Yes, I do like it quite a bit. I assume you plan to OC quite a bit (from the fast ram).
No actually, I do not plan to overclock for a little bit.. I am not a heavy gamer, until it starts slowing down majourly I am leaving it at stock settings. The only thing I will be doing is setting the RAM to 1066 in the BIOS because the board is default at 800. It all comes out to be around $1500..
Looking good tbh, but why the 3870? Judging by your motherboard choice, you must have a decent budget to work with.
Well I Am A 13 Year Old Paying 40% Of Costs (My Dad Pays The Other 60%:D) He Has This Card - Works Amazingly, And I Read In One Of Tom's VGA News That This Card Is The 4th Best Right Below The 8800 Ultra, The 3870X2, And The 8800 GTS. I Might Even Go With The GTS I Havent Decided... I Need The VGA Charts For 2008 To Come Out!!!:D
Notice those charts do not include the 8800GT. I'm pretty sure if they did, It'll snatch that 4th place off the 3870 quite easily.
True, that is why I'm looking forward to the 2008 charts, and wondering when the 2007 and 2006 charts came out so I know around what month they're out
Well regardless of the charts, your best bet is to go with the 8800GTS (G92). It is hands down better than both the 8800GT and the 3870 and when overclocked, It's on par with the 9800GTX.
You might want to get 4GB of ram if your using Vista
I'm Running XP Home 32-Bit.. And I'm Thinking Bout Getting The - BFG GeForce 8800GTS OC nVidia GeForce 8800GTS Chipset (675Mhz) Shader Clock (1674Mhz) 512MB (1940Mhz) GDDR3 Dual Dual-Link DVI PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card... What Do You Guys Think??
Yes, excellent choice. And if you're running XP x32 then leave the ram as it is. I think you've just about perfected your setup. All thats left now is to buy.
Have fun with it mate.
Haha thanks, I have the case, MoBo, and 2 DVD drives already, and shortly I will get the power supply.. I am getting the video card last since technology keeps on changing. For example, I bought the Asus Maximus Formula, and for the 20 $$$ more I could now get the Asus Rampage Formula.
