XFX 8800GT vs Palit GTS250 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Go with the GTS 250.. I had both a 9800gt, an 8800gt and a 9800gtx+(essentially a gts250). You'll see about a 25% increase in performance... But that's not the only reason you should get it . The 8800gt/9800gt's don't really yield any performance when overclocked, as where with the 250, you'll definitely see gains. Around 2fps with an average OC in Crysis, which is actually quite a bit of extra umph....

Aaaalso, to a few individuals...

Just because it has 12 more shaders doesn't mean it's only going to yield minor improvement, the gts 250 also has the higher memory bandwidth as well as ROPs. They all factor into the equation.

Best of luck, InF3Rnus

no, but you have more vram for higher res textures, and it should be a bit quieter.

Granted clock for clock a GTS 250 will outperform an 8800GT. It's obvious that two cards using what is essentially the same core, nevermind the deficiencies, the higher clocked of the two with outperform the other.
Both cards show proportionate increases in performance when overclocked, your statement about overclocking is completely untrue. The GTS 250 has higher memory bandwidth because of it's memory clock, it still uses the same 256-bit memory bus as the 8800GT. The GTS 250 is better than the 8800GT, I won't argue there, but clock for clock the difference is less than 5%. The extra memory may make a difference in certain games, at certain resolutions but in some games it makes no difference at all. When utilized the extra 512MB of memory can make for an increase of over 10%, but if it isn't utilized the two will be side by side.
In short, get the GTS 250 .
