Which ones better? 9800GT or 8800GT?

If 9800GT then why is it cheaper than the 8800GT? Shouldn't it be more expensive than the compared video card? (Im not complaining :grin: I was just wondering why )

Re: Which card is better in overall performance? 9800GT or 8800GT

The 9800 is a rebaged 8800 , prices vary arround the internet. Their performance is very similar , the 9800 will edge out the 8800 mostly becuase it's pci-e 2.0 which will usually give 15% more speed.

Another question about the 9800GT

Can I play Crysis in maximum settings with 9800GT?

I am sorry, but the answer is NO, you cannot. There is no way for that card to handle Crysis at max settings even 9800GTX+ in SLi can't do it. Get the GTX 260 C216 it is under $200 now on newegg and that card is much much better than 9800GT.
Also, performance wise 1x GTX 260 c216 vs 2x 9800GTX+ in SLi, GTX 260 c216 perform and feel smoother than 9800GTX+ in SLi in Crysis or in any game. I know this for the fact. I'd tried this myself. In fact, my older setup were 2x 9800GTX+ in SLi, and now I have 260 and I am happy with my current setup. I am waiting for 300series (DX11)

Too bad...my budget would only go for a 9800GTX (if I sacrificed the Intel Q9550) or the 9800GT. Ill guess Ill just go with the 9800GT.

Thanks for the replies!
