At the end of October 2007, nVidia has released the Geforce 8800GT. Originally aimed to be a mid-cost model, the card surpasses the more expensive 8800 GTS and in some cases even the 8800 GTX. Unsurprisingly, this fact led to a huge demand all around the world, causing the card to be virtually unavailable in Germany.
Some people even went crazy and paid 350€ or more for available cards on eBay, quite a high number compared to the street-price of 220€. Today, I finally managed to get a PNY Geforce 8800GT for a regular price, the store assured me it would be in stock and delivered by Wednesday. Fingers crossed – The days of my ATI X1900 XT are soon to be over 🙂
