    8800 GTS SSC 640MB Review

    Courtesy of the Firingsquad.
    Basically, as mentioned by some of you (or at least staffsMike), just a touch better than the GT.
    Almost not worth having both product in the line out in my opinion.

    Is this the new version of the GTS, I take it? If so, and you have a little extra cash to spend (and can't wait for the GTs to get back in stock), this *might* be a viable purchase...

    Yeah, fair to say over the 2 you'd have to buy the GT. The GTS will be quieter though and presumably cooler too. Other than that, it's not a hard choice to make.

    Especially considering you can get eVGA's SSC Edition of the GT and it would *still* be $100 cheaper than the SSC GTS...

    I'd deffinatly still have the GT and i'd certainly have the GT over the GTX since you could SLi them for the same money and i've got a pcie slot just waiting for another gfx card

    Now I am starting to regret not grabbing a 8800GT when it first showed up on Ebuyer. I wanted to hold for a passive version of the card, but looking at the current options, there is no reason for the 8800GT to drop back to <&#163;150 level for a long time.

    I don't think this is the "new" GTS as that's rumoured to be coming out on 3 Dec and have 128sp and be based on the G92. Expectations are that it will be slightly quicker than the GTX. I think this SSC 640MB GTS is based on the G80. I could be wrong though.
