    Im looken to buy either the EVGA GeForce 8800GTS KO, or the EVGA over-clocked GeForce 8800GTS. The ko is priced at 380$ on newegg and comes with quake wars. The over-clocked version is priced at 460$. What gives? The overclock has slightly better specs but why the big price diff.. What am im missing. Sure the overclocked one looks way better in exterior but not 100$ dollers worth.

    Also, Im runnig a amd 4600+ and two gigs of ocz ram on socket 939. Will this setup handle ether cards? Or will their be major bottlenecking?


    Thx 4 ur help

    320-bit to a 256-bit. Isnt that a big drop in graphic quality?

    Brand / Model / Memory si
    640-P2-N827-AR ($460) and 640-P2-N828-A1 ($380)

    The former also includes:

    Driver Disk
    User Manual
    HDTV Cable
    S-Video Cable
    2 x Power Cable
    2 x DVI to VGA/D-sub Adapter

    Dont know if that causes the big price difference though.

    8800GTS 640MB @ 575/1750
    Get the cheaper of the two. I have an 8800gts, and while i keep it at around 640/1500/1900, I can get it to 700/1700/2000 without artifacting @ 68Celcius...i just know that's really high and i'm worried about what it will do.

    Um no, they're the same card; 8800GTS.

    Get the cheaper one btw.

    How about the 8800GT???? It's cheaper, and it's almost as fast as the 8800GTX assuming you don't turn AA and AF to max.

    You can't seriously be thinking about getting an 8800GTS now... Go for the 8800GT instead like daddy says. Buy the EVGA overclocked one, it's 260 euro's and faster then the GTS...

    I'd have to agree;

    If you're buying a new card right now, choosing the 8800GT is a no-brainer. :knock:

    Ugh, forget those cards, get the 640-P2-N829-A1 -- $360, 576MHz, 1800MHz mem clock, 112 shaders. The 827 is clocked at 580MHz, the 828 at 540MHz. Both run 1700MHz mem clock, the 828 has 112 shaders as well.

    Performance wise the 829 can keep up w/ the 8800GT, has 640MB, but uses more power. I doubt the G80 based 112 shader GTS' will be on the market very long -- if you think you need more than 512MB of memory (GT) in the future you better get one (GTS).
