another 8800 thread

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what kind of CPUs everyone was running their comps with that have an 8800 or SLI 8800s.

I'm still on my FX-55 with DDR Pc3200 memory (i've been out of the game for a good year or two).

I'm trying to get back into the groove of things and pick up gaming again, what with games like UT3, Huxley, and most importantly Starcraft 2 coming out (those were the days ) I want to upgrade my system yet again for the late 2007 early 2008 series of greatness.

Enough babbling. I was wondering if I could just use the 8800 while i save up money for the ddr-ddr2 and 939-AM2 conversion. So what kind of cpus are you all using.

Welcome to Overclock dot net.

I personally would not recommend on getting ANY of the DX10 cards that are currently out. With all the demos that have been released, the DX10 cards are are running really bad. SLI GTX even performs badly.

What I would do in your position, is to wait and hold until DX10 cards and games mature, then find some benchmarks on everything, then head out and buy your components.
