You can overclock to get those extra MHz but you can't add Stream Processors. I would say go for the GTS since you have already narrowed it down to these two cards. I haven't experienced any problems with my GTS and I love it.

I prefer EVGA/XFX/BFG simply because of their warranties. I would hate to spend $200+ for a card which fails after warranty expires. I would rather pay the extra money to get a card with good warranty than a card with a 1 year warranty. just my

Now what is the failure rate of that video card? Looking at the newegg reviews, the chances of gettin one are pretty slim. Thats not counting the fact that people who dont write reviews. If they need an RMA, theyll make sure to write one, but if its fine, most plp dont even bother writing reviews (like myself)

I think i'd rather stick to a more known brand as exile mentioned.

Also anyone with personal experience between these two? Did anyone but the GTS and think it was just complete overkill and wished they had saved the extra money? Or anyone who went with the GT and didn't think it was enough and wished they had spent the extra dollars?

"I am quite happy with my 8800GT SC Edition from EVGA, it is stable, comes pre-overclocked, and it actually a noticeable improvement over my older 8800GTS (640MB). It runs all my games flawlessly."

"Also when the next nVidia cards come out I will be using their "Step-Up" program, for sure!"

GTS isnt worth 60 bucks more imo., if anything drop an extra 80 or w.e for the 9800GTX

I'm wondering if pocketing that $50 and saving it for the step-up program later down the road would be the best idea? Does it run like Age of Conan / Crysis on high or maxed out @ 1680 x 1050? Ever see it struggle at all?
