Gainward Bliss 8800 Ultra
Author: Matt Kemp
The 8800 Ultra is a top-of-the-line, top dollar graphics card and you get what you pay for. If you want blistering performance and bleeding edge graphics and have the screen resolution to take advantage of that then the 8800 Ultra is your card.
At £402 from SpecialTech, the 8800 Ultra isn't priced too badly, although an 8800 GTX can set you back £70 less. It's basically a matter of deciding if your budget can afford the faster clocked card or not.
The 8800 Ultra is a card that takes the top end and really takes it further, something nVidia didn't actually have to do. With this in mind I have to give the Gainward 8800 Ultra a "Editors Choice" and "Recommended" Award, albeit with a price-tag.
+ Blistering performance
+ Great looking
- Bundle could be better
Thanks to Gainward for providing the review sample
