how long till 8800gt runs out of puff? - Page 4

post #31 of 35
not sure about DFI, but supposedly, they overclock well.

I say go with either gigabyte or ASUS.

I prefer ASUS because thier repair depot is close to where i Live and I get quick responses from them.

About the 8800GT. I think its a decent card that will future proof you for a while. that is it will allow you to play games for some time until the next big graphical intensive game will come out. This years graphical intensive game was crysis. It was the driving factor for everyone to purchase the next powerhorse video card.

IMHO if you can run crysis, then you can run most games that will come out for the next year.

Never owned DFI, but a lot of people on OCN seem to like them because they overclock well.

My NVIDIA 650i has my chip running at 3.4ghz.
