Is it worth upgrading my 8800gt - Page 2

post #11 of 19
A GTX 470 at stock will beat the 8800GT by x2.5 most of the the time. The 470 scales well when overclocking also; get it up to 800c/1600s and you're going to see a tremendous gain.

Omg yes you should upgrade to a 470 or above!

And, q6600 at 3.0ghz is enough for a gtx470. The only real difference between my q6600 and my i7 950 was like 500 points in vantage, in games they were practically the same.

Goodluck

Great Link and love the posts. Most funny. I want to upgrade my whole system but would want to be able to get rid of my old system. I think someone should love my old mbd ram cpu video card for a decent price. Any suggestions for selling point for 8 gigs G.Skill- P5K-E mbd - Q6600 at 3.4ghz with Tuniq Tower and 8800GT overclocked with Accelero fan on it? Anyone want them?

I am afraid of the GTX460 due to my Power supply but it was the best at the time. Will it be fine for either cards and even overclocking?

Yes, your power supply will easily handle any single card on the market.
