Default Replacement for 9800GX2

Hi there.

Thought I'd better ask the people who are in the know, my knowledge of nVidia graphics has fallen by the wayside a little since we stopped building our own PCs.

A client has had his 9800GX2 card fail (was a very nice Asus card) and now is looking for a card of equivalent spec - hesays the old card coped fine with what he was doing.

Can anyone help or point me toward a good benchmarking site?

Cheers

A 9800GX2 is roughly equivalent to two 8800GTs, so I'd say a good bet would be a GTX 460 1GB.

Thanks for that, goes along the lines of what I was thinking.
