Default Video Card Help

This is my current card GeForce 7950 GX2, and this is the card I am thinking of buying PNY XLR8 GeForce 9800 GTX. Looking at some settings they seem somewhat similar except for DX10 technology, is it worth the purchase? Or perhaps a recommendation around the 200-250 price range.

*EDIT: I guess I answered my own question looking at the hardware ranking thread, sorry for the wasted topic.

Default Re: Video Card Help

the 9800 would be alot better, but go for a 9800gtx+ the old 9800 has been phased out now. u could also go with a ati 4850 but ur prob better of staying with nvidia due to driver support, physics ingrated etc.
