Three weeks ago NV launched the GeForce 8800 onto the market. Availability is not really that bad and prices are finally settling a little. Time for another review !
Hey I have to say that I knew upfront the 8800 products would be a great success as quite frankly they're really something else aren't they ? But I am surprised when I browse the Guru3D.com forums to see how many of you almost immediately after our review either ordered or bought a GeForce 8800. I mean, this is an expensive product for sure. It also confirms what I have been spotting for a longer while now. Percentage wise I think that more and more people tend to invest in a high-end product compared to a couple of years ago. It makes sense yet it doesn't. I mean a lot of people tend to see it as an investment for the next 2 years while others simply have more to spend. I think there's also a third ideology behind buying a high-end graphics card. Pretty much any modern PC can utilize the card really well thus it keeps you from spending 400-700 EUR on an XBOX 360 or Playstation 3 because one thing is a certainty; and that's that the latest graphics cards will always have a leading edge over consoles. So a lot of people these days tend to spend that money on an expensive graphic card that is upgradeable rather then console technology.
That's also a new trend as two years ago literally people where thinking that consoles would grow bigger and become a huge issue for PC gaming. PC gaming was dying and blah blah blah. Now think again and look where we are. The power of playing games on a PC is huge and definitely something that is here to stay.
With that in mind I'd like to guide you to today's review. We'll be looking at BFG's hottest product that money can buy, and that is of course the GeForce 8800 GTX with 768 MB of gDDR3 memory. A product that offers tremendous amounts of performance, image quality and offers Full DirectX compatibility whether you play your "old" DirectX 8 and 9 titles or even the upcoming DirectX 10.
Gentlemen... fire up your power supplies and make that PC roar ! Next page please.
