X1900XTX to 8800GTS

Hey All,

Just spotted a cheap EVGA 8800gts 320mb Superclocked and wondered if it would be worth upgrading from my Sapphire X1900XTX 512mb.

Would I see a good increase in FPS even though it has a lower amount of memory, I game mostly at 1680 x 1050 so would the card be able to handle playing at that res.

Thanks alot, Sam

Quite a large improvement in terms of FPS going from the X1900XTX to the 320MB 8800 GTS. It's border-line on the resolution though, normally the suggestion seems to be when you hit 1680 x 1050 you move onto the 640MB versions or a 2900 XT due to more memory available for textures and higher AA settings.

The card is even a superclocked EVGA card which are really superb cards. I'd recommend it, plus you get a lifetime warranty and the ability to "step up" the card if you pay the difference, in case you wanted a GTX or a 640mb version at a later point.

That kind of deal its buy first ask questions later... You get enough protection from your bank/ebay to get the money back so I'd do it!
