You would have this guy discard a perfectly good 8800GT in favor of a rough 10% increase in performance... that's not very logical and to begin with his issue is that after W7 he is noticing decrease in performance when things should be around the same as they were previously which lead him to question the drivers
gts is a better 9800 gtx .so how you work out 10% .omg you really need to test a 8800gt .gts 250 is a high quality card based on a 9800 gtx but with a better performance i think .
ALso a 8800 gtx struggles on some games at high res and gts 250 smashes them apart.
I say 55 % increases rather than 10% .
Honestly 8800 gt is a bad card but thats just my view.

Also the gts has 128 stream processors or around that number...you are mis leading this person put your comments right please

LOL.. 55% ... You wouldn't even get a complete 55% if you took two of your graphics card and ran them in SLI

Be realistic man.. It's a 10-15 percent increase... Which would leave it in the range of only moderately noticeable to the average computer enthusiast.. I know you use the card so your a bit bias but be realistic here

Actually, it looks like it might have been heat issues. Though the temps didn't look critical, it does look like my system underclocked the CPU and graphics due to heat. I took it to the shop and blew out a lot of dust. The processor was badly impacted, the PSU was full of dust, I took the fan shroud off the video card and blew the air ports out. GPU temp is now 47.5c at idle.

I am getting 60 fps in most places in WoW and can drop to 10 fps when the area is very crowded. About the same for Second Life. So now the performace is only slightly slower than it used to be. Not enough to matter.

I also uninstalled/reistalled the latest NV drivers. That also made a huge difference in all around performance. So I also had some driver issues, it would seem.

On a side note: the 8800GT is a very good entry-level gaming card, just ask Tom's Hardware. I'm not upgrading the card until I start building a gaming system. I'm getting away from AMD and going with the Core i7 and I'll go with SLI this time with a couple of good Nvidia cards. Ati makes good cards, but they always seem to have trouble writing drivers.

Thanks for the help.

If you were really running at 16xFSAA, that seems really excessive to me. In some games, FSAA is a big framerate killer; in others it's OK. But I never use more than 4X.

I've actually turned off anti-aliasing. I don't really notice the difference in quality and the speed is much better.

Well, the numbers don't support your view. The GTS 240 is basically a 9800 GTX+ clone and the performance on benchmarks is almost the same.

You like your new card, you're excited about it, everything "seems" faster. I'm happy you are happy, but the the math doesn't support your claims; sorry.

Eh.. Who really cares... Benchmarks do not support your claim of 50-55% but i won't dispute you any further
