    Voted "The 9800GTX Looks Good.." but I settled with the 9800GX2, which I feel wasn't a bad move. Tri-SLI = $450+ board + $400 + $400 + $400 = $1650 :thumbdn:

    But tri-sli will be faster than a single gx2 , and what mobo are you going to use with your gx2 ?

    I like the GTX but also the Gx2 , my options would be 2xGTx or 1xGX2 .

    True, but the 9800GX2 wasn't for long term arrangement and I really didn't want to go and get another SLI board. I know the true next gen card will truely tempt me in ditching what I'm about to build. So what i'm about to build by the end of the week will suffice.

    <offtopic sorry>
    decided on using a EX38-DS5, I've no need for overclocking and need two PCI slots that aren't close to the PCIe for my wi-fi and x-fi and didnt want the bells and whistles of the dq6.

    EDIT:

    Damn you DM, I'm supposed to sleep but I can't, bloody graphs and pretty pictures ;) Will sleep soon, will read half of it now and half at work when I get the chance. Cheers :thumbup:

    To be honest, I'm quite a fan of the innovative stuff that Foxconn have been displaying :) will be keen to see how they all shape up as we workout what revision silicon they're running etc.

    Damn these overclocked 8800GTS cards are overpriced
    Nvidia must be happy with all this hype about these so called 9800 series cards, when all they did was overclock their 8800GTS cards and change the name.
    This must be Nvidias April fools joke. They must be having us on if they expect people to pay anywhere near $400 for a card thats essentially an overclocked 8800GTS.

    The card Tomshardware used overclocked nicely over 800 MHz. That's a lot of raw performance indeed...

    Maybe , but considering the next release is also G92 based you may be using your Gx2 longer than you had thought.

    :thumbup:

    My GTS 512 clocks over 800 too , I think nvidia is just taking advantage of the ability of this gpu .

    Hmm I think 800 is on the upper end of what's possible. I had a XFXGTS512 and although I could bench at 800 it was only really stable at around 740 MHz. Biggest difference for sure is the RAM. That was a huge bottleneck on the GTS and the RAM also didn't overclock that much more on the GTS.

    While the SLI results look good, i think most people wouldn't be too keen on a SLI board and 2 cards

    it does beat the 8800GTX though.. a 14 month old card.. by a tiny bit :upset:

    I plan to upgrade same time next year to be precise. When the next release, what Q3 this year? I think i'll be fine :thumbup:

    edit: I don't have the luxury to upgrade to another G92 based card. I'm sure not all current G92 owners now will ditch their 14 month old cards that are just marginally slower than the 9800GTX, but as I said if the move was significant, ie. for me from 78xx series, then either a gx2 or a gtx is a good move.

    I'm also hoping future driver updates will improve things.

    I always hear this when a new card comes out, i was wondering if it has actually happened significantly in the past?

    Oh well, time for mainstream users to catchup on high-end users.:lol:

    My enthusiasm for a new graphics card are pretty low atm....need new games to justify a purchase.

    I'll probably upgrade in a month or so, at the end of the day the high performence of the 8800GTX's means that I can get pretty decent money for them..so it's not going to cost too much to upgrade...might move on the whole rig actually...go the 790i + QX9650 + 4gb memory + 9800GTX (unknown quantity)
