Anyone with a decent higher end cpu still running the 8800? I am wonder cus I am about to get $415 this week and am going to get my base parts and should be left with ~100 left after I sell my WoW account and wanted to see how the 8800 runs with a good cpu, and if i can get away with my 8800 for now and buy the haf 922 so I can actually have good airflow so my parts wont overheat.

The 8800's a solid card... tough it out for a bit if you need to.

Is this a 512mb version?

It'll hold you out until you can get another.

Keep your eye on the newly released GTS 450. I'm curious to see how it stacks up against the 5770.

my friend had a Geforce 8800, it is a decent card, but with the speed that are increasing the power of games the last few years, it's quickly out dated, I got the Geforce 9600 card like a year ago and now it's a pile of crap, I am too cheap to buy a new computer until this one is at least a few years old. I would like to buy all my parts and put it together, but by the time i can afford all the parts, if I bought any now, they would be outdated. So waiting for that time to come, university makes me poor and we just built a good computer for my room mate (through trial and error as it was the first custom built PC we put together without help.)

So hopefully this one will get me through FFXIV until at least the first big expansion in a year or so.

My old card is an 8800 GTS 640mb. Still have it, but its been sealed away in its box for about 2 years now. Am willing to sell it too, if anyone is interested in SLi with them.

im happy if it will run ffxiv smoothly on low settings with sound on. I would think that all my current fps problems I have currently are due to my REALLY bad cpu and my 2gigs of ddr2

im not looking at buying one, the 8800 is what i have currently and im just seeing if i will be able to run the game smoothly in the cities after I put in my new cpu and ram. I plan on getting a 5850 eventually but that will be a while.

Expect to be playing on minimum settings. You'll survive.
