Default Step up to 9800 GTX from 8800 GT

Is it going to be really worth the 120 to step up my 8800GT to 9800 GTX'S I have two of them so it would cost 240 total. Just wanting to see peoples thoughts....

Probably. Just as long as you have a PSU with 4 pci connections.

Evga MSRP of card you want - price you paid for your card + 10 shipping = price of your stepup.

I do hope you registered the card within 30 days though.

That can't be possible! I paid 300+ for my 8800 gts and the 9800 gtx is only 330!
