Default Re: GTS 250 from 8800 GTS Upgrade - Worth It ?

Of course I game at a much higher res so the difference would probably be more noticeable to me than to you.

Edit: Also that at res even with moderate AA/AF I don't think you would benefit much from the 1GB version.
I have an EVGA 8800 GTS 640MB at stock clocks. I was thinking the upgrade to the GTS 250 would allow me to always play with 4xAA or better where the 8800 GTS sometimes doesn't allow that and get the smoothness I like in gameplay. I'm really sensitive to frame rate so I always keep my settings at a place to maximize frame rate with good visuals too. Of course most everything I play right now is old enough I can keep 4xAA on, but of course a few of them I can't.

Thanks for your input I appreciate it.
