Default GTX 275 vs 8800GTS?

I have the oportunity to get a GTX 275 at 50% discount, how much more powerful is it over the 8800GTS?

Is it worth me upgrading now, or waiting until the DX11 parts are out? I'll probably get the same deal on a DX11 part.

Thanks, AStaley.

50% discount? As in... $125?

Hell yes, buy it.

At the very least you can sell it for $250 on ebay when the GT300 is released.

You should see a rather large improvement in just about every game. Especially shader-heavy games and games with Physx.

Here is a basic comparison between the two cards:

8800GTS - 128 shader processors, 10.2Mpix\41.6Mtex fillrate, 41.6Gb\sec bandwidth
GTX 275 - 240 shader processors, 20.2Mpix\50.6Mtex fillrate, 127Gb\sec bandwidth

Quite a difference.

I would be all over a 275 for 50% off if I owned an 8800GTS. You can likely get a decent OC out of it as well. Try it with the below software.

I would say it is about twice as powerful at the very least.

I love my old g92. Great card for many years but, the newer cards definitely help with a higher-res display.

As I've recently found, working in the IT industry and having contact with volume suppliers really has it's advantages.

Anyway, placed my order for the GTX 275. Thanks for the responses.
