I have the 9800GTX - and although it is a great card....2 x 8800GT's or higher will certainly perform better then a single 9800GTX.

A pair of 8800GS's in SLI and overclocked perform at or better then a single 9800GTX. The major difference though is if you add a 2nd 9800GTX later - It will beat out a pair of 8800's.

I posted a screenie of FPS scores from 3dmark06 in my review of the 9800GTX in my sig...check that out for a full explanation.

I Dont know if someone mentioned this already, but you might want to wait a couple weeks for the 9800GTX+ to come out, then make a decision.

I posted a screenie of FPS scores from 3dmark06 in my review of the 9800GTX in my sig...check that out for a full explanation.
but the problem with 3dmark06 and vantage is that they dont detect SLI. i get 10000-12000 roughly from my computer with 3dmark saying that i dont have a 2nd 8800gt.

basically, the 9800gtx beats the 8000gt sli for benching in 3dmark.

if someone has found a fix for this, leme know. ive got the newest verison with the hotfix and still no sli detected.

but as a user, 8800gt sli rocks. me and my friend benched his 9600gt's vs my 8800gt's in my machine. ran a 1 minute time demo on creek in COD4, here were the results:

My Little Pwney (9600GT SLI)

Minimum - 51
Maximum - 229
Average - 77.226

Tweak17emon (8800GT SLI)

Minimum - 57
Maximum - 336
Average - 106.354

thats full settings, full AA, 1680x1050 res, no OC on both to make it fair. just another reason to buy the 8800gt SLI.

1440x900 is the max resolution it be set at.

basically, the 9800gtx beats the 8000gt sli for benching in 3dmark.

if someone has found a fix for this, leme know. ive got the newest verison with the hotfix and still no sli detected.

It's not that it's not detecting the SLI...as the scores will definately go up with 2 in SLI...it's just not reflecting 2xGPU's in the details section. When I was running SLI with my 8800's - the scores went up by about 2500 or so...even though the details section only listed 1 card.


To the original post though...the only benefit I see you gaining from going up to a 9800GTX is future SLI. It's a fact that 8800GT's in SLI will beat out a single 9800GTX....but also remember that 2x9800GTX's will beat out your 8800's in SLI.

If you are just looking for really really good performance - and it's n0ot that important that this set-up get 51 FPS and that one gets 54 FPS...the 8800's are less expensive and provide extremely good performance.
