8800GT or 8800GTS?

This is the question many of the gamers are asking. This article will help you decide as we take a closer look at XFX's 8800GTS Alpha Dog and Gainward's 8800GT card with 1024MB (1 gigabyte) of memory. Head to head benchmarking will clearly show the difference... or will it?!

.:Cases & Cooling

:.Thermaltake BigWater 760i Liquid Cooling System @ Virtual-Hideout
Overall, the Thermaltake 760i BigWater Liquid Cooling System is one efficient compact liquid cooling system. Not only does it integrate nicely in to your chassis, it'll also compliment most any system you want to assemble. Thermaltake took the time to preassemble some things and make the installation process much simpler. All these factors have made it a very easy system to use and should be simple enough for any and every user wanting to make a change in the way the CPU is cooled.

:.SilverStone SG03 SFF Case @ thetechlounge
SilverStone must be a cool place for an engineer. Not only do they obviously put engineering first, but they don't simply accommodate innovative designs; they make them their staple. Without re-working the same products again and again, SilverStone produces top-shelf enclosures for all possible form factors, from Mini-ITX mobile-on-desktop to Extended-ATX server cases. All elegant, and every one an award-winner.

:.Tuniq TX-2 Thermal Compound @ Rbmods
When we think about achieving better cooling performance, we often focus on hardware solutions. However, the quality of the thermal compound/paste that interfaces between the chips and the cooler is another critical factor in getting better cooling performance from your cooler.

:.Cooler Master COSMOS S @ techgage
In the world of computer cases, it seems that far too many do not stand out from the crowd. Cooler Master has decided to break tradition and create something special. With many features not seen before and full eATX compatibility, how well does the Cosmos S stand out?

.:Motherboards & Memory

:.Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 2GB DDR2 Memory Kit @ EOC
Now is probably the best time to invest in some quality, high-speed, high-capacity DDR2 modules while mainstream production is keeping the prices competitive and quantities available.

:.Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 @ OCModShop
Gigabyte has provided us a board that has big time functions but not a big time price. A newer series board with all the bells and whistles for a new operating system (Vista), a host of easy to use BIOS menus and some other extras that you don't find in more expensive boards. Yes, the GA-945P-S3 is a value at the price.

.:Power Supply

:.RaptoxX RT-750 and RT-1000 PSUs @ 3dgameman
Over all the Exxtreme series of power supplies from RaptoxX has proven to be a stable and reliable product. It is not surprising to see the RT-750 rate lower than the RT-1000 given the lower wattage rating, but I was surprised to see the weakness of the 12v rails on the RT-750.

:.FSP Everest 1010W @ XSReviews
FSP have created the Everest PSU which is capable of sending (just) over 1000W of energy to your ever-hungry components. It features a modular design alongside 4 PCI-e connectors and comes in shiny blue. What else could you need? Read on to find out.


:.Mtron MOBI 3000 2.5-Inch 16GB SSD MSD-SATA3025 @ BmR
Similar to the evolution towards DDR3 system memory, a gradual replacement of the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) by the Solid State Drive (SDD) is going to move very slow. The cost of purchase for SSD's is the primary cause, since most drives cost more than an entire computer system.


:.XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog XXX Edition @ Elite Bastards
As you might expect given the protracted naming scheme of this board, the Alpha Dog XXX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is all about factory overclocks while sticking with NVIDIA's reference cooler for this particular part.
