8800GTX vs. 9800GTX?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is the 9800GTX much faster, I wouls SLi them if I was to upgrade, because I hear they scale amazingly well in SLi, far better than the GTX.

There isn't any G80 GTXs on there but you can see an 80% improvement in SLI GTXs vs a single GTX. I want to say that's a higher improvement than we have seen in most systems moving from 1 G80 GTX to two.

If you are asking then you know you just want to do it and need a couple people to back you. I think SLI GTX G92s will be very fun and powerful. You can prolly sell your GTXs on here for 300 each and then buy the G92s for 350 or so and not pay that much to upgrade.

If you have the cash just do it.

I want to see a 3dmark benchmark, then I will run my own, when I get 3dmark reinstalled.
You can get the BFG ones here in the UK for £224 excluding postage, I wouldnt have to pay much more if I sold my G80's.

Its not because I want to do it, I just wanted to hear peoples opinions on it, cheers.

You have an amazing set of cards there. The 8800GTX pwn face.

You will see improvement on say 1024x1024, due to the higher clock speeds.

On higher resolutions, however, the GTX will perform better.

The choice really is yours, do you want to spend the money on a very close performance? I wouldn't. But it's up to you.
Bye Bye 775

I used to think the same about the extra mem and higher resolutions but the G92 GTXs in that review are pulling 20k at 1920x1200 which is on par with just about any GTX setup I can think of.

I would keep the 8800GTX for now. The 9800GTX may OC better but in high resolution, the extra ram from 8800GTX is better. 9800GTX SLI is about the same as G92 8800GTS SLI. So, it should be about what you have now.
