I purchased in early November an EVGA Nvidia 8800 GTS KO ACS(320) because it had higher clock speeds then the Standard GTS or even the OC'ed GTS i was looking at. I figured I would SLI eventually, unfortunatly it has become very hard to track down this specific card, and at the price I can find it for (400$) I could easily get a larger(640 meg)
Would SLI even work with two cards running different sized memory appetures, and at different clock speeds? Do they have to be exactly Identical cards. wondering if anyone had any experience with this.
"you would be best off just getting an 8800gt 512. just my opinion. I upgraded from a 320mb gts to a 512gt and there is a huge jump in"
These are in the 300$ price range obviously, but dual 8800GTS has to beat single 8800GT. I have the power with very stable 12v rails. Maybe I will stick with the single GTS and just poor all my money into x38 Chipset and 3ghz Quad core intel chip.
eagles4538 09 was right, but with the wrong card. Instead of an 8800 GT get the new 8800 GTS G92 512mb edition, it crushes the GT, and performs neck and neck with a GTX at lower res, and slightly worse at higher. At about 30 bucks more you can get a great card that murders 2 8800 GTS 320mbs and an 8800 GT.
NVIDIA’s new 65nm GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB retakes the GTS crown and spaces it properly between the 65nm 8800 GT and 90nm GTX in terms of retail marketing. The GeForce 8800 GT delivers a great gaming experience at its price range, but the GeForce 8800 GTX and Ultra are still the fastest cards on the block at high resolutions and of course you will still pay for that. The new GTS does not offer a better gaming experience than you can already get on the year old GeForce 8800 GTX.
If you have a GeForce 8800 GTX or Ultra already, you still have the cream of the crop. No single-GPU video card has yet beaten the GTX or Ultra for gaming performance.
But then again, the 8800GTS 512MB OCs higher so...
