GeForce GT430 or used GeForce 8800

My Nvidia GeForce 8800 just went out yesterday. I am deciding between replacing it with the same card offered used on ebay :

http://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-NVIDIA-GEFORCE-8800-GTS-512MB-VIDEO-GRAPHICS-CARD-512-P3-N841-AR-/171251797850?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item27df670f5a

or a new card, Galaxy GeForce GT 430 1 GB GDDR3

I mainly play Diablo 3, will I notice a reduction in graphics with the GT430?

  1. it depends on how much the used card has been used. ask the seller that, and if it is less than about 2 years, take it. if its over about 2 years, it probly only has a couple years left anyways. hope this helps!

    According to this:

    the GT430 is 4 tiers lower performing than the 8800GTS. That should lead to a noticeable drop in performance. YMMV.
  3. It looks like the GT430 is about $55 on Amazon. for that price, just get a GT 630 or GT 620. Much more powerful, and more modern, so you'll get more features and more performance for the same price.
