9800GX2 = Returned to the store. - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Interesting. I'm in the process of building a new system using the 9800gx2. Now you guys have got me wondering if it was a good choice.I think it will still be a HUGE step up for me, going from 7950gt to 9800Gx2, but for 6 Ben Franklin's I'm not so sure. What to do What to do? I still have to wait for PC Power and Cooling to fedex me the stupid 6to8 pin PCI-e adapter anyway.A $10 adapter holding up my $2500 build!!!

I went from 7900GTX sli to one 8800GTX and it was a big step up for me.

And I was running 8800GTX sli and sold one 6months ago, after reading this I might get another since they are cheaper now and I still have a DD water block for it.

In game benchmark #2: Bioshock demo - DX10 - Max settings. Taken with Fraps.

2008-04-07 21:46:40 - bioshock
Frames: 32836 - Time: 143163ms - Avg: 229.361 - Min: 120 - Max: 426

My thoughts: I never played this game before so I thought it would be interesting to try out the demo for benchmarking purposes. I played from the beginning right after the plane crash till I got to the elevator, though I took my time doing it, looking at the plane reckage with fire and explosions, swimming and walking around. Its a good looking game, though the 9800GX2 seems to be a bit overkill at these game settings and clock speeds.

Edit: After playing on a bit more the frames became a bit more intense but still very managable.
