CompUSA 320MB GeForce Card

CompUSA has inadvertently pre-announced NVIDIA's first mid-range card based on the GeForce 8800 chipset. The BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC has all the features of the GTS released in November but halves the memory to 320MB, significantly dropping the price. Card maker BFG's implementation compensates for the loss in performance, according to the slip on the retailer's page: the core speed jumps to 550MHz through a factory overclock, far higher than the 500MHz stock speed of the normal 640MB model.

BFG's card is currently scheduled to launch on February 17th at a price of $350. It remains unclear as to whether or not cards from BFG and other companies released using stock speeds will cost less.
