Im about to order a new video card. Help me decide.

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Well I have some cash saved up. And I want to replace my 7600gt. Its starting to really show its age. Anyways Im either going to want a 8800gs or a 8800gt. I want to spend the lease as possible. I run 1024x768 res so would the 8800gs max games out on these crappy reses? Or would I need the GT? About how much of a difference would I notice beetweene a 8800gs and a 8800gt?

8800gs should be good for anything on 1024x768

crysis would probably run on high lol... i think you need a new monitor more than a gpu

i used to have a 17 inch LG that did 1280 x 1024 and i never felt like i needed to upgrade gpu (crysis wasn't out yet, i had cod4 demo) but now i play on my 42 inch lg at 1920x1080 and my 7900gs is begging to be upgraded lol

I would save up some more, sell your 7600GT and get a 9xxx series.

only thing that would be iffy is crysis... other than that 8800 gs is overkill...

do you play crysis? or plan to?

if you can stand to have a low framerate for the 5-6 hours max it takes to beat crysis i say get the 8800gs

Eh I wont really buy crysis. I would probably buy COD 4 and portal before crysis. And Im really into red orchestra right now. So I probably wont play crysis for a long time if ever.

Here is link that shows some differences between GS and GT.
http://en.expreview.com/?p=160
Don't waht type of game you are playing. GS should be fine for 1024X768. GT's price drops about $200 and there is only $40 to $50 difference so may get a GT for a long run.

8800GS will work easily on high in crysis at that resolution,but i would really have a 512 card to be able to play newer games.
