8800GT vs. G92 8800GTS 512mb - Page 2

post #11 of 26
I'm selling a pair of BFG 8800GTS OC for $360.

(Only because the plan is to go TRI-SLI)

I owned 8800GT in sli prior and the GTS is worth the investment. Better cooling, better stock speeds, better overclocking potential.

Hows Zotacs warranty, or their RMA process? I really like EVGA and their lifetime warranty that covers watercooling and overclocking. I don't want to go SLI (have an X38 mobo), so it will be a single card solution no matter which way I go. I'm selling my old 939 parts to someone and I'm going to sell my current X1950XT with them so I kinda need a replacement now. I agree that $100 for about 10-15% performance doesn't add up in my book. This is the Gt I was looking at: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130359 , it's on sale today for $159, and this has the dual slot cooler so I'm not worried about air int he case. So if the Zotac is good as far as quality and warranty/RMA goes I may jump that way. I've never ordered from fxvideocards.com before, how are they?

Yeah and in this respect, even if you got the akimbo version of the GT from eVGA (dual slot cooler) you might as well get the GTS for the same price. So I say 8800GTS.

LOL if you're going for XFX or EVGA GTS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500037

u might as well get the Zoltak 98000GTX (G92) for $269 now that is a performance boost worth the money.

There has to be a catch to this. Either horrible support or quality or something.

If its too good to be true then it probably is.

Yeah, I saw the fx site, too. Something didn't feel right buying the zotac card, no matter the deal..

Might be my loss though, I just figure I'll stick with the egg for the support, and I've never had problems.

9800GTX and 8800GTS are almost the same card. They're both G92. They have the same number of stream processors, and you can easily achieve the 9800GTX's stock settings on a 8800GTS by OC'ing a little. So the only thing actual difference is that the 9800GTX has a little more memory bandwidth, and a slightly higher texture fill rate.

If you don't want to OC, or those reasons are good enough to spend the extra cash then go for the 9800GTX. Otherwise I would say go with the 8800GTS, that's what I'm putting in my new rig and after the prices drop I'll be going SLI.

But yeah, like Dreko said, if you can wait until the prices drop do that and then go SLI.

look at this though http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...429&CatId=3670

BFG is now cheaper than the 8800gts

bad reviews of it from new egg though Supposedly BFG is getting cards that have been returned through warranty and have been reparing them and selling them for brand new.
