Is this too good to be true?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have been planning on getting this 8800GTS for my new rig, when I just saw this OC'd 9800GTX cheaper than that stock clocked 8800GTS!

Is that a good card, or not?

The 9800 GTX has faster memory clocks and core clock speeds.

the 9800gtx is marginally better than the 8800gts...so if its cheaper then go ahead and it get it. it seems to work well for me. i get about 35fps in crysis at high 1600x1200

It's true, really.

However for the same money you can get a Radeon 4850 which will outperform it.



Jus' sayin....

Sweet. How loud are the fans on the 9800GTX?

Eh... if it's that cheap for what I'm getting, I guess I can live with the fans being a little loud while gaming (and if it gets too bad, I'll just use Rivatuner to turn 'em down a little)

Thanks

The 9800GTX+ is NOT worth waiting for. The core clocks are not much higher.

The 9800GTX is very good for overclocking and in gaming it never really reaches 100% fan speed so you don't have to worry about it getting too hot. In rivatuner you can set it to 80% when it reaches a certain point and it won't be too loud while still cooling very well.

I bet the GTX+ will also be a bit more expensive. Not really worth especially since it doesn't save on that much energy either.

It really is up to you.
