Anyway, that's a bit hot for my taste... my GPU can get up to ~85C on bad days as well, so I just leave it.

I used to own a 8800gtx, they run all run that hot. When the 9000 series came out and every one was in the 40c-60c I was surprised. Thats just cause the 9000 GPU's are smaller. Your ok to overclock just dont let the temps get over 95c. Getting some new thermale paste and cleaning the card is not a bad idea. The better you take care of your hardware the longer its going to last.

that is warm. I have the same card and mine idles at 52-55c. I noticed that from what others were saying that is cool for this card. I do keep my hardware very clean and have quite the air intake system on this case. I too am wanting to try and increase my fps a bit. I am upgrading soon. Looking at a few different card from the GTX lineup. I am unfamiliar with any of the Directx11 GPUs. I am playing Battlefield 3 and MOH Warfighter. I want something that will at least be compatibal with a few future generations(as I don't want to buy another card 2014. The cards I am considering are(based off of the base stats from) Nvidiahttp://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-570/performance

GTX 570
GTX 660 TI
GTX 660
GTX 640
GTX 650
GTX 650 TI

If you will go to the link provided you will see that the 8800 GTX is basically a POS to any of these I listed. The 640 being the cheapest, but how good is it really? It isnt on the list but I am guessing it falls slightly under the 650. I have a pretzel in my head! Anyone have anything they could share with me?

Hello smile.gif .

If you want a decent card try not to get any of the following :-

GTX 640
GTX 650
GTX 650 TI

As those cards will most likely struggle with next generation demanding games such as Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light... etc and you will mostly end-up upgrading or have to sacrifice a little bit of eye candy to make those demanding games playable on those cards.
HD7850 2 GB/ GTX 660 from this generation or above are the best to serve you for many years .
For less than $200 if you check EVGA b-stock from time to time you can find GTX 480s at about $160 and they perform on par with GTX 570s but with more VRAM, mind you GTX 480 is a pretty hot card (will run constantly @ 90+C with reference cooler during load) and power hungry but it is an awesome card that can still put strong numbers thumb.gif .

GTX 480 vs GTX 570
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/306?vs=309

But If you don't mind the red camp I mostly recommend the 2 GB HD7850 as if you search well you can find them below $200 as well...

Thanks, I don't want to sacrifice too much quality, but my GTx8800 is running BF3 and MOH Warfighter on the highest setting and usualy putting out some excellent quality(MOH has an occasional hiccup during the movies) My wife is freaking over me buying a new one at all(since this one works fine). On the chart(Nvidia link above) it shows both the 640 and 650 to be double(or more) than my current configuration. You dont think they will be good enough for the future generations of games? I dont want to replace my replacement , thats for sure. Which is more important. The size of the memory vs 128bit, 192 bit, 256 bit? ddr3, ddr5? Every card has more of one and less of the rest.

The GTX 480 looks sweet. $170 is alot of money. America is **** anymore.

I have a hard time to think a GT 640 is double than 8800 GTX. GT 640 is too weak to be considered a hardcore gaming card. You can find Radeon HD7770 at about the same price and it performs much better.
GTX 650 Ti while it performs decently with current generation of games, I don't recommend that card for hardcore gaming, you can find an HD7850 1 GB at about the same price but will easily destroy it, the Radeon comes equipped with 256-bit bus-width & 32 ROPs unlike GTX 650 Ti's 128-bit & 16 ROPs.
$160-170 for a GTX 480 is a pretty damn good deal and is pretty cheap, considering about a year and a half ago it was an ultra-high-end GPU that is priced between $500-550.
GTX 480 peforms very well at that price, the price/ performance ratio is awesome the only downside is the performance vs. watts produced.
Anyways, you can find used GTX 480s in eBay for even less than that, if you want only from the green...

The best advertised 880GTX I can find is 256 bit. According to Gpuz mine is 384. Dont know how much of a difference that makes, but it will run BF# and MOH on Ultra. The Geforce BF3 chart says it should barely be able to run it(the256 bit version). I am leaning more an dmore toward the GTX 480. My 32" monitor is only capable of 720p, and my entire pc needs an upgrade before 2013 is over with, but for now I will start with a decent video card to get me by for a while.
