8800GTS or GTX

  1. I'm going to be building my new computer after intel's price drop (hopefully rumors of nvidia's pricedrop to correspond with intel's are true), and I originally planned on putting in the EVGA 8800GTS 640MB, but after reading through some of the Crysis forums, it seems as if I'd need 1, maybe 2 GTX's to run the game maxed. I know I won't be getting 2, but is it worth the extra $150 to upgrade from 8800GTS 640MB to GTX?

    The rest of my build is as follows:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6850
    EVGA 8800GTS 640MB or GTX
    2GB DDR2 800 Corsair RAM
    ABIT motherboard with P35 Express chipset
    550 Watt Thermaltake Powersupply

    All I'll say is the 640mb GTS when overclocked can match a standard GTX.

    So Id say save a bit of money and get the GTS.

    At which resolution?

    If you have a 1280x1024 monitor, you might as well get the GTS.

    i have a 24" Sammy, max resolution of 1920x1200. i'd like to play at that resolution, but i know that's not possible without like 4 8800 ultra's. i want to play the game on the highest possible resolution with everything maxed 16xAF and 4xAA. should i get the gtx over gts?

    Yes. The GTX will pound the GTS at ultra-high resolutions.
