Hello Gerry,

Haven't got one myself (yet ;) ) but I installed one on monday, a 8800GTX no less (under 400 pounds from dabs)

All I will say is that Its STUNNING, I've been looking at comparison charts, the 6600GT gives 92 million vertices's a second, the the 8800GTX gives 3.6BILLION.
In FSX with 3 IRIS F-14 Tomcats on screen FPS was 18 with the 6600GT, with the 8800GTX it was 45 with 6 tomcats on screen.

BUT you need AT LEAST 600 Watts coming out of your PSU, 2 free IDE sockets and plenty of cooling power. But boy is it a beast ;) oh and 1gb of ram too, it uses it as swap storage or summat!
