ECO Green, yellow, blue, red, call it what color they want, still has a 180W max power draw, as opposed to the 210W of a standard 9800GT. HD 5750 Go Green is PCI slot powered and drastically outperforms GT9800 at a much lower power draw. At his resolution and power requirements, HD 5500 is ideal. Hate to break it to you fanboy, but AMD has the low power market segment locked up tight. Nvidia won't even release the GT 440 except to OEM (and Asus) because it is a joke compared to the HD 5670.

He's got an older PCI-e 1.0 board with a max power draw of 75W. "hurrr durrr fanboy!"

That 9800GT draws nowhere near 180W. I know this because - well, it's common sense for one, and I've had a similar setup to OPs with a 9800GT.

The Go Green is also $180, completely negating its existence. BTW, I've built systems with both GPU makers and have no preference to either of them. Looks like the only fanboy is you.

Anyways, I'll let OP decide for himself which card is best for him.

So you still reccomend the Sparkle overall ? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187091

I also noticed this card, seems like a good setup, although I dont know if my PSU could run it :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150482

Im really trying to run higher resolutions in GTA4, right know, I can only run 800*600 around 25 FPS

The 4850 is an awesome card as well; however, it draws power from a 6-pin PCI-e connector which means your PSU probably won't handle it.

I still recommend the Sparkle card as it's cheap and has an awesome power consumptions to performance ratio. Plus, you can always use it as a PhysX card when you upgrade your system.

Is there any place I can get the 1 gig version? Im really interested in this card
post #37 of 52
I'm glad fanboys don't actually research things.





Yep, the 9800GT (even underclocked and undervolted to 500MHZ core) is just too old and raggedy to compete with an ultra low power 5550 or $89 HD 5750.

Dude, that is the vanilla 9800GT! Not the Eco edition which runs ONLY off the PCI-e slot. The vanilla uses 110W, while the ECO(!!!!!!!!!!!!!<= for emphasis) runs ONLY(!!!!!!<=moar emphasis) off the 75W produced by the PCI-e slot.

The 5750 still requires a 6-pin and the 5550 is a piece of crap. Obvious troll is obvious.

Seriously, not only have I repeated myself 6 or 7 times, but you've disregarded pure common sense.

Good god, man.

Holy crap, yokel-like much?
Just going to quote this for the truth. Seriously obama afro guy, stop crying fanboy when your avid fanboyism has clearly blinded you from reading this a half dozen times.

You can try to polish that turd all day, but it's still a turd. I post you proof from a power draw test from the outlet from who has professionally reviewed thousands of VGA cards.
