Intro

Just last week the entire graphics card market was shaken to its core with the release of the 8800GT. With glowing reviews and a price / performance ratio which proved to be through the roof, the card promptly sold out across the world. With increasing demand and virtually nonexistent stock replenishment, many potential customers of the 8800GT have been left high and dry with seemingly no alternative in sight. Unfortunately, with stock shortages the prices of the 8800GT have skyrocketed to over $300 at some online retailers in the US and Canada. So, where are potential customers supposed to turn? Luckily EVGA has provided somewhat of an answer: the 8800GTS 640MB SSC Edition.

With all the hoopla flying around the 8800GT, the release of EVGA’s new SSC Edition has gone almost completely under the radar. This is a shame because at about $375CAD it could present a potential alternative to customers left out in the cold by the lack of 8800GT stock. With it, you get EVGA’s legendary Lifetime Warranty, Step-Up program and second-to-none customer service. Yet, if this card fails to perform up to the standards of the 8800GT it will be doomed to infamy as an “also ran” in the graphics card performance wars.
