSquad

"That's a stunning total package, sort of what it would be like if Jessica Biel had a brain." Tech Report

"With pricing between $199 and $249, I find it hard to recommend anything else—especially since we found generally playable settings at 2560x1600 resolution in some of the most intensive new games (except for Crysis, which is in a class by itself.)" Tech Report

"Performance has suddenly become affordable; and the next-gen, finally, will start to become the now-gen, for many, many more gamers out there." Neoseeker

"NVIDIA wants to seriously put a hurting in ATI, and this is a good weapon to help further knock ATI off the sales charts. NVIDIA now dominates the VGA playing field." motherboards.org

Yeah, I just ordered mine a few minutes ago at TigerDirect.com. (my first link above)

I would have bought it sooner if NVIDIA would have made it easier to find.
I searched their website the morning of the 29th and couldn't find anything.
I thought that the news about the 29-10 release was wrong until I saw your other post with the link.

TigerDirect kinda sucks though ...

TigerDirect.com reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. "

Whatever happened to truth in advertising?
How can they advertise a product for sale, list the price, take the order, then say that they might not deliver.
What's the point in that?
How hard could it be for them to keep an inventory and list it as out of stock when they sell out?

I just hope it gets here in time, and that I have enough money left over to buy FPSC X10!

Quote: ""The bottom line is whether you’ve got $250 to spend on a new graphics card or $350, the GeForce 8800 GT is the best GPU on the market right now. The price/performance ratio simply can’t be beat." -- FiringSquad"

Yeah $350 is about right after you take in account the Power Supply upgrade required for most systems. (my 400 watt can't cut the mustard)
$269 + $69 (ps) + Shipping + Tax

I bought a gig of RAM from Tiger Direct a while back,got the cheapest shipping option (10 day delivery or something like that).It came in the mail 2 days later and it worked great.
Plus,I believe there are numbers posted on the site for customer service.They even recommend that you call before you place your final order to try to make sure everything works and is compatible.
My memory got to me 8 days early and works great.

Please have mercy and use the search function.

I guess TigerDirect.com is just doing a CYA move.
It seems my order was processed the same day, and I should get it tomorrow.
I ordered on 30-10 and it is supposed to be here on 2-11, so that is fast really.
So, I guess TigerDirect.com is a good place to order from.
I'll know for sure tomorrow. (I hope that power supply fits in my case)

Dude, why feel guilty about someone's kindness?
Your parents want to see you happy, which is a good thing.
So, don't feel bad about it.
Instead, you could return the favor by doing something for them that will make them happy.

I did get my package today, so TigerDirect.com is okay after all.
I have not installed it yet though, but it all looks okay.
You were right Fred, I had nothing to worry about.
Thanks.

I can't say i agree with the last quote from motherboards.org,
ATI is dominating nvidia in midrange video cards. The ATI 2900 didn't sell well to begin with, it's not like this will change much for them.

The card in development by ATI, the 3850, is supposed to match or surpass the power of the 8800 GT while being priced competetively. It's release date is far off, and i'm hoping it's decent since i have a crossfire compilant motherboard, but it shows a recurring market strategy by ATI which has proved sucessful in the past.

Wait, so is this new video card essential for X10? I was thinking of getting it, as I am hopefully getting a new laptop for Christmas, but the card with it would be the "included in price video card".

Haven't had time to read the rest of the post as I'm busy at the moment, sorry if this has already been answered.

Yeah Dell XPS. But the problem is I can only manage to afford the default graphics card that comes with it (Intel Graphics Media accelerator 3100 or something), I assume that would not run the program (or the games at least) that well. Although I do know it's direct X compatible.

nope no chance it has to be direct x 10 compatible,

I honestly reccomend you wait abit long and get one with the right graphics chip otherwise its not worth considering runing x10.
