G80 is Geforce 8800 GTX, GTS - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Yippee, now I'm almost 2 generations out of date on my GPU! (Don't even get me started on CPU...)

The 8xxx series will be the last time they can keep going up in number, there's no way ATI is going to let Nvidia make 9-series cards.

They should have done something crazy with the 8-series... Like the 88 for a dual-core/dual gpu card. And then like the quad-8 or 8888 for a quad-core/quad-gpu card. Benchmarks of the nVidia 9800GTX vs ATI 9800pro would be interesting to see

Ya but it's more complex so not good for those who aren't obsessive... *points at everyone, including himself*

I will wait for the next generation to come out so I can buy these for cheap
I can't afford to upgrade every year

I plan on snagging the 8800GTS for cheap when the 8900s come out and the prices drop. Hopefully vista will have the bugs worked out by then.

I'll be upgrading around DX10. I'm sick of getting low fps in games that are only a few years old.

X300 ftl.

DX10 Nvidia/ATI ftw.

Its much more efficient to add pipelines and shaders than it is to slap multiple cores together.

I knew those system specs sounded familiar... -looks at his case-

Ahhh yep I need something new too.

We won't know for awhile. If it is anywhere near that I will be waiting ALOT longer than I planned.

Welcome to the forums foolsgold! Fill out your system specs so if you need some help we can see what you have.

My x800GT still plays FarCry and Dark Messiah at great graphics levels and playable framerates, so I won't be upgrading any time soon. Until a game comes out I won't be able to play, period, I will keep this card.

However, by that time, I'll probably need to go Dual Core and DX10 and Vista all at one time, so I'd better start saving for Crysis and UT2007 now...
