hmm, volt modding seems a bit complex for the 9800gtx but you can hit like 900MHZ and above. on the stock cooling mine never hits above 55C so it stays pretty cool.

No i dont think so. Considering the 4870 uses GDDR5.

You can, but only at lower resolutions.. The GDDR5 gives the HD 4870 gives a huge edge..


You cannot match the HD 4870 unless you get a good water cooler and OC the living crap out of it (on the 50)

My 9600GT with the G94 chipset was a nice overclocker, I was pushing around 838 MHz on the core before I noticed artifacts at 840 MHz, and on the stock cooler and off of the reference card card at 650 MHz factory, mine was a piece from the good batch , I'd love to see what i could push with water cooling on it..... hmm

also, for some reason (it may be a misread but it seems my shaders on my 9800 GT are magnificent (check the middle # in my sig)

hmm the shaders on my GTX will do close to 2400MHZ but there are a few artifacts every now and then.

hmm well I wasn't sure, just not to keen on what exactly would be high for shader clocks, nowadays most people just look at how many shaders there are, and I didn't push with the shaders at all they just adjusted to the DDR3 speeds, maybe I can push them a bit further

hmm, well i dont recommend trying for 2400mhz because the 9800gtx's were mad overclockers compared to the rest of the g92, just go for like 2100.

yeh, I was gonna go for the BE 9800gtx+ but then the 4850 hit the market and I decided to stand back and wait with my 9800 GT in hand. anyways sorry I'm not trying to hijack the thread, with that said I'd say he could see a nice increase with the 9800GTX and like you said
