Default Re: GTX 280 vs. 8800GTS G92 SLI

GTX 280 is a better investment. They'll both give similar performance. Under that condition you'll want the larger framebuffer afforded by the 280. Having at least 786 megs of memory on your GPU ram will really benefit some games like Far Cry 2 and heavy anti aliasing settings.

I have had both and I thought the two 8800GTS was just as fast untill I put in my GTX 280 and it really was no compareing them.FSAA and aniso runs so much smoother with a GTX 280.That extra 512MB of ram really comes in handy.The GTX 280 will run the newer games so much better .To me ther is just no comparsion.The GTX280 is over twice as fast as a pair of 8800GTS in sli in some games.You want regret buying a GTX 280 or a GTX 285 or even a pair of GTX 260-212 and run it in SLI.
