8800GTS 320 or 8800GTX - Page 3

post #21 of 40
Speaking of all of this resolution vs card, I've had this question too.

Basically:

8800GTS 320
or 8800 GTS 640?

I play at 1680 x 1050 on my 20 inch LCD.

Would I get that much more performance out of double the memory? I've heard in some cases you can actually lose performance from the 640, if the res isn't high enough.

thats only when the clockspeed of the 640 is at a lower rate than the 320. if they are clocked the same, there is no performance loss

Okay, but what about performance GAIN? at 1680 x 1050, would a 640 stock vs 320 stock give me more performance? Perhaps in the future, too?

Basically you have to ask yourself what res am I going to be gaming at, a 320Mb will ****in' fall off compared to 640 beyond 1900x1200, due to the 640Mb having more vram, whats that a 24" monitor? Do you have one? Will you be getting one? If not save yourself the cash and get the 320Mb, the peformance differance upto 1900x1200 between the 320 and the 640 is minimal if not non existent..

Heres a comparsion for your.

My Rig:
E6600 3.33GHZ
P5N-E SLi 650i
2GB DDR2-900 CAS5-2T
320Mb XFX 8800GTS XXX 614/2020

3DMark06 = 10888

Friends Rig:
E6600 3.33GHZ
Striker Extreme 680i
2GB DDR2-900 CAS5-2t
768Mb XFX 8800GTX XXX 640/2200

3DMark06 = 11747

3DMark06 run at default settings at 1280x1024, save the cash.

For the price/performance ratio and your resolution, I think the GTX is overkill, especially because it hasn't even been put through its paces with true DX10. The 320 vs 640 is more of a decision. Since the prices are falling (and talks of more soon) the difference between prices is going to continue to reduce, to where a 320 is hardly a few mcdonalds meals away from a 640. And it may only give you ~500 points on 3dmark, but put it this way: future games coming out won't be aiming to use less memory. We're already seeing some (albeit at higher res) that are sucking the ram dry on some smaller vid cards. Might not be a bad idea to just go for the 640 now and futureproof yourself a bit more, especially since you were initially considering a GTX.
It's about time!

320 GTS REALLY couldn't keep up with a GTX, but buy the GTS and another monitor, because your just wasting all it's power
post #30 of 40
Gtx will win, but gts is a super value for like 250, if you want get 2 and sli them, they will beat a gtx by a very nice margin, they are still cheaper just not much room for expansion, and less ram
