    Check out http://www.nvidia.co.uk/page/geforce8.html for the order (best to worst).

    ^ while the order is technicly correct the 8800GT is currently above the GTS until the new revision of GTS is out which i think is also a 512mb card

    new revision is out in either this month or next month but i havent really been keeping up to speed with the latest info

    Ok, the plot thickens

    How does this chart work then? Which is better out of the GT, the GTS 320bit and the GTS 256bit with 512ram and higher clocks?

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

    here you go:

    * GeForce 8800 Ultra
    * GeForce 8800 GTX
    * GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB
    * GeForce 8800 GT
    * GeForce 8800 GTS 320/640MB

    Thats how i understand the performance is, the differance between the 320 and 640 GTS is relevant only when using larger reolutions/games with larger or higher quality textures

    Right, more questions lol!

    Which of the 8800s are PCI-e 2.0? And does it really matter if my mobo is only pci-e 1.1?

    PCI-e 2.0 is double the bandwidth of 1.1

    If my memory serves me correct

    as far as im aware the 8800GT and GTS512mb are the only PCI2.0 cards on the market

    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

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

    I was looking at the 8800s yesterday after I ended up getting some new coolers for my 7800s and I came to the conclusion that it wasnt worth paying for anything more than an 8800 GT unless you had plenty of cash.
    I will probably wait for the 9000 series or what ever comes out next and pick up two high end 8800s.
    I also found it more than mildly irritating that I can get a card that is twice as powerful (GPU and ram speed) for half of the price that I paid for and equivalent series of card just over 18 months or so ago.

    Edit

    Thanks for the link Mr BIOS looks like I wont be waitng to long for that cheap upgrade

    Now if I could just find some decent and cheap watercooling ....

    You know most of the words in that sentence should never be put together!

    Lots of places do kits for around 150-250, There's a few kits for 90 - 100 but without wanting to sound snobbish water cooling over your electrical devices is not something you really want to skint out on!.

    http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/ are good they do kits and there's a big water cooling forum section.

    lol dodgex1

    i was just about to recommend you a really good website for decent kit ChrisH but it seems he's closed his business if you ever heard of it extremeprometeia.com was an excellent site for top notch cooling equipment, got my mach2 GT from there (swapped a laptop for it haha)

    ah the days of -45oC, dont have the money for that anymore
