The 8800 is perfectly fine for the average PC gamer. Unless you play with cranked up resolutions and AA, AF etc on max, it'll be fine.Hm...
I could, perhaps, get a 9800, but I don't know if it'd be worth it.
I've heard an 8800 can max most games nowadays(bar Crysis. Damned thing is just too ugly optimized). This is getting off-topic fast, but hey, this rather than a load of new topics.
Were I to get an 8800 GT, should I get a 512 MB one or higher? I know for a fact that most of the time GPUs are limited by their speed and never get to use the higher FBs(I just don't know if that's the case with the 8800 GT and say, 1 GB of FB).
EDIT: And Interverse's post now makes me feel like crap. Stupid country. A 500W PSU is roughly 50-100 USD here. I think I can get a 1 GB 8800 GT for about 180 USD over here.
Because people running those PSU tests with professional equipment can't be wrongactually it has one the other one is supplied through the molex converter
and by the way i run 2 HDDs and 2 optical drivers:wub:
something about the power usage on the INTERNET is just fake
I had a different list, but that's a good one too. And yeah, I knew Corsair and Antec were built by someone else, just didn't know PC Power and Cooling was too...interesting. I should start investing in Seasonic :lol:PC Power & Cooling doesn't make their own PSUs. Their current Silencers are made by SeaSonic, and their old Silencers were made by someone else. Their Turbo Cool line is made by yet someone else. SeaSonic also makes PSUs for Corsair, and Antec.
The list you may be thinking of may be one a type of chart where you find the builder based on the UL number?
