Default Question about XFX 8800 Ultra

Just wondering if $80 is a good deal for a 8800 Ultra or is there newer cards for around the same price that perform better.

Just wondering as my 8800 GTS 640mb sounds like it is about to hit the bricks...

The 8800 Ultra is still a beast of a card capable of running BFBC2 at max settings.

He never specified resolution. If he's playing at 1280X1024 like me, it might be possible? I don't know since I don't own the game nor seen the reviews for it, but you catch my drift.

If he wants to game that 8800GT will "suck large" compared to the GTX or Ultra......
