8800GTX because it has a 384 bit bus vs 256bit on the 9800 and it also has more ram which helps when using AA at such a large resolution

The 8800GTX would be better for that resolution for sure

I dont know about you guy's but I am getting higher score's with 9800GX2 Superclocked on 3DMark than with my 8800 Ultras! GX2=18,486 Ultra's=17,040 with same rig. Resolution at 1920x1080p or 1920x1200. All I can say is dont comment on the card if you dont own one!

That is not entirely true.

When AA and AF are on the 8800 Ultra beats the GX2. A single Ultra is still better then a single 9800GX2.

The 98-- series is a complete joke. What will be the upgrade to the 88-- is the 99--.

What's also nicer with 1 Ultra or GTX is the fact that you don't have to run a USB card or a seperate card internally to use a second monitor since the GX2 uses SLI.

Isn't the 9800gtx cheaper than the 8800gtx? well here in australia its like 120 dollars cheaper. So I would suggest you get the 9800gtx even though the 8800gtx is a really good card but all in all you are after value/price/performance ratio. The 8800gtx is worth it but not the extra amount quoted above.

Cheers mate, I hope you figure out what you want. But if I was you I would opt for the 9800gtx

8800GTX, unless you are into Bluray stuff. but for gaming, no question, 8800GTX.

Nah you can do BluRay fine with a 8800GTX. If your running a card like you're not going to need the onboard decoding, this is why nVidia kept it off of the GTX and Ultra.
