BFG GeForce 9800 GX2 1024MB review


Now of course the 1500 mb of vram helps out in the higher resolutions, but still it stays right up there with it, and even beats it in some situations. Then again factor in the additional heat, power consumption, and cpu bottleneck.. it might be better off to go with a single 9800GX2.

EDIT- I just saw what you posted, and if you want something on par with the gx2, then go for 9600gt's! and sell your gtx, either on here, or craigslist or something. Then you can afford to get a new cpu.

what mobo do you have?

Asus M2n-SLi Deluxe.. and an AMD 5600+ X2..2.8ghz.

4 Gigs of crucial ddr2, 2 raptors 74 and 150 gig, 500gig wd cavier.. 2 dvd drives..

Becuase the 9600gt has only 64 stream processors, not to mention I would have only 1 gig of vram combined. With two 8800GTX's its around 1.5 gigs, with 256 stream processors.. compared to 128 with two 9600s.

well, once the price on the q6600 drops, if you wanted (dont know how much you like or hate intel) you could get a good 680i board, I think nos is selling one, and then a q6600 for around 300 for the both of them. and 350 or so for dual 9600gt's and then sell your gtx on here, or somewhere else for close to 300. you would end up spending what you planned for one gtx, and get tons of great* stuff that could OC like mad.

and so what about the stream processors. if two 9600gt's perform like one gx2 (almost) then they would perform the same as two gtx's, with much less heat, and much less money.
