Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce 9800 GTX" thread

scracth that...i got access to a evga card now.

Still deciding tho...and pondering..buy a cheap 8800GT then upgrade once the gt200/etc comes out (after awhile..i am sure there will be too many issues)...

Just curious though...with the next nvidia gpu that is suppose to come out in..1-2months...the performance is gonna be like the 7 - 8 or 8-9 -.-...

I would feel violated if i buy a 9800GTX then in 2 months..nvidia release there new sets..which are 2x the performance of 9 series..

I finally saw some sense and ordered an 8800 GTX instead for 165 from overclockers uk. Phew.

Just got back with mine. Slight upgrade from my 8800 GTS. Main reason for getting it is that I had BB gift cards and such to waste so I decided what the heck. So far everything seems great. I've only been gaming with it for a small amount of time though.

Could you please back up your bios for us (or better for me?!?)

Just use Nibitor Version 4.00 http://www.mvktech.net/component/opt...rent,category/

Go to "Tools" and "Read bios into file" to save it.

This card is rather large.

With my 7900GTX:


In an Antec 900 - slightly reconfigured for more room.



My specs: XP Pro X86 / Driver version 174.74 WHQL
E4600 @ 272x11 / 2Gb Corsair XMS pc6400 @ stock speeds / 9800GTX is at stock speeds

3Dmark06 basic version, picked up around 1200 versus the 8800 GTS 640 I traded in.


Crysis @ 1680X1050, all high with 2XAA


With no AA


I'm happy with it at this early stage, coming from the 640Mb GTS for an even swap through step up.

One thing - which I cannot quantify because I'm sure exactly what to point out, textures, objects all have a cleaner look to them. Very happy with the visual quality even though fps are not through the roof.

That option was grayed out. I then tried to select the device and it said that I could not connect to the service manager. Sorry.
