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

But in my thinking a 250 is basically a 9800 GTX, which is basically an 8800 at heart. You won't be seeing much of a difference compared to the 640 mb version of the 8800 GTS, 320 mb version yes. You'd actually probably see a bigger increase in performance if you had 8800 GTS 640s in SLI. But it wouldn't really be worth it, you'd get a little better performance out of 1 GTX 260 without the problems of SLI and more VRAM.
Thanks. Everything here is about what I expected to hear, some performance increase but not a lot. I'll probably wait till the next generation ships and then buy something. I haven't looked at the hard drive cage recently but from what I remember it's fixed and you can't move it.

Thanks again to everyone for sharing your thoughts with me.
