I usually play at resolutions of 1280-1024. My question is, would I really see the difference performance wise between 8800 gts, 8800 gt or the 8800gs. If it is only a 5-10 fps difference, is it worth and extra 60-80 bucks?

Avoid the 256MB 8800GT. The 512MB GT is better than the other two, but the other two both do great at that resolution. I think the 8800GS is a tad better than the 320MB GTS.

This 8800GS is lower clocked than the evga 8800GS SC, but still manages to slightly outpace the 320MB GTS, both cards having victories.

Look at this chart to compare the 8800GT:

A 9600gt is in between the 8800gs and the 8800gt. You would definatly see an increase in preformance over a 8800gs, but the 8800gs is cheaper. If you are one of the people who absolutely needs AA and AF to the max, then get the 9600gt, otherwise you'll only get a ~10% increase over the 8800gs.

Makes sense to me, im not a big over clocker on gpus though, only know about over clocking cpus. But i guess id put it as a match up between the 8800 gs or the 9600 gt.How easy is one to clock compared to the other?

The $105 evga 8800GS is factory overclocked to 650 core/1900 DDR. So you don't have to do a thing to have a card that trades blows with a 9600GT.

dragas89,

Are you planning on running games at 1280x1024 with AA & AF maxed out or turned off?

I am kind of in the same spot as you. I got a 19" inch square monitor that runs at 1280x1024 but I want to be able to run the majority of games at MAX graphics and not dip under 50 fraps.

I am trying to figure out which card could do that on a consistent basis even when heavy fighting with hundreds of units are involved like in RTS games like Command & Conquer 3.

Where did you find an 8800GS for $105? Is that with or with out rebate? and if with, then how much is the rebate?

But yesterday Fry's had it for $87 shipped after a $40 rebate.
