Evga 640, you can OC just using nTune without voiding the warranty (just don't get burn marks on the card) and save yourself the SC price premium. Superclocked is not even noticeable, especially since everyone is at least OCing 8800s to at least 600core, 1800 ram.
I am doing 640 core, 1924 ram and it runs under 72C at these settings under full load.
Ok cheers guys...really appreciate all of your quick responses. I guess at this time due to my monitor I will go for the EVGA Superclocked 320mb - http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125117. I can use their step up deal if I get another monitor and change to the 640mb.
do not even think about getting a 320mb version. If you want to play crysis with the highest textures, then get the 640mb version.
I recommend evga. superclocked or not, doesnt matter really.
Well at the moment, due to the max res setting of my monitor, the EVGA 320mb SC out performs the 640mb. When I change the monitor, and Crysis should be out and reviewed by then, I can use the step up program to change to the 640mb, and potentially save myself some dosh
Well guys, all the new equipment is installed. The PSU is soooo much quieter than my original Dell one. The EVGA 8800GTS 320mb Superclocked is awesome. Max's Stalker with full AA, MoH Airborne with no problems at all, runs very quiet too. I would definitely recommend it if your monitor doesn't have anything abov 1280 this is the beast to get and it out performs the 640mb version quite significantly.....and with the step up program available it makes it an evenn better deal
