    Re: Nvidia Model codes - whats best? GS/GTS/GT

    I got one of these yesterday http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=631250

    As the coolers on my cards were not upto the job anymore resulting it plenty of crashing. It seems ok but I kept al-tabing last night to check the temps
    Its taken about 15 degrees off my cards. Only problem was I had to buy extra ram coolers for the card which is less than ideal but should keep me going for a bit.

    Re: Nvidia Model codes - whats best? GS/GTS/GT

    i wouldnt be able to give an honest answer on wether 2.0 cards are backwards compatible with 1.1 only motherboards but id of thought they were, just means you wont get as much (not that its all used anyway) bandwidth from the PCI-E slot
    2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.1 but not 1.0a (apparently some manufacturers are offering a VGA card BIOS to take the card to 1.1 giving compatability with 1.0a slots)

    Its been shown that there is no real performance decrease using the current 2.0 cards in 1.1 slots. Although future cards may benefit from the extra bandwidth.

    GT
    GT 2.0
    GTS
    GTS 2.0
    Its more like

    8800GT 256MB
    8800GT 512MB < This would be my pick
    8800GTS 640MB < this is the old model, its out performed by the above card so I wouldnt bother with this one
    8800GTS 512MB < not out until the 11th I believe and no solid price info

    All of the 8800GT cards are PCI Express 2.0 as well as the new 8800GTS 512MB.
