This thread discusses and links to one of the more recent reviews comparing the two cards and the most recent dx10 results.
There are many other reviews and forum discussions that have gone over this topic already. I really don't think a new 2900 vs. 8800 thread at this point will add any new info.

Well I personally think that the performance of the 2900XT is right in between the 8800GTS 640 and the 8800GTX 768, so if you have the money and the power supply for it then go with it. Though the 8800GTS 640mb is probably much better buy for your $. That is just my opinion...hope this helps!

Best,

For the GTS your psu should be fine, but for the 2900 youd need a lil more on the 12volt rails

I just found a very good review of the hd 2900xt from neoseeker. I must say i would go with it just to be different (there are soooooo many 8800gts cards around!) Its performance in games where the drivers are soughted is better than the 8800.

But if your psu doesnt hav enough power then the 8800 is a good choise. (the hd 2900xt is isanely hungry for power) :D

:!: You need a better power supply for either HD2900XT or 8800GTS 640MB.
450W ACBel is not enough for today's high end cards!

If you like your PSU that much, don't ask others for advice about it. :evil:

Then go ahead and use your Ultra-High-End PSU & enjoy the last moments of your system's life. :wink:
