BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC: Dated, but still a good option!
6 July 2009
Summary: The 8800 GTS is a now a fairly dated graphics card, it was released by Nvidia back in 2007. Back in 2007 I decided to build my own PC - as I like to play games and use 3d modelling programs It needed to be powerful and have a lot of graphical processing power under its hood. After a lot of research in to graphics cards I realised that the choice would end up being from either ATI or Nvidia. I chose this card.
Pros: Cheap, can still handle most games at their highest settings
Cons: It will soon really start to feel the test of time
Summary: Today it seems like companies are releasing a bigger and better graphics card every single day. It can be very frustrating when you fork out lots of cash (around £450 to today's standard) for a top of the range graphics card. To be honest I really don't see the point in saving up that money a blowing it on that kind of graphics card when in the next week or so something better is going to be on the market and it leaves you wishing you would of waited.
Pros: good bang for your buck, plays all the latest games with ease
