256mb edition. Where does it stands against the Nvidia cards?

Will it be close to the 8800 GTS 320mb? I couldn't really find any trusted reviews...

Getting it for dirt cheap.

Thnx

Eh, it's a cheap card. I wouldn't get the 512MB cards cut down to 256MB. 8800GT anyone?

I'm not sure about it, it's not exactly popular.

I would guess that its closest Nvidia competitor would be the 8600GTS. Depending on how cheap you're getting it, it's not necessarily a bad card. I'm running one now but I got it with the intention that it would only hold me over until I can get a 4870. Doesn't have trouble with anything I play, but I'm not playing anything too demanding at the moment.

no way the 3850 is 2x fast as the 8800GTS you can compare it to the 8800GS

Well it's probably better than an 8600GT(S) or 7900GS/T but I don't know if it can match up against anything better (not even the old 320mb 8800GT's).
