well MMORPG Recommended system is 95% of the time the minimum.

the first few weeks its released its fine, but once you have 10000 people on the server all spread out, you end up getting 50-100 people in towns and such, and it seriously ruins fps, even in recent systems

Okay, thank you for the replies. I think I may have found the one I want.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130334

Now I have some questions about this.

1) will it fit my current Mobo? EDIT : Sorry, my motherboard is a Giga-Byte GA-m57SLI-S4

2) Will I have enough power to run it?

3) Is it a good card? I'm reading the reviews and everyone is real happy with it. The only con I see a lot is that it's long so I'm hoping I can fit it in my computer.


***For my PSU.. these are the numbers I'm reading on the side of it.

AC -115V -10A 60Hz 230V 5A 50Hz
DC +3.3V +5v +12v1 +12v2 -12V +5VSB
MAX 34A 40A 16A 17A 0.8A 2.5A

What kind of case do you have? You should make sure the card will fit. The 9800 is something like 10 inches long.
