Most likely then this wont drop prices of the 8800GTS.

Untill officla specs are realsed, would the 8800GTS be better, ro should I go with the 8700GTS because of hdmi 10.1 etc.

Like I said before. DX10.1 and HDMI, won't make a big difference in terms of performance. The 8800GTS is better than the 8700GTS.

But DX10.1 will be better for future sakes?

Also, waht is DX 10.1 lol.


Also HDMI would be nice to once in a while hook it up to the TV with HDMI!

Be my guess, if you want those features. But in my opinion, the 8700GTS won't outperform the 8800GTS, because of those new features.

DX10.1 is like a soft update of DX10. They include minor things like, more control over anti-aliasing.

i'll just take a 8700gts and overclock it.. since it won't be toasty like the 8800, i wouldn't mind

Should be a good card for lower resolutions if it drops from msrp pretty quickly.. Especially if it overclocks well (which it should). Don't think you'd have to turn down much Crysis eyecandy at 14x9 after a little overclockage and at $160-$170 after a little should be a pretty good deal.

And just fyi if you don't already know tainted, Crysis won't even require a dx10 card, let alone a dx10.1

Ya, everyone forgets that Crysis is still going to be a great performer in DX9 mode.
