Default Re: Why a GeForce GTX 280 is still much better than a 9800 GX2 or 8800 GT SLI

I'm not damage control for Nvidia, that's for sure!

I probably covered this in my other thread, but what I have stated here is my opinion only. I have used both a GeForce 9800 GX2 and an 8800 GT SLI setup in my computer. I thought the 9800 GX2 ran better, but I still had that dreaded stuttering problem. I also have another computer with an 8800 GTS 512MB which also stutters in Crysis. That game obviously needs a large amount of RAM for textures, so the 1GB of RAM on the GTX 280 really comes in handy.

Is the GTX 280 really worth the money? I would say it's not. If the card were priced at $499 or less, it would be a terrific bargain. But hey, don't expect a discount on the fastest card on the market! Still, it provides an incredible gaming experience for those who demand the best!
