768MB Video Cards

It seems like just a year or so ago 256MB cards were the hot item.. That has since tripled.

Here is quite possible the best card on the market right now: CompUSA.com: BFG Technologies GeForce 8800 GTX Video Card, PCI Express, 768MB GDDR3 - BFGR88768GTXE - Computer Upgrades » Video Cards

I could certainly find a nice home for it.. :)

Does anybody here have one? What ard are you running and when do you plan to upgrade?

I currently have a 256MB, and bought a 512 a few days ago but will probably be returning it since it's an ATI and I found out that my motherboard doesn't support crossfire. I'd rather get two nVidias and do SLI, since my board is actually advertised as an SLI board. :)

I'm going to start saving pocket money for a new setup. I figure I can sell this one for a few hundred. My next one will have dual 512's, unless the 768's are readily available by then.

Yowch! $650 for a video card. <shudder>

I think I'll wait for a bit on that one. I'm not doing enough high-end gaming at the moment to justify the sticker price.

I'm running an ATI card with only 128MB on my main work machine, but it has dual DVI outputs. I use a laptop most of the time at home, but my gaming machine (P4 2.54GHz) has an older GeForce 256MB card in it that I have overclocked.

I think I need a newer computer before I can justify a bigger card. Or I can wait a while until they come down to a reasonable price ;)

$650 is not alot. The video card in my Mac cost $1000 but is has tons of ports and software with it.

It is a Matrox RTMac Pro Video Capture Card and it comes with RCA jack S-Video (Y/C) input/output Mini-DIN input/output VGA display output that drives a second computer monitor for dual-screen editing 48 kHz stereo audio input/output genlocked to video for perfect sync.

It was cool testing the dual-screen. I was able to have the forum here displayed in right monitor while looking at Google in the left.

Yeah, those Matrox cards are cool. But it is more than a video card, it has the video capture capabilities. I still think that $650 is a lot for a card, especially if all I would be doing on it would be gaming ;)

Damn, I still haven't gotten around to building myself that new computer. I need some cash to put into the "my computer is aging" fund.
