The 9800GTX is an 8800GTS with a higher clock and memory and branded as a GTX. It shouldn't even be on the market.
That's like saying Nissan shouldn't have put out the GT-R 400R. Same motor, same chassis, slightly better performance due to Nismo factory mod tweaks and a bored over motor. Go try and tell a Nissan fan that spent the extra cash for one they never should have been made.

You're obviously welcome to your opinion on whether or not the 9800GTX is worth the extra money over the 8800GTS but not whether nVidia should have made it and sold it as such.

Yeah you overlooked that Noodle

I'm not saying the GX2 isn't a power, great performer. If I had the money to blow I would have 2.

They are not, the 8800GTS(G92) is a G92-400-A2 core and the 9800GTX is a G92-420-A2 core, that is not the same even if it is similar.
BAM!

It's just my opinion. The difference between me the majority of users on this site is that i work with the stuff. They are just building their 1st or 2nd gaming PC. I have been using and testing stuff for years, and see a 100 different configurations a week.

Oh c'mon, you know better than to try and say that one G92 revision to another makes any difference. It's called production line.

Depending on how far you can OC your GX2. The one I used to own easily hit 770/2150.

The idea here is the GX2 is an amazing single-PCI-E solution. No hassle of 2 cards and it's a beast altogether.
It's Disturbing

That's like saying their is no difference between a B3 and a G0 stepping Q6600 when their quite obviously is. Besides the fact the the 9800GTX supports features that the 8800GTS(G92) does not, even if they do not influence gaming performance.

I never doubt the info you put out. Most of us appreciate the time and money you divulge to help keep the information flowing. I just think you should leave it to the fact and not put down a good option for a build just because it's not your personal favorite option.

Tri-SLI, as you know, can only be done with old, but good cards, or the 9800GTX because that's how nVidia did it. It's launch was aimed at those people with chipsets that can run Tri-SLI. However it does perform well on it's own if you want to spend the extra 40 bucks.

Quad SLI and a single GX2 have there places and are great cards.

Ultimately it comes down to the fact we can't make the choice for the OP. Buy whatever you want. If you are like most people on here you are just going to change it in the next 3 months any way. If you buy something equal to or better than a 8800GTS, SLI or not, you wont be unhappy until you get that itch for more 3DMarks or great frame rates your eyes wont even see usually.

No that's not quite the same thing....G92 core revisions are slightly higher in clocking ability, nothing to write home about.

I'm off for a bit....continue when i get back.
