8900GTX and 8950GX2 Priced

Nvidia has given word about their latest G80 series graphics cards. It looks like the top-tiered GeForce 8950GX2 will cost $599, which isn't too surprising knowing that it will be the best card around for approximately twelve seconds.

time to sell my card, I hope I get at least $400 for it. Anybody else selling their cards?

JsonHenry3509d ago

I am not selling my 8800GTS 640meg card just so I can spend another $250 and get a couple extra frames. NEVER buy a refresh of a generation of card if you already have one. Just save your money and wait until the new line comes out in 6-9 months.

Agreed but the reason I am going to sell my card immediately is because rest of my computer sucks(a [email protected] X2 3800, 2GB DDR400, I spent my upgrade money on PS3), for ex.: World of Conflict bench runs at avg of 16-17 fps no matter what res. I am going to wait for Far Cry 2 next spring to do a total upgrade. I hope 9 series comes out by then.

Main Point in all this: NEVER BUY A HIGH END VIDEO CARD ALONE.

I was getting excited for nothing, the source is from February, 2007, thats half a year old.

I'd say FK you Nvidia, bought my 7950GX2 last year in sept for $650. Now wont get much out of it. And their lack of support for quad sli and sli in vista till a month back also pissed me off. I'll wait for the new 9xxx card.

Edit: I met a person from XFX during a recent exhibition and he was saying it should be out in a couple of months time. Prob in Dec or Jan.

soccerstar3509d ago

when are the 9xxx cards coming out?

CaptainMeatwad3509d ago

I've heard they'll be out by next summer, but they may come earlier

what should i get a nvidia or ATI which card is better

Charlie26883509d ago

NVIDIA wins by default and you can only blame ATI for it

ATIs high end card is the Radeon HD 2900XT
NVIDIA high end is the GeForce 8800GTX (or Ultra)

the Radeon HD 2900XT card that on paper was suppose to be a direct competitor for NVIDIAs 8800GTX cant even match the 8800GTX and even struggles with the 8800GTS on practice

many experts blame its lack of performance to the drivers but after several new ones nothing has changed, and ATI has yet to announce a new card to compte with NVIDIAs new cards

Bloodmask3509d ago

always releases the high end cards first. At least it seems like it since ATI got bought out.

I've used both cards. I like the ATI cards just bc it seems like they have a more robust color palette.

LeShin3509d ago

Jesus, why pay that much money for something which is gonna be obsolete in a few months??!!

Man, that's why I'm sticking to consoles from here on in.

It's called being an enthusiast. You know, always wanting the latest and greatest.

Rageaholic3509d ago

But you make it sound like you cant use the card for another GOOD 2 years.
