I am pricing up to build a new pc, main use games and lan party with pals. Was thinking of buying the 8800gtx but is it worth the extra cost over an 8800gt or the ati 3870?

can any one post me a good link to a review of the ati 3870 vs 8800, ta.

I think I'd go for an 8800GT if it was my money

8800gt and you can upgrade to a 9 series card when they come out.

8800GT wins this hands down :-)

Ditto. Get the 8800gt. The 3870 was a dissapointment. Not a very good card at all really.

computerdiv what monitor type and size have you got?
if you have got a 19" lcd your best bet it the 8800gts but try get a bfg slightly weaked only around £200 as the resolutions ur monitor can do assuming u have a lcd 19" will be 1280*1024 and the gts will handle anything at this res easy.

also just looked at the cards the only difference i can see from a gt to a gts apart from slight tweaks in the speeds is the gts has 16more stream processors
but think this 1 should do fine
