i wonder how much these will cost, anyone know?
It's entry level so < $150.
thanks :) i might get this then, i was thinking of getting the 8800 GTS (i think) at about £179.99
Stick with the GTS gta. Overclockers.co.uk is your best bet for a good price. I would recommend a BFG model with their lifetime warranty.
cheers for the info mate :) will check it out now
Actually, the more "expensive" of the two has an MSRP of less than $100, while the cheaper one comes in less than $60. If somebody comes out with passively cooled versions, these two cards would be great for HTPCs. The 8800 GT is a great gaming card, but it's meant for a different market.
well at the moment i am running: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 1GB 6400 DDR2 RAM (soon to be 3GB) 500GB main and 250GB external HDD ATI X800 GTO PowerColour 19" TFT Monitor as you can see i REALLY need to upgrade my graphics card lol, i do quite a lot of video encoding and do play games although prob wont bother with Crysis for a while lol, so what do you think i should get? [EDIT] my 19" monitor's MAX resolution is 1280x1024 (always use at this resolution) so it isnt HD just thought this would be good info lol
