post #31 of 37
A 8800GS is better than the 320MB GTS.

Just wait for the new HD4k series, not necessarily to get one, but simply because it will mean a price drop for all older cards =)

Oh, and always do your shopping on ncix.com if you're in Canada ^__^

I suppose it mostly has to do with how your 7900GTX performs on the games you usually play. It isn't incredibly long until the next gen comes out, forcing down prices on the current G92's. We are only probably talking a difference of $20 or something though, so upgrading now I would try to find either a cheap 9600GT or 8800GT. I've seen 9600GT's go as low as $125 after rebate, and that is very close to what I've seen the 320's go for.

That is why everyone is saying to get one only if you can find one super dirt cheap. The 9600GT has far less power consumption, better performance, and almost the same price. Honestly a cheap used 8800GT is your best bet IMO.

edit: I just checked newegg, and the cheapest GTS320 is going for $119 after rebate, and the cheapest 9600GT is also going for $119 after rebate, so simple choice.

There is an XFX 8800GT for $129 with no rebate, and for the extra $10 that smokes on the GTS320.

will there be a big difference between the 8 and 9 series I have heard very little performance upgrades esp. going to the 9600 not the 9800. I mean for the same price you mine as well go higher but I'm jw the extra ten dollars on the 88gt will outperform the 96gt?

9800GTX is twice the card 9600GT is.
9800GTX just has slightly faster clocks compared to the 8800GTS whilst the 8800GTS is kinda like a deep oced version of the 8800GT.

8800GT, much better than the 9600GT, worth the 10 extra dollars.

Though I heard Nvidia is cutting the driver support on the 8xxx cards early. Updated drivers will be on the 9xxx series only in the future anyway.

This is what its come down to. eVGA 9600GT or BFG 8800GT the costs are similar. What do you guys think?
