I'm looking to get a 9800GTX

Which would be a good choice? Please have in consideration my system specs.
Also, budget isn't a problem. What's more important is which gives me my best bang for buck?

What is SSC?

SSC = Super Super Clocked Edition.

Well, I really suggest you get this card

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=56&subcat=927

You'd be saving yourself a lot of money, for near identical performance. The 9800GTX is very similar to the 8800GTS 512 (though not identical for the potential flamers, there are few differences). But when it comes down to the raw power of the cards, they're neck and neck.

Do you have 60 pounds for marginal performance increase? It's up to you.

If you get a vanila 9800GTX, you can flash it to SSC and it will be overclocked for you
post #5 of 25
If you want to get a 9800gtx, get a stock/standard one. Then use tools such as rivatuner to oc it. SSC is a super super overclocked edititon. For example, evga 9800gtx
Stock->675/1688/1100
SC->700/1728/1100
KO->738/1826/1125
SSC->770/1944/1150.

Quite, but the GTS is cheaper. If you were truely on a budget, the 8800GT would've been the best pick.

While this is true, sometimes you can get royally screwed by a card that doesn't like those clocks >_<
