8500GT... good enough? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
For a couple bucks you can get the 8600GTS its better than the GT.If you really want a card that runs games pretty damn high than get the 8600GTS.

Thanks Anth!

I will go with the GTS then. I'm reading that those are pretty easy to OC? I'm VERY new to the whole OCing thing, but trying to learn quickly. I assume that eventually it would be worth getting a second one for SLi, right?

Yep two 8600GTS Sli would be really good and peform way better than just one.Im not sure if you need a bigger PowerSupply though to run Sli maybe.

I've got a 600w power supply in my other case that I plan on taking and using on this 'trial' computer. So hopefully that will power everything well. I'm just reading around on all this stuff, and while it's really layed out great, and there's so much information... there's SO MUCH information!! I'm going on brain overload when I start trying to comprehend all the vcores, and OCing RAM, all this stuff. But I'm trying to get it all. So far everyone here has been super helpful.

Thank you all

-Mark
