Replacements for 9800GT

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I havnt been into the hardware world for a while so I dont know whats good for my money anymore. My EVGA 9800GT recently died. It turns on but when it seems to heat up it gets a bunch of vertical squiggly blue, red, and green lines and it freezes up when it has to process anything 3D.

Are there any comparable cards these days to the 9800GT and 8800GT for ~$100 or less than?

For 100 or less you can get a GTX 460 on the market place.

I had my 9800 GT's in SLI for about 2-3 years. Those cards got so much use out of them before they both went out on me within roughly 2 weeks of each other, unfortunately I am not sure of any cards under 100 that are equivalent to the 9800 GT. I was reading an article regarding the hardware that Steam collects and it said something to the effect that the 9800 GT use to be the most popular GPU used to run Steam games and now it is the GTX 560. Seems as if I upgraded with everyone else to the GTX 560, they can be a bit pricey though, but even 1 of them is better performance than 2 9800 GT's and would be under 200.

EVGA 550Ti $109 (this is with the MIR, $119 without), this should be a bump up from the 9800 series.

A GTS 450 is about 25% faster than a 9800GT.

 

Zotac GTS 450 costs $100 (after mail-in rebate).

you can bake your 9800gt and use it more. Put it in the oven @ 400f for 10min and if you can use no clean liquid solder flux under the gpu and ram chips.

I'm pretty sure that the steam statistics count both the GTX 560 and the GTX 560 Ti as being the same card, so those statistics are a bit deceiving. nVidia also has the advantage of having 1 card in a performance bracket where AMD has 2 (6850/6870 vs GTX 560), so AMD will naturally be pulling lower percentages per card. Not that this really means anything, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Anyway, I'd suggest the 6790. It tends to beat the 550 Ti.

$115 after rebate with free shipping and Dirt 3.

If your on a budget get a gtx460 1GB card or even find a deal on a 560TI. Both cards will be light speed to your 9800gt.
