  1. anyone ??? :(
  2. yeah your 8800 gt will work just fine and i think the solid capacitor board is the same but with solid state capacitor i think its supposed to "save energy" and solid state capacitors last longer but the standard board is fine
  3. thanks a lot dude !! u made my day :)
  4. Solid state capacitors are better quality and last longer.

    I don't like the 256MB 8800GT though. It tanks bad as resolution gets increased, sometimes starting at 1280x1024. Should have bought a 512MB GT or if that was out of budget, an 8800GS.

    It's very cheap if you got this deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125089

    But I'd rather have this (which was cheaper last week)

    edit:
    Take a look at this link: http://en.expreview.com/2008/01/21/review-palit-8800gs-384mb-768mb/?page=20

    example:
    Dirt at 1280x1024 4xaa:
    8800GS 384MB - 32.7fps
    256MB 8800GT - 15.0 fps

    The 8800GT leads alot of low res tests, but really both seem pretty equally playable. But once res and/or fsaa increases, the 256MB 8800GT falls of playable first.

    Keep in mind, I believe the Gigabyte 256MB 8800GT has 700(1400)MHz mem like most 256MB versions.Still nice for $70 AR though, especially if you game at lower res.
  5. thanks man, ya i got that deal for 70$ ... i think its an excellent deal.... and plz enlighten me whether the Card wud work on my EP35 DS3L, thats the main issue really, cos i dont mind playin at relatively low res...btw the link showed that 8800GT 256 performs better at low res than the others, thats more that suffiecient for me man...
  6. I can't see why it would not work on a P35 motherboard. Enjoy the deal; happy gaming.
