Step-Up to a 8800GTS from a 8800GT?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Hello,

My Step-Up window for my evga 8800 GT is expiring within 7 days.

Is the 8800 GTS a worthy step-up? From the specs, it looks as though the differences between the two cards is that the GTS has 128 stream processors compared to the GT with 112 stream processors. That, in addition to higher clocks on the GTS, but I'm sure I could overclock to GTS clocks.

The total for the step-up would cost about $80.00 including shipping.

So, any advice for me? 16 stream processors and slightly higher clocks worth $80.00?

Thanks for any advice.

I dont think its worth it. I would wait to see what the 9800 are like before thinking about upgrading.

The GTS 512Mb (G92 core) is definitely a much better card. If it was me, I would do the stepup.

The card has more advantages then that. When OCed, it is performing close to a GTX and Ultra. But it does come down to personal preference...

Now that I think about it, I would probably have to spend around $120.00 for the step-up (including shipping and 3rd party cooler).

Here is a comparison chart to give you some info on the card (Hope it helps):

Given the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB’s outstanding performance though, this higher price tag is definitely justified. The 8800 GTS 512MB cards blazed through all of our benchmarks, with performance generally falling anywhere between the GeForce 8800 GT and the GeForce 8800 GTX, while a card that’s been overclocked can put up numbers that are higher than the GTX in some cases.
