My System Specs

Default

The 8800GTX is a screamer Card for old technology...as far as being on par with any other 8 Series or 9 Series, absolute crap...the only Card that was faster was the Ultra. As said, even the new 9 Series Cards weren't as fast, why do you think we all held onto that 8800 GTX for so long...didn't make sense at all to "downgrade" to a 9 Series.
check out the Bandwidth of a 8800GTX compared to any 9 Series Card...it is faster by far!! Perhaps not as economical, but in raw speed, faster! It was only with the introduction of the GTX 2 Seires did the 8800 GTX finally run up against a faster GPU (put out nby Nvidia)...
The old 8800 GTX and 8800 Ultra are still damn fast Cards and I would take either of those over ANY 9 Series Card any day!
