Thats true, some of the benches look good for it.

I just pulled the trigger though on the $199.99 EVGA GTX. My plan will be to use their step up program in a couple of months when the prices on the GTX 260 and 280 come down.

Its a win win for me the way I see it.

You should man, just think.......in 2-3 months drivers for the GTX 260 and 280 will be much better and any other issues such as the current temp issue should be fixed. If we are luck we might even be able to step up to the 55nm GTX 280 or 260!

Thank goodness I resisted the temptation.

These 9800GTX's overclock a good bit better than the 8800GT's right? I know it will probably not be much of an upgrade over what I have right now but thats not really my reasoning for getting this new card either.

I figure I would do best to get out of my 8800GT right now before the prices drop to much, I only paid $150.00 for it and knowing Ebay I will get every bit of that right back. LOL.

Ok I am seeing people that have hit 800mhz on the core without much trouble on this exact same 9800GTX. That will actually be a very nice bump over my 8800GT which maxes at 712 on the core.

I bet the shaders and mem go a lot higher too.

I like the idea of being able to see the percentage difference/advantage for each card compared to the others when you mouse over them in this computerbase review .. pretty neat feature IMO!

This one chart is enough to totally put me off. Unless they sort this with a driver these cards would be no good for me as I play FSX quite a bit.
