NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX roundup

Posted on Saturday, Oct 13 2007 @ 03:40 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
With all the new graphics cards just waiting to be released these days it may not be a good idea to go out and buy a GeForce 8800 GTX but in case you can't wait any longer you can check out a new roundup at Firingsquad which compares seven popular GeForce 8800 cards.
Picking the right GeForce 8800 GTX card though can be a daunting task. There are literally dozens of cards to choose from, all with different features and price points. In terms of board design and cooling, NVIDIA has pretty much locked down on board partners producing GeForce 8800 GTX cards, so there is very little variety here – all of NVIDIA’s board partners stick with the stock GeForce 8800 GTX board design and most rely on the stock dual-slot cooler as well – but there are quite a few other options you must consider when shopping for a GeForce 8800 GTX card, clock speeds being one of the most important ones. While many of NVIDIA’s board partners stick with the stock GeForce 8800 GTX clock speeds, there are also several boards shipping at clock speeds that are higher than stock. Game bundle (or not) and warranty are also important aspects you should consider when shopping for a new GeForce 8800 GTX card.
