Selling 3 video cards:
  1. 1x BFG GeForce 8800 Ultra OC - the fastest version of the 8800 Ultra, which in turn was the fastest video card out there until very recently - $SOLD shipped or best offer
  1. 2x Radeon HD 2900XT - 512Mb versions; come with original accessories. Great for crossfire, or buy them individually - $SOLD

All great cards, perfect condition. See my signature for feedback, and send me PM's if you have any questions. I am willing to ship internationally for additional fees (depending on country and speed) and will eat the PayPal fees.

Thanks for looking!

A bump for price drops

Lordmozilla - the 9800GTX is actually a lower performing card than the 8800 Ultra... Don't get confused by Nvidia's extremely confusing naming and chip revisions.

The BFG edition of the 8800 Ultra, especially, is still very good... plus, it would be great for someone who's looking for a second 8800 Ultra to put in SLI.

I hate to thread crap but I feel a need to correct an inaccuracy in your comment regarding the performance of 9800GTX, its actually a higher performing part than 8800ultra.

And I was going to do that. Plus the 9800GTX heats up less and takes less power.... anyways take it as a free bump not an insult. I'm tempted to buy it, but really don't play games currently so there's no need and I should just wait... man that 4870 is so tempting though!

Hmm... I know they're pretty close, but depending on the application, the 8800 Ultra CAN be better (especially at very high reses). And the second link actually shows a page with 2 graphs, in which the 8800 Ultra is higher. I'm going straight by FPS here, by the way.

Anyway, I'm not trying too hard to defend it, and at $200, the 9800GTX is definitely a good deal, so I shan't argue anymore.
