Default 9800gt vs 9800gtx vs 9800gtx+

If you were building on a budget and were sticking with nvidia which would you choose

9800gt $95 after MIR
9800gtx $150
9800gtx+ $165 after MIR

I'm not sure if the performance gain is worth the extra money.

Well obviously 9800GTX and 9800GTX+ are the two best... however for their price I wouldn't consider paying $165 USD for a 9800GTX+

I'd say get the MSI 9800GT with the cooler (the good heatsink copper one) or the one you have in mind

The one I was looking at was a evga. Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N971-TR GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Is this the one your talking about? Newegg.com - MSI N9800GT 512OC GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

That cooler looks impressive but I don't think the card will be getting overclock to much. Plus does the 9800gt even overclock much?

Yes that 9800GT..

Newegg.com - Galaxy 98PFF6HMUEXI GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

But look into that.. I knew the one you were looking at was overpriced

Because otherwise, the HD 4850 was a good bit cheaper, so I kept looking and found that one ^^

I gotta say, prices aren't exactly dumping much, i got my xfx 9800gt for $99 and my 9800gtx+ for $149.99 over two months ago now. In canada you cant even find the gtx+ under $200 anymore. Gotta love it when the dollar bombs the way it is
