Damn beat me to it What I really want to know is how the GTS is gonna do. I just re-enlisted and I have some cash coming for the bonus. Plan on getting a Gigabyte DS3 with a 6600(haven't figured out what kind of ram yet) as well as an HDTV. I don't want to get a 8800GTX because it's just too expensive, plus the cost of a whole new power supply. The GTS is in the realm of possibilities though.

I was looking at the FSX strategy guide at Best Buy and the author wrote in the SLI section that both Nvidia and 3DFX currently offer SLI solutions. LOL

GeForce 8800GTX
SM2.0 = 4783
SM3.0/HDR = 4905
Are these scores linear? What I mean is if I am getting 2496 in SM2.0 with my setup, can it be assumed the 8800GTX is almost TWICE as fast?

With SM2.0 2496 and SM3.0 2903 currently, this looks to be a worthy upgrade.

I hope SLI is not needed to to get at least 1152x864 4xAA in Crysis though....

Wow... some awesome scores!

I'm more curious about in-game results though. We've got 3DMark05 and 06 results, how about some FEAR, Oblivion, HL2: LC and EP1, FarCry, Prey, etc. Bring on the game results!!!

Not 100% , but its an indication of the overall shader performance of the GPU .. the situation in games could get a little different.

Default Re: 8800GTX is selling

Another thing i noticed with these scores that G80 is doing better on SM3.0/HDR than SM2.0 (just like the X1900 series) , unlike the GF7 series which used to get higher SM2.0 scores.
i guess its the right move from nvidia as SM3.0/HDR is being involved more & more into the new & next gen games.
