GeForce 8800 GT Review
GeForce 8800 GT is a high-end GFX based on the 65nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G92 Core and offers 112 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of GDDR3. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates 900MHz. It will consume no more than 105 Watt.
GeForce 8800 GT was added later to the GeForce 8000 Series and was manufactured with an upgraded G8X Core known as G92 (later used on the GeForce 9000 Series). It's manufactured with a smaller technology (65nm VS 90nm) and therefore heats less and consumes less power. GeForce 8800 GTS 512 also falls in the same situation but performs better thanks to the extra shading units. However, it also heats more and consumes more power.
Today's modern demanding games can be played at medium (most) or high settings (some) smoothly. However, DirectX 11 based games aren't supported and its performance will decrease substantially, as the resolution increases.

This is amazing. Played through pretty much all games until 2011, 2012 and even most games now (Battlefield 3,Skyrim,Far Cry 3,Rage….) are still playable on medium! At least for me anyway :)

Legendary video card. Played through 2008-2012. Every game worked. I remember a GTX 280 was 2x faster than an 8800gt.

what would be a good CPU and GPU to upgrade to with approximately $350-$400? Its for games like bf3, asc3, gta iv, Hitman: Absolution, Sniper Elite V2.
And by the way my current specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit&#60br
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHZ&#60br
