8800GT (256MB) or 8800GS? - Page 2

post #11 of 74
Whichever GPU you do choose, itd prob bottle neck your sig rig. I suggest you get an EVGA 8800GS offa new egg ($100 ones). They run cool, fans are quie, and overclock all better than the xfx version. I'm running 740/1100 stable atm.

MIR's are really where it's at on 9600GT, unfortunately, because WITH MIR, they're the best deal in the flipping world right now. Newegg has one for under $120 after MIR. I'd take the GS.

I have a 8800 GT 256MB myself, and I love it. Since it was for a budget build, which runs on an ancient 1024 by 768 LCD, I can play Crysis at over 30 FPS with fan at 100% 24/7 (EVGA doesn't mind that), which isn't impressive when compared to other cards, but for it's price range it is nuts. NrGx is right, it's resolution dependent, as when you break 256 MB things will get ugly (literally and figuratively )

Isn't there an incoming price drop on the 9600GT? Or is it already in effect?

My resolution is only 1024x768 and I do not plan on upgrading my monitor anytime soon.

How hard would it be to wait and save another $50 before buying. Save up some more and just get the GT

X2 In the benchmarks I've seen its close between the 2 with no AA up to 1440x900. Enable AA and a higher res and the 256 shows it's weaker by a good margin. IIRC the benchmarks from crysis @ 1680x1050 16xAA was 2 FPS for the 256 and 19 FPS for the 512.

Because spending that much money on a video card is stupid (unless you have the money) to me at least.

His sig says he's got a 15" LCD. So he's probably gaming at 1024x768 or 1280x1024. I don't know much about the lower-grade cards, but if you're spending over $100 on one, why not spend another $10 and get a nice 9600gt which is more future-proof?
