Default Differences between the 8800GTS and the 8800GTX

The two remaning parts I have to buy is the Video card and Ram.

Now, I found a low $400 eVGA 8800GTS, but I hear alot of talk about the GTX. What are the differences, and is worth the money to upgrade to the GTX?

-Joe

8800 gts and gtx price/performance is perfect. the gts is 25% less in cost and 25% less in performance. or something close like that.

right now, not so much. for future, yes. ut2007, crysis, and enemy territory, etc will benefit a decent amount. don't get me wrong though, the gts will do great as well.

i went for the GTX jus cuz the price really isn't that much more when you're buying a 2000 dollar system. 25% more performance is quite a lot imo so I'm glad I went with it.
