Hello GeForce GTX 280, GOODBYE STUTTERS!!!
 
I just put my new eVGA Superclocked GeForce GTX 280 in my main computer, and I'm astounded by the improvements in gameplay I'm experiencing over my GeForce 9800 GX2. I play Crysis at 1920X1200 with everything on HIGH. It used to stutter fiercely in certain maps, especially those with a lot of textures. Now it hardly stuuters at all, even in the most texture-intensive areas. This is of course due to the 1GB of onboard memory and the 512-bit memory bus vs. the 256-bit bus in the 9800 GX2. I'm going to try some other games to see how much that extra memory makes a difference. Right now I'm getting anywhere from 35-40 FPS in Crysis. These are sustained framerates!!! My 9800 GX2 used to jump all over the place because of the stuttering. Let's see how other games fare.

Bottom line: If you have the $$$ and your system can handle it, the GTX 280 ROCKS!!! This card is NO FLOP!!!! Yes, it's ULTRA-EXPENSIVE, but you get what you pay for.

I'm in the process of stepping up my 9800GX2 to a 280. After using dual monitors for about 10 years now and not being able to thanks to SLI, combined with all the stuttering the GX2 gives me in games, I think it's worth the $77.

well it was probably stuttering because the 9800GX2 only has 512MB useable ram

Yup, I highly agree, for me the biggest difference was WiC, huge difference in smoothness there.

Just look @ the review on this site. The min frames are great on the GTX 280. Mine should be installed late today.
