    Gamers who can't afford video cards based on Nvidia Corp.'s blazing-fast flagship GeForce 8800 GTX can now get the same support for the newest DirectX 10 games at a lower price. Nvidia's partners are now shipping PCI Express x16 cards that combine the new GeForce 8800 GTS graphics processing unit (GPU) with 320MB of video memory at prices ranging from $299 to $349.

    Compared to the 8800 GTX, the GTS has 96 instead of 128 stream processors -- compatible with Windows Vista's DirectX 10 unified shader instruction set, which lets the same pipeline serve as either a vertex or pixel shader -- and a 320- instead of 384-bit memory interface. Its 500MHz core clock and 800MHz memory clock are roughly 87 percent as fast as the GTX's, but it has 100 percent of the top-of-the-line GPU's Shader Model 4 capabilities for new highs in realistic graphics and film-quality gaming effects. Designed to boost the installed base of DirectX 10 hardware, the new 320MB 8800 GTS cards join 640MB siblings priced between $399 and $449 and 768MB GeForce 8800 GTX boards from $599 to $649.
