I was originally looking at the 8600GT series, and everyone told me to really consider the GTS series. I got some extra money and I think I can come up with another $150 so I am looking at $300 8800 GTS cards, which should be twice as fast as 8600GT and handle any game that I am playing.  I found these 2 8800GTS 320 cards for $300: BFG Tech GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16  


XFX GeForce 8800 GTS Video Card - Fatal1ty Edition 320MB DDR3, PCI Express - , FREE Lost Planet: Extreme Condition PC Game,    Now, it seems to me, that the only real difference is that the BFG card has GDDR memory and 1700MHz mem clock speed, and the XFX card has DDR and 2000MHz mem clock speed.  


Does this difference really mean anything? Will there be a difference in FPS?  

What is the difference between GDDR memory and DDR memory? Is one better then the other

Is there any other differences between these 2 cards that would indicate which is better to buy? (Uh – besides that fact that the XFX one comes with a free game)



I have an EVGA 8800 gts 640mb that is in near brand new condition and has never had a single problem that I'd be willing to sell for $250 obo!!!

Here is a link to the model that I have so you can check the specs: LINK
