Default Re: A replacement for my 8800GTS

It'd be better than the 8800GTS, its a 8800GTX rebrand, but I wouldn't buy it. 4890/275/waiting would definitely be the best option.

The 8800GTS 640mb and the 8800GTX are 90nm G80chips and the GTS250 is a 55nm G92 chip.It has almost double the Texture Fill Rate that a 8800GTS 640mb has.But if you are going to buy a card ,go with the HD 4870 1GB,you can find it as low as $139.95 with a free game at newegg.
Or go with the GTX 260 -216 for as low as $179 ,either card is going to be a big improvement over the 8800GTS 640mb you got ,plus either a HD 4870 or a GTX260-216 is going to be faster then a GTS250.Just google some reviews and you will see a 4870 and a gtx260-216 are pretty dam close in performance.I have always had nvidia and ATI cards and I never really had any problems with the drivers ,but I have never ran crossfire.
