    just wondering cause the price of the gt's are quite low are they better than the older g80 8800gts (320mb) and if so by how much ? 5-10% at most i would think but not too sure

    In benchmarking the GT's are much better, gaming yeah, on average it's about a 10% better than the GTS. Unless you have a wicked sick GTS like me.;) Though the GT will still beat mine in benchies.

    Yes they are better but not by much but the other features of the 8800GT outway the G80's. If you have a G80 GTS dont bother getting a 8800GT tho.. wait for newer better stuff.

    I really don't see the point of upgrading unless your demands need it. Or, if you are a benchmarking junkie like myself, I would totally go with a new (G92) GTS! Why not a 9800GTX?

    It's got more shaders, and it looks waayyy sexier! The cores are slightly different and driver support is relatively new with them, I'd go with the GTX if you can find one at a good price.

    Oh and again. what a game against Arsenal, best futbal game I've seen since I became a fan.:toast:

    GTX = Liverpool:rockout:
