I can get either an EVGA 8800GT 512 or an EVGA 8800GTS 640mb for $179, which would you guys suggest. I realize the newer GT has the G92 core, but less memory. According to Toms' video card guide, both are comparable in the games I play and the resolutions I use.
Does anyone have any personal insight? I'm leaning towards the GTS since it has more memory, but it does have a slower clock speed and the older processor. I'm running XP, so DX10 performance isn't a consideration.
Which is more important, clock speed or amount of memory?
I really wish they would price these cards more according to what their performance is, although I guess they still need to recoup the G80 production costs. Then there is the fact that the average user only sees that the 640 has more memory and thinks it is better.
True. But like Jay said, it's good if you have it already. I'm still impressed that I can play Crysis at 1440x900 with everything on high and average filters with great frame rates on a card I've had for a year and a half. I'll be waiting for the next revision or two for sure.
Oh, it's a good card. I didn't mean to make you feel bad about it Hey, my 8800GTX is obsolete too, with 80nm and tons of heat and so on... You don't need an upgrade, absolutely.
I just meant I wouldn't buy an 8800GTS 640 now, with the newer and faster cards so close in price to it. If you grant that the Witcher is worth at least $20, then the MSI 8800GTS G92 is actually cheaper than that GTS 640MB.
