Hi All, Im currently running a 8500GT 128Bit 256Mb DDR2 (G86) and am wanting to upgrade. Now not sure wat to go for the 8800GT or the GTS version? also not sure on wat make, im looking at BFG, Gainward and EVGA cant remember which one but i believe one, GT Version, comes with 1024Mb of GDDR3 RAM!! Which sounds good to me, especially for DX10. The rest offer 512Mb GDDR3 which is obviously much better than wat i have now
Was hoping some1 cud possibly help me out in deciding which i shud go for. Money isnt an issue for either card, jus dont suggest a £350+ GTX or Ultra as i cant afford that lol
Also wud b interested in SLI for the future as i cant afford to buy two cards now. is there a massive diff in performance putting two GTS's together than two GT's
Any help or information will b greatly appreciated, thanks for taking the time in readin my post and offering some advice
For a 22" monitor 512MB is enough. You will rarely if ever see a difference going to a 1GB card unless you have a 24" or greater screen.
Also, the 512MB 8800GTS is a good bit faster than the 512MB 8800GT in Crysis due to its extra shader power. The GTS also has a better and quieter cooler. Don't think that I'm hating on the 8800GT (I have one), but the GTS does have some clear advantages that justify its price premium.
