My current system with two 8800gts's 320mb cards (see my sig) runs 06 @ 15000+. And why would I spend 600 bones on the 9800? Doh..Not!!!! YOu can get a 8800gts on ebay for like $160. You can buy three of those and not have to look back for a couple of years for less than that video card. $689 is just ignorant.

uhh... because that was not stock resolution...so look at it again, that card kicks the crap out ofyour dual gts 320's... i'd love to see your cards score 12.9k in 3dmark06 at 2560x1600

ilaugh at your 15k, because i hit that w/ 1 8800gt in 3dmark
1 8800gts is about equal to 1 8800gtx.. while yours.. is well 60-70% of 1 8800gtx... and this is 2 8800gts' in 1... this pwns you in every way...

and uhh... 3.. ithink not.. THINK AGAIN... only the 8800gtx and 8800 ultra can have 3 cards...

i think iknow my next card

I wasn't aware of the fact that the GTS is hamstung on 2 cards. BTW, 15000 on o6 was not at those resolutions and since I am a TF2 junky, it frankly, irrelevant to me. So, if money is no object and benching is your thing.....buy 3!!! Whatever opens your beer can!
