Haven't built a PC in a few years and the time away has made me rusty when comparing components. I had a EVGA 8800GT 512mb on my old PC, when looking to build a new budget-PC I bought a newer EVGA 450 GTS from a friend for $70, which looked like a good price. I can still find 8800GT cards online for around $60. I know the obvious differences are the 1GB memory vs 512mb, and a higher core clock, but my question is if there are any other big differences between the cards? And have I upgraded by getting the newer 450 GTS? I can find another 450 GTS for around $97, and I have a newer SLi capable board. Thought about doing that as well.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
