Since we checked ATI's significant price drops it would be only fair if we do the same for Nvidia. Nvidia also decided to drop Geforce 8800
MSI's MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC, GeForce 8800 GT with 512MB GDDR3 and 660MHz core and 1900MHz memory speed is available and in stock for €199.
This is the cheapest price we could find. You can get it here.
Gainward is at the same time offering Gainward BLISS GeForce 8800 GS with 384MB GDDR3 at 575MHz core and 1700Mhz memory speed and 1375MHz Shader speed for €131. This 192 bit card is currently in stock.
These are prime examples that great graphics don't have to cost an arm and a leg, but there is a chance that 9600GT might be faster than 8800GS, but it is certainly slower and lower priced than the 8800GT.
You can buy Gainward's 8800GS Bliss here.
