i want to keep this computer setup as long as possible, so i need help buying a new card. i have,

939 x2 4800
7800gt sli
2gb ddr 400, i get 7000 in 3dmark06 and 80 fps on fear on 1280x1024 max settings 4aa and 8af.

now, i was wondering would i get better performance with a 8800gtx? i have the power and space to run it! or should i wait for the 9800gtx even though it will be pci express 2.0? and i could lose half the performance, because i have a 939 board?

More about : 8800gtx 9800gtx

Wait for the AMD HD 3950XTX.

I hear that it will use all silent heat sinks and require as much power as teh x1300 series.

It's supposed to outperform twin 9800's in sli!

Here is the evidence.

*sorry*

Haha. Well said.

Having said that, the 9800GTX (G90) is nowhere near release.

With a 8800GTX you will be CPU bound... at the res there is 0 reason for a GTX. Get a GTS if you must and roll on. Having SLI at the res is just silly.

80FPS? Why upgrade at all... I don't upgrade until I can't reach 30FPS. :?

Wait to AMD to buy nVidia, then buy the most uber card ever, the GeRadeon HD X7967789XTX Ultra.

Worth the wait for sure.

:roll: :lol:  :lol: 


The 9800GTX is no where close to being released, so we can't tell if you should get that.

If your games are playing fine, don't upgrade.

that made my day ( just goes to show how bad my day was :roll: )

at OP: well seeing as your current system does the job...why bother upgrading???

like you said "thinking in terms of september with quake wars,bioshock,hellgate london, timeshift,unreal 3 and crysis coming up!"

well...when September comes and the games are released.....then decide :p

It's really quite simple. The user's current system is his condom, and his post suggests that his ego aka epenis is larger. Therefore he requires a bigger condom.

Btw, forget the G90 chip, look at the G92 chip instead - far better ;)

That certainly is one way of looking at it. :lol: 

If the OP wants I can mail him my GeForce2 MX400. It should at least double his FPS. 8O



I'm sorry did I just say double? I meant quarter it at the least. My bad.
