Default This Just In. 9800gx2 = 8800gt Sli

[H] Enthusiast - XFX GeForce 9800 GX2

First real reliable review ive read. In some cases the GTS512 SLI setup allows for better settings. Its not a complete letdown, but its definately not worth the money unless you just absolutely hate dealing with SLI.

I'd be more inclined toward SLI if Nvidia chipsets were as good as they used to be with the Nforce4 series.

...at this point I have my heart set on the X48-T2R, so that means either crossfire or another single gpu setup.

Wow. Thanks a lot for the post.

I'm on the fence about it as well. Still not sure what I'm going to do.

2x 8800GTS's are on par with the 9800X2 most of the time. And for a bit cheaper.

if I were you I'd sell your 8800GTS and buy 2 9600gt's...

Huh? They only have 64 stream processors. My two 8800gts in Sli can't be touched by two of those 9600's and the cost is the same given the market cost decreases for the 8800gts 320mb cards.

Have you seen how well the 9600s scale in SLI?

hopefully yall won't be on the fence much longer. When the 4870 and 4870x2 come out, we will see what is really worth the money. No reason to get this now.. Unless you demand crysis at barely playable fps on full.
