Default ECS 8800GT N8800GT-256MX Review

If the price comes down as it was recently at $129.99 (after MIR), the 256MB version is easy to recommend. Performance on the ECS 8800GT 256MX card was less than the other 8800GT cards we have reviewed, mainly due to the reference clock speeds and the 256MB of frame buffer memory on the board. Once all the memory was enabled through the BIOS Flash, the card was decidedly higher performing in every benchmark. This is due to the extra memory as anti-aliasing settings add to the memory drain on a card while playing games. The 8800GT from ECS is an interesting card, as few other manufacturers just turn off extra memory as the expense is higher to produce cards with more memory than cards with less memory.
