  1. Yes, or rather, you could consider which cards you include based on sales figures. The 8800 series was a very successful series. Performance-wise, the 8800 GT is similar to some of the lower-end cards included in your analysis.

    Funny how I can play Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, and Dota 2 on medium to high settings, but I'm told I should upgrade...
     
  2. What he has failed to mention is Sim city is HORRIBLY optimized at the time these test were done.

    A GTX Titan getting only 52 FPS on mid quality??? Yea right, Give me a break EA.
     
  3. This proves that the fx 8350 is really only 25-30% slower in performance per clock.
    I5 at 3.0Ghz scores the same as the FX 8350 at 4.0Ghz and it only uses 3 cores.
     
  4. To the user who said 4 core FX is a good buy NO!!!!!!!!! Games are using more cores and Amd is 25-30% slower compared to Intel and that doesn't include the 25% penalty from CMT when a game uses more then 4 cores.
    Games at least use 3 cores heavily now so that means a FX 6 core is the best buy for now and a 140$ 8 core fx is even a better buy
