Its slower Plus even though you have more Ram on the video doesn't mean the punny 8600 core can take advantage of it. Stick with the faster smaller amount of ram.

Ask ! Get the answer JuiceJones December 12, 2007 8:40:22 AM In cases where 256MB of memory or less are being used, the DDR3 version will be faster. These cases are at lower resolutions where the 8600GT is best suited anyways, making it the better option. cleeve December 12, 2007 1:47:58 PM GDDR3 version will me MUCH faster. Coldplayer December 12, 2007 11:31:07 PM how many FPS is MUCH xx12amanxx December 13, 2007 12:10:11 AM Coldplayer said:how many FPS is MUCH 7600gt ddr3 to 7600gt ddr2 wise probably which was quite a bit. cleeve December 13, 2007 2:36:49 AM Coldplayer said:how many FPS is MUCH MUCH is LOTS. Seriously, if you want specific FPS counts you need to look at benches. Depends on the system, game, resolution, etc. physx7 December 14, 2007 1:07:42 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130290 Here is a gddr3 512MB 8600 gt. chookman December 14, 2007 1:49:04 AM y not fork out a little extra and get one of these... will blow the 8600 series outta the water http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127313 physx7 December 14, 2007 12:02:12 PM Quote:y not fork out a little extra and get one of these... will blow the 8600 series outta the water Now we are coming to the fork out a little more and you would have an 8800 gt. zenmaster December 14, 2007 12:34:55 PM chookman said:y not fork out a little extra and get one of these... will blow the 8600 series outta the water http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127313 Well, that's quite a bit more than a "little" different. You can get 8600GTs for almost 1/2 that price on sale. But, I don't dispute that the 8600GT is not a gaming card. It will do "OK" with some things, but not at Hi Res or at Hi Detail. runswindows95 December 14, 2007 1:07:48 PM DDR3 is faster than DDR2. cleeve December 14, 2007 2:36:22 PM zenmaster said: You can get 8600GTs for almost 1/2 that price on sale. Where can you get two 8600 GTs for $85? Even if you could get 8600 GTs in triple SLI, a single 3850 would still beat 'em methinks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
