Default 8800 GT or 8800 GTS?

I am going to have two of the same graphics card in dual sli enabled, but not sure which one to pick..

Can someone tell me the Benchmarks for the 8800GT and 8800GTS on Crysis on high and very high?

That will help me decide cant quite find the statistics though.

if you can afford 8800gts sli... just do that

the gts shows a nice performance gain over the gt in crysis

assuming your speaking of the 8800gts 512mb

well i am gonna go with the 8800 GTS 512Mb, but i am not sure if its compatible with my motherboard

It says the memory type is DDR3

and i am getting a 780i motherboard which supports DDR2 memory

Since the memory is on the card, and not Ram
then is it compatible with my motherboard?

yes its ocmpatible

video card memory has nothing to do with motherboard memory support

for the video card on the mobo all you have to worry about is the type of slot it fits.. this being pci-express

you might want to factor in the 750i FTW in your mobo options, you can save a few $$ while getting pretty much 780i performance
