I am looking foward to purchasing this card but can't find it any cheaper than £176.19 inc. VAT (click here )
I was wondering firstly can I get cheaper anywhere else online(UK only) and if its a good card for my £180 budget. Thanks in advance!

The 8800gt is meant to be not too shabby either and considering how much cheaper it is it does seem to me to be better value for money.
This also might be worth a read click here depending on the processor you have you might not see the full benefit of this card.

I am going for this set up:
GFX - nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 512MB PCI-E
RAM- Corsair 4GB PC2-6400 C5 DHX (2x2GB)
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad - Q6600 - 95W G0 stepping - OEM (no fan/cooler)
CPU Fan - Akasa AK-965 Intel 92mm Heatpipe Cooler (775)
Hard Drive - 320GB Seagate Barracuda SATA2 16MB

Will that CPU get full performance from my GFX card?

thanks alot for that link mate. Seems I could save £25-30 by getting the 8800GT. Seeing as there is little difference in the peformance it could be a good choice.

Thanks again mate,

there is quite a difference betwrrn the gt and the new gts, if your monitor is under 22" the gts beats the 768mb gtx click here
