GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB Roundup
While we are talking about higher priced hardware, the EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB KO ACS3 certainly leads in
performance in all of our tests. At a price lower than that of a stock 8800 GTS 640MB, this 8800 GTS 320MB is
a good option for people who want spend less than $400 without sacrificing performance and quality at resolutions
at or below 1920x1200. While MSRP is $350, we expect the street price of the ACS3 320MB card to be a little lower. The major advantage of the 320MB hardware is its low price and high performance, and there is only so much of a premium that can be charged before it stops making sense to look at the lower memory part.
The MSI, and EVGA SuperClocked card performed nearly the same, but from what we have found the EVGA card is the
cheapest of the three coming in at between $300 and $310. The lower price of the EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB
KO ACS3 edges out the MSI card, but we won't count it out, as prices change all the time. If you can find the
MSI card for between $300 and $310, it is just as good an option as the EVGA SuperClocked. For this reason, we
are giving both the MSI NX8800 GTS 320MB OC and the EVGA SuperClocked cards our Gold Editor's Choice award.
They are reasonably overclocked versions of the standard 8800 GTS 320MB reference design, with a price that is
only slightly higher than stock.
