Ok I just set my fan to 100% all the time not that much noise and here is the thingg to do to bring temps down put a fan directly under the card blowing across the bottom of it cut my idle tempt from 70 to 50 and load from almost 80 to 67. I can run my GTX at get this 650/1600/1080 the memory is the only thing holding it back I like the shader overclock normal is 1350. I use 169.25 driver and Rivatuner 2.06. I will say I don't run that overclock all the time but nice to know it can. Nothing out there can beat it minus the Ultra so wohoo :)

8800GTS 512 beats GTX in some games and the difference isnt even noticeable BUT :

in some other games the 8800GTX beats the GTS 512 and the difference is noticeable
and also if u crank up the resolution and add some AA, then 8800GTX beats the 8800GTS 512

Generally speaking though, the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB’s performance is better than the original 640MB GTS and the relatively new 8800 GT and on-par with the GeForce 8800 GTX at lower resolutions. Crank up the resolutions, however, and the GTX (or Ultra) is still the king of the hill.
