I think the real problem is that opinions are a lot like *use your imagination*, everyone has one and they all stink...

That said, if I had everything to do over again(as in today) I would still buy the 8800gts(G92) + Crysis for $229 after $30MIR. As you pointed out Iandh they have released a card that does cost more to produce. So I doubt that Nvidia will be lowering prices much on the the 9800gtx, perhaps they will drop around ~$275. But then again maybe not, once it no longer has to compete with the 8800gts(EOL'd) it should stand on it's own.

Would it be nice to bench @ 850+mhz core and 2500+mhz memory? Yes. Does the increased OCability justify it's price? For me, no. I'm perfectly content with my cards performance and if that changes a vmod will at least give me a chance at achieving 850mhz or more... Do we even know if the 9800gtxs respond well to vmods(really asking, not a rhetorical)?

Heres the thread that it was on, another guy got 19K with one in the same thread.

That card is on Dry Ice. Wait until we see some v-modded 9800GTX's on dry ice and then we'll talk.

"8800GTS in dry ice can outclock 9800GTX on stock cooling"

No, really? WOW!

There is a member on this forum benching a 9800GTX at 891 core on stock cooling afaik, and the really good clocking cards haven't even started to come out of the woodwork. Imagine what that card could do on dice or LN2


You are so bent out of shape that your card is now second in line that you are dillusional.

I've already stated that I didn't think the 9800GTX was enough of an improvement for me to upgrade, it just happened that I decided to keep it after designing ramsinks for it.

The sad thing is that all of these 8800GTS owners are so bent out of shape about this, that they are acting like I am attacking the 8800GTS, an excellent card, rather than what I am actually doing... which is defending the 9800GTX.

You are now officially the third poster in this thread with a broken sarcasm detector.

mmhmm I'm not disillusional i'm just providing facts while you keep on mumbling along. Can you please some SS's of your 9800GTX doing better than 850 on the core and 2100 on the shader? I could care less about staying on top of the number scene since your card will be considered "outdated" in a month or two when the 9900GTX comes out. Your processor, motherboard, and RAM are outdated too so I don't see where you are going here.......

Mumbling? Everything I've said so far has been clear as crystal.

If you want to exchange hardware insults... at least I'm on the current generation socket.

Here, 30 seconds worth of Google:

BTW, if you wanna see shots of my personal card, you're gonna have to wait. It's at the production shop for the next few days so that the sinks can be test fit. I'll be posting them as soon as the new pump has arrived for my WC loop. I don't OC on stock cooling.

This is so dumb. All cards get killed off eventually. Fudzilla or not, this isn't news.

That GPU-Z screenshot is useless, most G92 8800GTS's can do those clocks with room to spare on the shader clock. You're socket might be current but your motherboard, cpu, and RAM are still outdated.

I've had my 8800GTX for quite some time, and I'm going to keep it for quite some time.

We'll see what happens next year.

NO THEY CAN NOT.

MOST 8800GTS's top out at around 800 core. This is probably the fifth time I've said this in this thread alone, MasterKromm even came in and reaffirmed it. Some of the off brand 8800GTS's top out at 775 or less.

How is that screenshot useless? That is the max stable OC they acheived on stock cooling, and they ran that OC in all of their tests. Seems pretty darn useful to me.

I am done arguing with you. You are just starting to make random statements in a sad, crippled effort to somehow discredit me.
