Save the money - get an 8600 GTS. It runs pretty much all the games that are currently out on very good settings, and it is DX 10 capable. Plus, I'd be worried sticking an 8800 GTS on that power supply - Aspire is not known for reliability on high loads.

Firstly buddy, why don't you own one before you flame it?

NewEgg reviews........come on, I thought OCN would have taught you better than that................

I GUESS, 320MB will limit you in resolution or unrealistic levels of AA , but I run at 1680x1050 with 16x AF and 2-4xAA on all my games and experience 0 problems. Anyways, anybody who has the dough for a monitor than can push a higher resolution than that, or has 2+ monitors can very likely afford a GTX.....



My personal opinion, get an eVGA 8800GTS320 for $260 in one month. I'd then either step-up to an 9800GTS or just sell it and get . IMHO, the 640 just isnt worth 100 bucks, I think you should save the money and re-invest it in a next generation card, thats my plan.

If you have the extra money then get the 640mb version. But I don't think its needed. Really depends on what resolution you run on your monitor. Higher than say 1440x900 for a widescreen or 1280x1024 for a normal screen, then get the 640mb version. At those resolutions and lower the 320mb will do fine.

My
huh, i heard that u can run 1680x1050 pretty good on the 320mb, ya im planning on upgrading my 7600GT to something more fitting since i have vista, and im leaning towards the 8800GTS 320mb for its price, but i have a 22" acer widescreen monitor so should i get the 320mb or the 640mb

LOL @ trusting Newegg reviews.


The 320 is plenty powerful for resolutions at or below 1600 x 1200 or so.
