OFFICIAL:NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX/+ & GTS250 Owners Thread - Page 79

post #781 of 815
Anyone shed any light on hot hot is acceptable for an 9800GTX? At stock I'm hitting 66degC, while gaming, 57degC when idle. Not to sure when overclocked, haven't clocked since last format.

While i am here, anyone used the Accelero S1 Rev. 2 with a 9800GTX? Comments.

Switched out a GTX 460 768MB recently for a new £60 GTS 250/9800GTX+ 1GB (I couldn't pass up a good deal like that, even if it was just gonna be a backup card) and believe it or not, it is a major upgrade for DirectX 9 & older games as well as video playback from the 460 (the GTX 460 has a hitchy framerate even on my quad core Phenom rig due to it clocking down during multiple videos or older games, this trusty old G92 doesn't). I give props to Nvidia for this card, because it is the last efficient card they built and with decent drivers to boot (before they started cutting corners with their 200/400 series and low power 3D modes), I can't say the same for my 460 struggling to run even Source games without a freeze or stutter lag...

Feel free to sign me up if you want, although CPUZ/GPUZ is definitely misreading the specs of my card (it is a 100% 55nm version and not 65nm) also it can hit 870MHz stable but not on my current PSU (it managed this on my friend's Seasonic Gold 560W PSU). Current overclock of roughly 800MHz is also stable.

Good deal there mate, though I got over twice the framerate from a GTS 250 512MB, to a 460 768MB, well over in most cases.
BF2142/BF2, Civ5, C&C: 3/Red Alert 3/4, list goes on.

Either way, the G92 is a solid GPU, and handles a helluva lot thrown at it. biggrin.gif

Also incorrect readings with GPU-Z is commonplace, don't worry about it. You can check for yourself on the GPU itself, 65nm are G92, 55nm are G92b, but all 9800GTX+ are 55nm anyway. 9800GTX were the 65nm units that some were "re-branded".
Also what brand card have you got mate? Need that to add you to the list, with a GPU-Z screenie please. smile.gif

That's my one right there, except mine has 1x 6 pin connector instead of two and a clockrate of 756MHz instead of 750MHz (so it's definitely 55nm). It's brand new but it has no warranty any more which is the only downfall, but then again 99 times out of 100 I never use the warranty of anything I buy (usually either return it to the store immediately after finding the fault or replace it). I've tested this one thoroughly though to make sure, ran it under Furmark for almost 2 days straight with no artifacts. Anyway, as far as reliability goes, I'd rather buy a discontinued/unsupported card from BFG than a supported lifetime warranty card from XFX. And fortunately for us Brits, we get a year warranty on any retail electronics product with the shop in case it stops functioning properly, so that's good to know.

The biggest increase seems to come from memory-hungry games though. All I play on my sig rig are DirectX9 games at 1440x900 and I'm astounded by the number of games my GTX 460 768MB ran out of memory for (check out my attached screenshots, I was pretty surprised myself). Although you said your framerate doubled, chances are it was probably due to the extra memory on the 460 more than anything, the difference between my GTX 460 and GTS 250 seems much smaller now with a 1GB frame buffer. Anything that's overly shader hungry like Crysis gets a big increase with the 460 (up to double the framerate, you're right about that), in everything else or where the 460 lacks VRAM, the GTS 250 seems about the same. I've learned my lesson: my next GPU will have to come with no less than 4GB VRAM.

Also there are a few games the GTX 460 had driver problems with, on both my Vista quad core rig and my single core XP (Killing Floor being one of them). I hope to put my 460 to use later on in my next rig for a while, after which I'm also hoping it will get use as a PhysX card or something.

Anyways, all that aside, I'll happily join the club, thanks. wink.gif
