Best Single Video Card To Buy? 260GTX or 9800GTX+? - Page 2

post #11 of 41
Wait for the OC edition of the 4850. As it also will get a better fan.

im leaning heavily towards the 9800gtx+, I mean the amount of money for the 280gtx for the gains doesn't equal out for me. I really just wanted to get an idea of what you guys thought about a 260GTX over the 9800gtx+

Are you only considering Nvidia? I love my 8800 GTS 512 but if this is for a new build buy a 4870 over the 9800 GTX+. You can overclock a regular 9800 GTX or even 8800 GTS 512 to about the same performance level of the 9800 GTX+. If I hadn't bought my G92 chip my next card would have been either a 4850 or a 4870 with a rebate or price drop. I think unless you are looking at two chips on one PCB or the GTX280 ATI's new cards are where its at.

well I found an EVGA 9800GX2 on buy.com with a coupon for $409, I think that would be a better buy than the 9800GTX+ SLI

The 9800GTX+ in SLI do better than a single 9800GX2

I like AMD better, for for his unlimited bugdet atm, I would get a 780i and a gtx280. Then when he has the money, SLI, then Tri-SLI. I've seen a benchmark of it playing crysis averaging I think 70fps. A single gtx280 killed CF 4870, but then again Crysis is coded horribly.
Or
If your on a budget, get a 4870 x2 like someone previsuly mentioned with August coming. Or if you cant wait, 4870, then CF a 4870 x2 later?
