Question about 9800gtx

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was looking at getting one of the evga 9800gtx models but the more I read the more it seems I should either wait until the new models come out in july or pick up a 8800 now. I'm building a new machine with a Q6700 and looking to go vista 64 with 8gb of ram. I pretty much just do gaming and have a radeon x1600 pro I can use until the new ones hit if needed.

Just wanted some opinions if the 9800 is worth it over the 8800 or if the 9900 series is worth waiting for?

Thanks in advance.

Edit, did some more research and I think I answered my own question, doesn't seem that the 9800 will do anything for me so i'll just save the money and pickup a 8800.

The 9800GTX isn't that great of a performer. Reviews show that it only gives about 5 FPS more than the G92 8800GTS during gaming. A real stinker of a card and black eye for nVidia if you ask me.

I tend to dissagree....its a great performer with a good price , just played the grid demo now , with a single gpu (it doesent support sli) , max settings , 16xAA , 1600*200 fps = 55avg......


it outperforms a 8800GTX , 8800GTS , 8800GT , and if you overclock it , it can and will beat an ultra.....

soo its argubably the most powerfull , gpu , obviosly the other cards i mentioned they are all very close , but you cant get any gpu thats more than 10% faster atm

Meh...I stick by my earlier post. It's not the monster card that everybody was hoping for and I feel nVidia dropped the ball on it.

Its not worth the money, though I would like to have had one over a 8800GTS, just because it can handle a bit higher overclocks. Go for an 8800GTS and overclock that sucka.

I would get it if it was the same price as a 8800GTS G92. But no, it isn't worth the money for it right now.
