...with OCZ GeForce 8800 GTX

OCZ Technology has reentered the graphics card market with its latest OCZ 8800 GTX. The new OCZ 8800 GTX arrives clocked at the stock 575 MHz core and 1800 MHz memory speeds. It’s equipped with 768MB of GDDR3 memory on a 384-bit memory interface. While the initial specifications sound like a run-of-the-mill GeForce 8800 GTX based card OCZ Technology has a few tricks up their sleeves.

Each OCZ 8800 GTX is equipped with premium GDDR3 memory. The memory is also additionally screened to give users greater overclocking headroom. OCZ Technology doesn’t mention how high the cards can overclock.

Nevertheless, OCZ Technology VP of Marketing and Communications, Alex Mei claims "By providing the best components, then hand screening them we can ensure the best hardware platform in which tweakers can start overclocking. This allows high end consumers to overclock to fit thier unqiue personal requirements."

Expect the OCZ 8800 GTX to hit the usual retailers tomorrow. Pricing is expected to be a little higher than competing GeForce 8800 GTX based cards.

I still got the guy's point..which holds true with me...even $500 is way more than I'm willing to spend on a Video card....and its just a personal thing too...because I actually in all seriousness have the money to afford one at that price too...it just doesn't compute as logical to me, just for a few scant months I can brag about how uber my video card is to others.

The prices change to fast...just doesn't make sense to blow a wad on something that in 4-6 months will be SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper.
