xfx 8800gt xt VS xfx 8800gt 1gb Tags: Nvidia Graphics Last response: April 30, 2008 10:48 AM in Graphics & Displays Share ashleypursglove April 30, 2008 9:00:28 AM Im looking into buying one ( at the minute then sli in future ) of the above cards. My problem is I do not know which is the best card. The XT model has half the RAM, but has a faster core clock and memory clock. ( 640 and 1.9 ghz compared to 600 and 1.8 ghz ) Any suggestions on which is the better of the 2 cards? Here are links to both the cards. XT - http://www.xfxforce.com/web/product/listConfigurationDe... 1GB - http://www.xfxforce.com/web/product/listConfigurationDe... Also, Ive read a lot on the web about the 9600gt vs the 8800gt and chose the 8800gt. Is this the best choice?Just been looking at the 9600gt alphadog. 9600gt Alpha - http://www.xfxforce.com/web/product/listConfigurationDe...

You will get the best performance from the factory overclocked 512Mb version basketcase April 30, 2008 10:37:13 AM And even at the ultra high resolutions, the 1 gig of ram will still not be fully "effective" since there is only a 256 memory bus. I would personally go for the XT of the ones you listed. It is going to give you the fastest performance.
