@ 2.33ghz? You'll choke both cards.

Best bet is to get the GTX, switch to an E6600 or Q6600 (in July 22nd). The E6600 at 3.0ghz should keep up with the GTX.

Ultra would be nice "if" you had a Q6600 minimum already.

So, I'd also say GTX (and throw in an E6600 to keep up).

As I've said before, the only reason the Ultra is able to run at higher clocks is because the PCB is optimised to cope with higher vCore flowing through it. This can easily be accomplished on a stock GTX after volt mods. The only part of the Ultra that is different to the GTX is the stock cooler. However, most keen overclockers make use of an aftermarket cooler, or turn to water, after they breach 700Mhz on the Core.

As for power requirements, the Ultra version actually uses more power than the GTX, though this is down to the higher voltage requirements of the card. I'll also point out that even the Ultra requires less power than the X2900XT. Only people who are after peak performance, without volt modding, should consider an Ultra in my opinion.

You can get GTX for $480 after MIR only
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127281

Or Ultra for $580 after MIR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127288

Both are factory overclocked and you would get a free copy of Company Of Heroes with them

I was just waiting for the first person to say that.

As for these crazy $600 Ultras thats insane! Mine were $1000 EACH

I'd go with the ultra. The reason I don't have ultras is because I bought the GTXs before the ultra exsisted.

5-15FPS performance gain is worth $100 IMHO. But it depends on the person.

Buy a GTX and a Thermalright HR-03 Plus. And you have yourself a video card that can overclock high as an Ultra or higher, and cools better than an Ultra..

Problem Fixed, np yw.

Both versions of GeForce 8800 GTS slow down in 1600x1200, so you should better use 1280x1024 if you’ve got one of them.
