Re: 8800 Gts Or 8800 Gt 512mb
The GTS has 25% more shaders, can overclock easily to 750mhz core, has better memory (none of the crappy qmodo memory that dies if run over 1ghz), has the better cooler, and usually comes with a game.
FYI i have had both the GT and GTS512, and i prefer the GTS just for the better cooler if nothing else.
Edit: unless you buy an EVGA GT you WILL void the warranty by changing the cooler on the card, so if you plan to change the cooler, i would go with either an EVGA GT, or just get a GTS. Remember to register the card within 30 days no matter what you decide on, most warranties require you to register the card for the lifetime warranty.
Nothing to see here.
