8800GT vs. 8800GTS (G92) - Page 2

post #11 of 14
8800GTS... not to mention it has more Stream Processors, which will come in handy if you don't like to upgrade constantly

I have purchased both from XFX. I am a big gamer and love FPS's i play crysis and COD4 alot. I first bought the 8800GTS G92 and 3 days later it started pink screening on me after a few hours into game play! Tiger Direct gave me the hardest time RMA'ing the item but after weeks of waiting i got my money back and at that time i payed 349 for it. I looked it up and did some research on the item and alot of people seem to have this problem with the GTS 512mg G92 platform this was confirmed by XFX support guy name William. I play my games at max setting in every game and if the card can't handle it i get a new one. After the GTS went bad on me I bought the 8800 GT standard clock and put a after market cooler on it and this thing rips. I saved 150 bucks buying this thing at that time and i am happy i did it. I play all the games at the same rez and setting as i did with the GTS and it performs like a dream and my Frame Rate has not changed. 8800 GT for the WIN you will not be upset with this purchase. And the brand i chose for the 8800 GT was also XFX and it clocks like crazy and is working great. If you want i have some benchmark results between the two with my setup below with stock speeds and some overclock speeds just PM me and i can get them for ya. I was shocked

As the OP pointed out the difference between the two cards is ~$50 w/ or w/o MIR...

So what does + $50 get you?

http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=544&card2=548

1) Superior dual slot cooler that exhausts a large portion of the heat generated, unlike the 8800gt(Except the new Akimbo from EVGA)
2) 16 extra stream processors (check out GPUReview link to help quantify the significance)
3) Increased core voltage which in conjunction w/ the dual slot cooler = greater OC potential(check out my sig )

IMHO the benefits more than justify the extra $50...

honestly, if you dont care about the 50 bucks do whatever you want with it..but after having gone through a few generations of the highest end card available at a certain time..you come to realize they will all be outdated at the same time anyways..if some new crysis like game comes out..its not like the difference between the two cards will be playable and not playable..they'll both be unplayable..so decide for yourself, spend the extra 50 so you can i guess say you have a faster card (by a marginal amount) or keep it
