Default whats the difference 9800 G92 or +

I'm looking to upgrade from my GeForce 7950 512mb and was looking at the GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB but there are some good deals on the GeForce 9800 GTX(G92) 512MB. What's the difference between the + and the G92? I find both with close to the same core clock and price so what one should I be looking at for my next card. I'm not a heavy gamer but would like some cool graphics, Just updated my brothers with the new driver and COD 4 looks so much better and runs smoother. He only has a 8600GTX 256MB and my 7950 used to look better but now his has so much more depth with the 177.83 installed....Can't use that on the 7 series so what one is better.

Thanks guys
Dauntae

gtx is 65nm while the gtx+ is 55nm ...so by all rights, it can be clocked higher, perform better, and produce less heat :|

WOW that was a fast answer. Thanks, So I guess I'll go for the 9800+...Now to figure out what brand name to buy LOL I've had good luck and used the lifetime warranty from XFX with no trouble so I might get there card. Just hope my PS is up to it. 480w rosewill

Thanks again

It's all about the amps on the PSU...try to find out how many it has. I think it'll handle it as long as you stay with a single card.

XFX and EVGA both have lifetime warranties..I think they both ( I know EVGA does ) have a step-up program that you can trade in your card+pay the difference for the upgrade card. Those always come in handy. If you don't plan on doing that I would say just go for the cheapest card or the card that comes with a game.

I didn't know that about EVGA and there core clock is faster too.792MHz it will be a week or two before I order but this might be the one I order Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N878-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ SSC Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
I however can't find anything about there warranty on there website but I'm sure it's there, I just need to find it.

Thanke again

that's the SSC edition..it's factory overclocked and cost like $30 extra...in other words, it's a waste. if you want to overclock, do it yourself. EVGA does has a lifetime warranty.

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N873-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

i recommend that card

I found out the PS specs. This is what is listed for output +3.3V@30A,+5V@30A,+12V1@15A,
+12V2@15A,-12V@0.6A,+5VSB@2.0A actually looked through all my order history to find it at the egg Newegg.com - Rosewill RV480-2-FRB ATX 12V Ver.2.01 480W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, cUL, CB, TUV, CE - Power Supplies
Not great I know but hopefully will hold up for a single card otherwise I'll be getting a PS next and my other PC will get this one.
