How much improvement can i get with 8800 gt on 3dmark06?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
MY current 3dmark06 score with QUAD 6600 3.5 and 8800 GTS 640MB 630/1000
if i get 8800gt 512mb how much 3dmakr06 point would increase over my current gpu?

about 3000... maybe a little more. But you should be able to get more out of your current card though... 630 isn't much of an overclock.

Not worth the upgrade, unless your gaming performance really disappoints you.

Personally, I'd wait for the next generation. The 8800GTS 640MB is still a very capable card.

Score would be more like 15/16k with a 512Mb GTS.

The next cards come out a lot sooner than a year. Esp. ATI has promising cards lined up that are supposedly not going to be too expensive.

I'd wait.

In all honesty gaming wise you won't see much of an increase in performance (10-15%) so for the extra moolah you have to shell out it really isn't worth it. 3DMark06 means squat when it comes to real game performance. Keep the GTS 640, it's still a great card
