One of the best video card purchases that I had made has to have been the 8800 GT. It was the first card that I took the time to do research on and compared the performance with other video cards. At that time I was deep into gaming so performance was crucial. I had also just started working a new job where I was making more money. I had a little extra cash to spare. It seemed to be perfect timing. The 8800 GT was an anomaly in the NVIDIA lineup because it was released cheaper then their previously released 8800 GTS, and also beat it in performance. The 8800 GT was so good that it rivaled the 8800 GTX is many games. Those with lucky cards were able to flash the BIOS and unlock some extra shaders to make it almost equal to the 8800 GTX. The 8800 GT lasted me 3 years. My next upgrade after that was the GTX 270.
