It's the 256mb version but it's still a good deal. One of many going on lately it looks like lol.

not what all forms agree on, I have read here the 8800gt 256mb is better then 8800gs but I have read opposite on other tech sites.

8800gt benchmarks better from what I've seen. 8800gs maybe overclocks better? I don't know...

I have the card, 8800gs is not better. Even the 9600gt is barely any better, in some games only. It just has less memory, its still an 8800gt.

8800gs is a crippled 8800gt.

Ive got mine at 650/850 up from stock clocks of 600/700 and can take it up to 675/875 perfectly stable with no artifacts.

Oh well that's pretty good, Rican. Stock cooling, too, it looks like. Impressive! I think it's just becasue the 8800gs was price so much lower for a while there that it has such a good rep.

I made a thread about it a few weeks back, basically my temps were too high so i took off the stock cooler and threw this sucker on.
