Which type of 8800 GT

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy a 8800 GT and upgrade from my current x1900xtx. I have found several that appeal to me, but i am not sure which card is the best. I would love some of your input as im sure you know more than me.

i would even consider getting this one also:

Which of those cards do you think would be the best card for the best price? Thanks for the help.

EVGA or XFX all the way, although the 8800GTS would offer the best performance

EVGA is great, they have a good step up program and are good at handling warranties and RMA's in my experience.

I have the MSI 8800 GT OC and I have been pretty happy with it. Performs well and is priced nice.

If you have the money, definitely get the GTS. If you're gonna get a GT, I would go with the MSI because of its cooler but if you think you might be upgrading anytime soon, go with the evga for step-up.

do you think it would be a good idea to get the evga 8800 gt, sell my x1900xtx, then stepup to a 8800 gts or gtx with the money from the 1900 sale?
post #9 of 15
They are all G92 so pick evga to take advantage of its setup program. Also, xfx has pretty warranty. Typically, don't get OC version unless the price is about the same. You can use tools such as Rivatuner to OC it. If you can sell x1900, go for G92 8800GTS setup.
