8800GTS or 8800GTX? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
If you can, Get the GTX, and overclock it. It will be better in the short and the long run!

Well for now I'll be using it on a 22" lcd at 1680 x 1050. But I will likely be upgrading to a 1080p LCD within the year, so 1920x1080 is what I would like to run ultimately.

If he really needed the $137, he wouldn't even have to ask.

1080p merits a GTX

the GTS would probably get about 50fps at 1920x1080 on f.e.a.r. with all the eye candy on, GTX about 70...........and that game is gettin old

As I write this I'm running at 1920x1200 on a Geforce 6800 ultra and with almost all settings maxed (except ansitropic) and 4x AA, I get 40-50fps in WoW. Why would a 8800gts 640mb not do over 50 at 1920x1080?

I;ve looked at a billion benchmarks because i'm in the same boat, but i am looking to step mine up to either one of the cards. When you look at comparisons in performance in these DX10 "patched" games, all our cards have been getting owned, but, lets say for example we have Lost Planet in DX10 at 1280x1024 with everything maxed, except for shadows and AA.

When you are running damanding games like this, extra performance does make quite a difference. Here at 1280x1024, the GTX is getting 12fps more than the GTS, but its only getting 42fps (mind you these are older drivers), so this means that the GTS is dipping down low when it does, and IMO 12fps at these low fps can make a pretty massive difference.

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3029&p=5

Those extra stream processors are proving to make quite a decent difference and if you are fond of eye candy at 1680x1050 then i;d suggest the GTX. You can do a simple bios flash to an OC version and get ultra speeds and getting almost 20fps more than the stock gts and still only gettign 50fps. Games like crysis will be well optimized but I have a feeling the frame rates we will be getting at high settings will be similar to this and that extra boost will come in quite handy.

you might not agree, but i'm convincing myself of this and getting the GTX in a month or so. I think you could agree that for $137 and getting 18fps+ on demanding games is not such a steep price to pay considering the price you pay extra for 200mhz on CPUs. that's my take on it.

Ya i can do that too but it dosent realy matter the GTX has 128 proseccors and the GTS has 92 or 98 (i cant rember)making the GTX a lot faster.

if you go to this link here
http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....474&card2=475#

You will so that you need a 775MHz GPU speed to overcome the GTX in all factors and to get close to it you will nedd at least a 660MHz GTS as well as the 2200MHz on the memory to get you that 86.4GB/s transfer rate .
As that is to beat a stock GTX now a GTX is not a waste of money comparded to the GTS but the ultra is.

Good point murcielago, if the FPS difference in high end DX10 games is 12fps, at 42fps you can't afford to lose that.

How much would an SLI GTX setup bump the fps in these DX10 games then? Surely it would not double?
