Hi! I found a 8800GS quite cheap and im wondering if it will perform way better than my 7600GT PCI-E. I know that the 8800GS has DX10 support, but im not interested in that(for now at least). So, would you recommend me to purchase this cheap 8800GS?
Thanks in advance!
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 4 GB RAM(2x2, Kingston, PC2-6400), XFX GeForce
8800GT XXX 670M (512MB GDDR3), ASUS M2N-MX Mobo, Sound Blaster Audigy
SE SB0570(7.1, HD EAX), 2 SATAII HDDs: WD 500GB and Samsung 160GB
OS: Windows XP SP3(Pro) x86.
It won't offer you over-the-top performance compared to the 7600GT, but I would say it is a reasonable upgrade. Where you would see the largest performance gains is to pair it with a second 8800GS for SLI in the future.
ASUS Rampage Formula; Core 2 Quad Extreme QX9650 @5.13GHz; 4GB Buffalo Firestix PC2-9600 DDR2; Thermaltake Armor w/ Bigwater SE; XFX Geforce 9800 GTX 'Black Edition'; Corsair HX620 Power Supply 620W
It would be a very nice upgrade. But how much cheaper is it for you
than a 9600GT? The 9600GT has the advantage of 512mb of memory,
instead of "just" 384mb. It would be worth paying a little more. How
much more is subjective, but up to $20 imo. Still, even with the
8800GS you will see big improvements. If you're looking for high
settings in newer games you undoubtably will accomplish that. Go for it.
Thanks for your replies! Im going for the 8800GS.
