Yes, I know the 8800 will blow away any 8600. But I am in school, jobless, have 3 kids, and living off my wifes income. Gimme some slack. Now, I can only spend in the neigborhood of $100-$150 on my video card, but will be upgrading the rest of my PC too so it will still be a major improvement over what I have ATM. I have looked at Tigerdirect.com and newegg.com and they have some pretty good deals. I guess this is what I want from everyone: 1. Which models should I consider? 2. What sites you guys get good deals on? Please, no flames such as "your'e wasting your money" or "my rig will blast yours to bits" as I am aware of this already. I just want to get the most for my money, and am looking for deals I may have missed.
