Not this one though. It's the same bit and Stream processing as well. It's the same...however, maybe you're right. The clocks per cycle may differ as well.

I have a 500W PSU though, idk if I could handle the 9800GTX or 8800GTX... If I get one of the GTs I will probably get the 8800gt.

What PSU do you have? And the HD 4850 is faster than both the 9800GTX and the 8800 ULTRA yet consumes less power than both. Stop being a fanboy, it'll get you nowhere.

It's a 500W that came with my case... Maybe I should pick up a 600W decent brand off ebay or something? I dont think I have the cash for it now though...

I think I may spring for this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/nVidia-eVGA-9800...QQcmdZViewItem
$189 free shipping. Seller has 17 ratings, but paypal is safe.

Or this one is $175
http://cgi.ebay.com/EVGA-e-GeForce-9...QQcmdZViewItem
But shipping will end up being like $15 more from Canada and a little slower probably?

I think my 500w should handle this card, the 9800gtx uses less power then the 8800gtx anyway correct?

Ok, found a better deal. $179 before rebate.

Yeah, I know, thats the one I got linked to up there. It comes to $202 with tax and shipping from tigerdirect, so after $30 mail in, $172. The EVGA on ebay is $189, so is it worth the extra $17 for EVGA over PNY and 2 day shipping free with the one on ebay?

Ok, thought I'd mention, I bought an 8800GTS 512mb off ebay. New EVGA, the slightly overclocked one. Gonna OC it more myself of course. I read it almost identical to the 9800GTX, like 3-5fps lower in Crysis, so, it was worth the money saved.
Best part of it all... it only cost $130 shipped on ebay!! Seller had rating of over 800 with 100% positive. So I cant wait til this sucker comes in the mail!!

Default Re: 9800gt vs 8800gt

did the link ever mentioned anything that said no DOA?
because if it didnt, and it got damaged along with shipping, might be hard to get the money back.....
unless you like paid for shipping insurance or something.
