Default Should I upgrade to a GTX

I have an offer to Trade my GTS for GTX plus $80. Considering I only paid 200 for my card should I go for it? Is my psu enough for it. Dual rail 22 amps each.


Edit: I'm going to see if I can get him down to 60 bucks or alittle lower.

Edit: You know I was thinking doesn't the GTS stay w/ the GTX in benchies until it goes into high res?

9800GTX? If its only 80 bucks, yes. The GTS512's resale value has tanked.

You'll be fine on the psu, for 80 bucks more, i probably would make the trade just because the 8800GTS has tanked in value so bad.

still a better card.. I wouldn't do it. not worth the money. You probably will not be able to sell either. So unless you really want one, then I wouldn't do it.

yeah for sure go with a step up to the 8800GTX, totally worth it, especially if you're gaming beyond 1680x1050

It can't play crysis any better. and the GTS 512 has no trouble on any game. and I play at 1900x1200. I mean really. no need!

I'm so torn. I need to make up my mind soon cause this deal will go down this sunday. I need more input guys.

Edit: So after looking around. Seems as though the GTS really stands up against the 8800GTX if not beating it sometimes. Makes the decision alittle harder now.

woah, I though you were stepping up from a 640/320 GTS... the 512GTS is fine, it'll keep you happy for a long while

no need to step up, keep the $80
