Everyone loves the GeForce 8800GT!

Just because nVIDIA and AMD were bed buddies for a few years doesn't mean the graphics boys will cut AMD any slack.

Business is business, and with AMD now in the GPU biz, nVidia has released its killer shark, the GeForce 8800GT. This new GPU kicks the crap out of everything else in the high end market when it comes to value!

It's a shame that the various videocard manufacturers can't ramp up manufacturing of GeForce 8800GT videocards because these things are definitely in high demand by consumers. If you need a new videocard, set your sights on a Geforce 8800GT.

MSI has quite an enthusiast spirit and is willing to overclock just about anything. Its NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC PCI Express x16 videocard comes with its core and memory speeds clocked higher than the nVIDIA specification (660/1900MHz vs 600/1800MHz core/memory). It's no surprise that the MSI Computer NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC is one of the fastest GeForce 8800GT videocards on the market.

With a retail price of $324 CDN ($330 USD, £161 GBP), the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC goes for about half what high end nVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX videocards retail for. Yet, as you saw in the benchmarks this graphics card will give you at least 90% of the performance. The NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC does not come with any goodies in the box, so if you're looking for a new DirectX 10 title to play on it better grab something from the store.

The MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC videocard was impressive in every test PCSTATS tossed its way; from the awesome FEAR or Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory tests to Lost Planet and Quake 4. Throughout testing, the NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC was hot on the heels of the GeForce 8800GTX and that's definitely an impressive feat.

MSI overclocks its NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC by default so there's not much headroom left for enthusiasts. With the videocard overclocked 3D performance got a moderate performance boost, but realistically speaking this videocard can handle any game you throw at it as is.

If you're upgrading your system, there is no videocard on the market that packs as much value as the nVIDIA GeForce 8800GT currently. It's definitely worthy of all the hype that surrounds it, and trust me, it's worth the search to find one of these videocards! MSI has made the NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC into a real beauty by overclocking the card fresh from the factory. Good value, great performance, recommended.
