It's a recommended PC components thread.. We suggest after market coolers in here also, usually for OCing... so whats your point?... The 9800gtx should defiantly go into this thread.

Oh and, lol b1gapl... i just noticed.

Question. Should I remove the 8800GTX and replace with the 9800GTX? Thing about the 9800GTX, is that you can get the 8800GTS 512 much cheaper, and get close to the same performance.

And are the list easy to read? How would you guys want it? I was thinking of making the list width wise, so you wouldn't have to scroll so much.

I think I'll keep the 8800s there. With the coming of the 9900 series in 3-4 months, I don't think I'll bother with the 9800GTX and probably the GX2.

Maybe instead, I'll put up options for multiple graphic cards. So under 8800GTX in the high-end, I'll put like 9600GTs in SLI, 8800GTs in SLI, or HD3870s in CF. And maybe categorize that under recommended resolution settings, for those certain graphic setups.

Why did you remove the 8800gs? Is it because of 9600gso?

Also remove that Opteron Santa Ana at the Low End (its discontinued)

I removed it from the mid-end, because for just a little more, can get you a 9600GT.

I think you should replace 8800GTX with 9800GTX

9800GTX performs around 5% faster on average, cheaper and it consume less power
