I found some 9800GTX for cheap online, and I heard they are still comparable with the best.
the 9800gtx is allmost the same as your 8800gts
you will see very little improvements.
if you go with 260 or 280 or 285
this will be a much greater performance improvement.
here is an example:
just one game compaired here
my 8800gts gave me 60 fps in game A
my newer gtx 280 gives me 200+fps in game A
game A doesnt stress the gpu at all really, its Guildwars.
but that was the performance increase i got when i upgraded.
9800gtx can not touch the 280 as its just a revamped 8800gts
