"A pair of 8800 GT cards uses less power than a single 8800 GTS."

Your chart does NOT support this statement.


Huh?

"8800 GT OC SLI Idle = 185, Under Load = 275"
"8800 GTS Idle = 190, Under Load = 276"

I'm no math whiz, but, yeah.







Bottom line = I am buying a pair of these for my next upgrade. Wow!
Given YOUR math, the difference between 275 & 276 Watts is within the "standard of error" for the technique applied.
So you are assuming, factoring in this "standard of error", that the SLI GT numbers are actually higher than the posted numbers and/or the Single GTS are actually lower than posted?

Problem is the "standard of error" you speak of also supports the possibility that the SLI GT numbers are lower than posted and/or the Single GTS numbers are higher than posted. Right?

But this weak argument doesn't change the fact that you stated "Your chart does NOT support this statement".
I was pointing out that the chart DOES support the statement even if you don't.

My guess is that you were looking at the BFG 8800 GT OC numbers and doubled them rather than looking at the 8800 GT OC SLI numbers. You then went back after reading what I posted, realized your mistake and are now attempting to make yourself look better.

But just to end this off-topic discussion, I will be the bigger man here and say you were right and I was wrong.

275 > 276


You win.

This effectively killed the 8800GTS 640MB/320MB.

I hear revamped GTS/GTX cards will release in November.

Would you reccomend this over a 8800GTS 640mb for resolutions 1600x1200 or larger(or 1650x1080, whatever 22 inches wide is)
