Is there a performance difference between the 320mb GTS and the 640mb GTS?

With monitors below 1050 vertical resolution: NOPE, not at all...

At higher than 1050: Big difference


Anti-Aliasing had a big impact as well as resolution... The only difference between cards is the amount of memory which is needed for rendering big amounts of pixels... the GPU can handle it, but there isn't enough bandwith... essentially, the GTS 320MB is bottlenecked by the amount of bandwidth.

Ig you have a monitor like the Dell 22" with 1680 x 1050 you'll be able to max out 90% of games out there and still get amazing frame-rates with the GTS 320MB... So if you are looking for a gorgeous picture for gaming and want to spend as little as possible for it, I believe the best bang for your buck is a 320MB GTS and a 22" 1050 vertical...

BTW: If you go with EVGA you will get the chance to step-up to a higher card of your choice within 90 days by paying only the difference between what you payed and what the EVGA site has the higher card for...

Thanks for the information man. I'm actually only using 1 19'' LCD at the moment, so the 320mb will do just fine.

Say, later down the line, I want to play Quake 4 on Ultra. Would getting another 320 GTS be okay for this? (I'm speaking of SLIing them of course)

What matters is the amount of total pixels... what is your 19" count?

Chances are you will be better off buying a 320MB and by the time you need to get higher performance you might want to consider selling it and buying a GTX... I am not a fan of SLI... it complicates things, adds heat, and you get almost nothing out of what the second card has to offer... You might even be able to play all games full rez for a few years with the GTS if you keep your monitor... what's the pixel count?

Not sure exactly, how would I tell that?

Here's the monitor I have:

In the SPECS just look at the amount of pixels that compose your screen which you can figure out by multiplying the horizontal count by the vertical count..

1280 x 1024 = 1,310,720

My 22" Dells are 1680 x 1050 = 1,764,000 and I can max out Call of Duty 2 all the way with a GTS 320MB, everything all the way up... and I still get decent (great!!!) frame-rates. (with my current CPU: an E6300 at 3.15GHz)

The GPU from the 8800GTS's are all the same... the 640MBs and the 320MB really only differ in the amount of memory they put on the card which is available for the GPU to use... think of it this way... the RAM is random access memory which basically is used to hold info momentarily... when you do a math problem you have to figure out things in steps, and you hold the results in your head while you process other parts of the problem, then you use the first result and the second one and you put those together... when you render a picture that is bigger (higher pixel count) you are rendering more pixels... so there are a ton more numbers that need to be momentarily held... and while the processor is fast enough to make all the calculations, there isn't enough memory to hold the info, so the GPU can only go as fast as the memory can go... more memory then allows for the GPU to operate at it's max speed, and it is fast enough create the 3D environment and render a 1920 x 1200 = 2,304,000 pixel picture at a rate of about 30fps in your average high end game...

I think that the 640MB are going to be a good deal once they drop an other 50 bucks... but if you will be asking the Card to render 1,310,720 pixels per frame... then my personal guess is that you'll be good (as in EXCELLENT) for at least two years with the 320MB version...

BTW, 700:1 is a great contrast ratio! Seems like a killer 19"

I"m goin to be getting an 8800 in a day or two, and I'm not sure what to buy....

A) I don't wana blow a truck load of cash so I'm going to get a GTS
B) I don't wana get screwed when DX10 comes out, so maybe the 640MB is the better card to get
C) What company should I go for? evga? BFG? price is obviously a factor, but so is performace and warrenty!

thnx!

The GTS640 IMO will serve you better in the future also due to future released games that may indeed utilize the extra memory.

XFX is also another company to consider . IMO XFX come second to EVGA.
