Where is this 7800 GTOC presently? It sounds like a nice computer card for a server I have.

I found a FX5600 laying around my closet that im going to drop into a p4 3.0 im slapping together..

as for selling the 7800 gTOC, i doubt i could get enough to make it worth mywhile. i would rather keep it and have a 2nd machine ppl could play a game on if they came over.

the irony.. i give away 2 of them.. and THEN my fuckin server dies... but i was able to salvage parts from 2 busted Dell 1950s.. i have 2 3.2G p4 Xeons and 4 gig of ram to go into the new system once my board arives. risk. do you perchance need any PCE IDE Raid controllers? i have a box full of 3ware 7504LPs wasting space..i also have some adaptec SCSI cards i need to get rid off. cant remember the model number

The 8800 isnt all that much faster than a good 7900 sli setup in todays games.I have owned 2x 7900gtx's ,2 7950gt's,and 2 8800gtx's.Most of it depends on what the pc built around it is. Its fairly easy to bottleneck a gpu.

buddy of mine just left.. he has 2x7950s in sLI

his 2 VS my 8800GTX.. Close. it took BOTH of his cards to match the performance of my one card. He would slightly edge me out on same tests.
1 card VS 1 card. no comparison.. my single 8800 TOASTED his.
as a matter of fact.. our tests where almost identically resultant to this link.

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2870&p=22

he has a Faster over all system them me though.

BTW he wasnt happy that his 2 cards that recently cost double what my single card did couldnt outperform my single card really irritated him.

White Lightning - if you have some spare HDD (size not important) I'd throw some bones your way. I think the 40G in my HTPC is going out; its a no frills box.

Thanks!

those new DVD-Rs IDE or SATA?

the ones i bought are IDE.. they seemed a little cheaper then the sata and realistically SATA offered no advantage to me on these boxes.

I need some cheap RAM, another harddrive, power supply, and video card just so I can play Flight Sim X. Want to donate any of these items?

At the rate I'm upgrading, Flight Sim XX will be out by the time I get 1gig total RAM.
