NVIDIA is offering a neato bargain in its 8800 GT. There are plenty of good reviews on this video processor, but what catches our eye the most is its price tag.

Ranging from $199 to $259, this part of the GeForce 8 series offers serious bang for your bucks. It’s well worth the extra juice if you plan on gaming. NVIDIA says they will play nice with the most recent DirectX10 games including “Crysis,” “Hellgate: London,” and “Gears of War,” as well as support for the current DirectX 9 games.

The 8800 GT features 112 stream processors at 1.5GHz and a 256-bit memory interface running at 900MHz. Another bonus is the company’s PureVideo HD technology, which delivers great graphics on HD DVD and Blu-ray movies on the PC.

The programmable video processing engine takes on high definition H.264 video decoding, freeing up the CPU to perform other tasks and reduced power consumption, heat, and noise.

The GeForce 8800 GT is available now. You don’t have to wrestle one away from a flock of frothing gamers; check out NVIDIA’s website for info on where to buy one.
