    8800GTS 640MB £129

    dabs.com - XFX GeForce 8800GTS 640MB DDR3 PCIE DVI (PV-T80G-TDF4)

    I bought one this am but found that the Credit card had been registered wrongly (school address not home) so that cost me £20 (original order came to £105 inc vat and delivery.)

    Even so at £129 (£200 last week) its a bargain, much faster than a 9600gt and with lots of memory, this is clearance so buy quick.

    PPS I have a discount on my account because its used for work So I paid £125 inc delivery w00t!

    It's not bad value but but AFAIK its based on older tech and is outperformed by the 8800GT which is faster and requires less power. The 8800GT card below is probably a better bet IMO :-

    IIRC, there are two revisions of the GTS. The old one is outperformed by the GT but the newer one is actually slightly faster. It might be possible to find out which type this card is but I suspect it's the older variety if it's in clearance.

    320MB/640MB is the G80
    512MB is the G92

    Thanks, I have cancelled. Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB | Tom's Hardware

    Shows the 640MB version to be lots slower!

    I can confirm this. Ive got the 8800GT. Its great as it doesnt take up 3 PCI slots like the G80-GTS does with its massive cooler

    The 8800GT does tend to get a bit on the hot side. It only uses a single slot cooling solutions whereas the GTS/X use dual slot soloutions. Still a very good card for the money though.
