9800GX2 vs 8800GTX SLi - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Stick with the two 8800s, in some cases they will perform better...and now you probly wouldn't even get 600$ from selling two used 8800GTXs.

9800 GX2 Quad SLI vs. 8800 GTX SLI


We included the GeForce 8800 GTX SLI in this evaluation because of our readers asking for it, but also because two GeForce 8800 GTX video cards will cost you close to the same as one GeForce 9800 GX2. In this evaluation we have used two 9800 GX2s which cost an incredibly high $1200. As you can see from our evaluation of the gamers’ actual experience, 8800 GTX SLI can match and best experience provided by GeForce 9800 GX2 Quad SLI, with the exception of Crysis.


The GeForce 9800 GX2 GPUs have a higher core frequency, shader frequency, and memory frequency than a GeForce 8800 GTX. However, the GeForce 8800 GTX has more RAM (768MB) and a wider memory bus (384-bit.) Those are the only two major performance differences between the GPUs. This evaluation has proven that those GTX memory features will equate to a better gaming experience in Call of Duty 4 and Jericho by allowing smoother and more consistent framerates at high resolutions. The GX2’s GPUs have more shader horsepower, but in these newer games like Jericho and COD 4, that doesn’t matter when you start bringing up the resolution and factor in AA.


Crysis was the only game where Quad SLI showed a gameplay advantage thanks to its tremendous amount of shader horsepower. However, even with that, Quad SLI downright choked in Crysis when we tried to apply even 2X AA. Quite simply, 512MB of RAM and the narrowed memory bus are prime suspects for bottlenecking the GeForce 9800 GX2 Quad SLI.

Basically the GX2 is only good for people who have a non-SLI motherboard, If you have one GTX your best upgrade is a second GTX assuming you have SLI mobo. If you are building from scratch, SLI GT or SLI GTS(G92) are your best bets. Everyone who has Quad GX2 should feel like score whores lol, or you own a 30" monitor.

Stick with 8800GTX SLI - that is one of the most powerful setups currently known to man.

Does anyone know any reviwes where they compare them?
Well it costs a lot of money to stay on top of computers. I would personaly stick with the 8800's unless he wants the GX2 very bad. And he has a killer PSU
