I pull off about 30-40fps all high on XP at 1280x1024 with One card. I will see how 2 does when the other gets here.

Vista is a different story.

For a $120 card, that's a pretty sweet deal IMO.

I would go for the 8800GS. Its way better and it uses way less power than the 8800GTS 320MB.

Give $110 8800GS a thought. New core and cooler.
post #16 of 36
its the old 320mb...remember these have been out a long time, plus NO ONE want to buy them when you can get a GT ot GTS 512. At 120 its a steal, still.

No it isnt. It would smoke it hands down. The GS is a POS card IMO.

The 8800GS has a higher shader and core clock, more than 2x the texture fillrate, a better architecture, and uses less power

The only thing the GTS (G80) has over the GS is the 320-bit mem bus and a higher memory bandwidth
