okay i think im gonna upgrade my graphics card. ive narrowed my choices down to either the 8800gt or the 8800gts 512. ive found an 8800gt for $135 and an 8800gts 512 for $170. basically i just want to know if you guys think the price jump is worth the performance jump. which one would you buy?

It's worth it. You get a dual-slot cooler, more SP's, WAY higher probable memory speeds (2.2GHz for me), higher core clock speeds (800MHz+ is common), and shader clocks (1900MHz+ is not uncommon). GET IT SON.

ive been thinking that was the way to go. the first reviews i looked at basically said there was almost no difference but the more i look at the bigger the gap seems to get. i think ill go for the gts unless someone can come up with a good reason not to

Yup absolutely. EVGA offers an AKIMBO version of the 8800GT with the same dual-slot cooler as the G92 GTS but I don't think it's much cheaper, if at all, than the 8800GTS G92.

The GTS overclocks much better than the GT. I say the extra price is worth it.

  1. 1) Its an amazing card and
  2. 2) The GT gets rather hot when you bump settings in games up to high and play them for a while
