Do not get me wrong I did not mean to say that they will disappear, I'm just saying why make more 8800 GT's when they already have some good ones out. I love my 8800 GT and its a BFG. I just assumed that the 8800 series would still be around, but no longer any newer model's.
the price is a good deal if its going to be $175.

In my eyes the 8800 Ultra is still king. For now.
