Generally benchmarks, especially game benches, are a very good indicator of real world performance.

And still 8800gtx and 660ti. Pffffffft! Haha they aren't even close no matter how you measure it. Unless you are just counting whether or not you have a video card. But then you may as well get a GT210 or something tongue.gif

I am trying to help someone make a decision, you are trying to start a fight. I build computer man, that is all I do. It is my hobby, it is my job. I have played on more videocards than I care to try to count. if you are looking at a general FPS bench, yes that has more importance to you than a graph comparing the vcards specs. But even then there are SO MANY things that can effect those numbers. From my experience, Nvidia is a better quality product. They use better components, they run smoother. I can compare an 8800 with anything I choose to. It was a beast of a vacrd on mid 2006. You can still game on one. My daughters Core2Quad pc has my old 8800 GTX OC in it, and I can play every game on it that I play on my current rig. I play allot of them on Ultra even. What do the bench's say about that? THEY SAY IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. Well it is, why, because benches only tell you so much.

Haha whatever man. I'm not trying to start a fight. I'm trying to prevent the OP from making a poor decision on a new video card. You comparing a 8800 to newer cards and saying you can play modern games on ultra isn't helping. I don't want to start a fight, I just don't want the OP to be misguided because of your weird, kinda messed up viewpoint.

This is the viewpoint you would learn, if you had you taken any kind of hardware classes. And I can play BF3 and MOH Warfighter on ultra with my 8800. You take statements about something and turn them into something that they are not. I didn't say the 8800 was superior to anything. I said it was the beast of its day and it can still hold its own, even though the numbers are against it. The fact is that numbers are just that. NUMBERS. The only one of which that matters is FPS.

Note it is not a GT model. It is a BFG 8800 GTX OC. It is doubtful a GT could play anything in high at all.

I don't believe you. No way you can play on ultra and have frames that are sufficient to actually play. Just not possible. (MAYBE if you play at like 640x480)

Anyway I'm done arguing about it. You believe what you want even if you are wrong biggrin.gif

OP good luck on finding a new card! I'm sure you will be happy with any card you pick based on these suggestions as any of them will be quite an upgrade smile.gif
