I'm building a new rig soon and just needed to know which card would perform better. The 8800GTS is priced lower but i wouldn't mind the extra cash if the 8800GT performance was better.

Thanks.

If you look on Newegg, the two are about the same price. And I think that the 8800GT has a little bit better performance just because of the extra memory.

Thanks. Also, is there a massive difference between an 8600GTS 512MB and 8800GT on a 22" screen? Or is it only a small difference?

8800GT blows the 8600GTS and 8800GTS out fucking of the water.

The difference between those two is the bit interface and core and memory clocks are faster on the 8800, much better for larger displays.

Actually the core and memory clocks are slightly faster on the 8600GTS. The 8800GT has 4 memory buses as opposed to 2 on the 8600GTS (256 bit vs 128bit), and has 3 and a half times as many stream processors as the 8600GTS (112 vs 32) giving it the vast performance advantage. While the 8800GTS has 5 memory buses (320 bit) it has significantly slower clocks and fewer stream processors (96) than the 8800GT. In my honest opinion, The best bang for your buck right now would be the Radeon HD 3870. It easily outruns the 8600GTS and the 8800GTS. It runs head to head with it's much more expensive predecessor, the Radeon HD 2900XT, and nearly keeps pace with the 8800GT. It also supports DX10.1 and SM4.1 and uses much less power due to it's 55nm process. $219.99 at newegg - $50-110 less than the 8800GT (depending on which brand/model you get).

Radeon HD 3870.. Lol i never even thought of going ATI, checked it out and it's a sweeeet card, comes very very close to a 8800GT, is cheaper by a fair bit and supports DX10.1.

AND uses less power. VERY sweet card.

Thanks a lot dude.
