Hey guys, just looking for opinions. I have an Evga 8800gt superclocked atm and have 40 days left on my step up program. My qiestion is would you guys step up to the 9800gtx? The extra 100$ worth it? Is there anything coming out in the next 30 days that might be better waiting for.

More about : 9800gtx step worth

I don't think its worth a $100. I'd rather save that for a second 8800GT.

Well there wont be any new cards untill july at least so your step up will run out before they come out, but i would not spend that much because you have a good card now. I did the step up but it only cost me 7.34 for shipping only cause i paid 349.99 for the 8800gts 512 when they came out so even know i wont see much difference for 7 bucks why not but not 100.

anyone think its worth buying at all?

No. If it is single card the 50% price boost of the 8800gts 512 is not worth the 10% performance boost.

If you are going triple SLI 3x8800GTX will still win as memory is the big bottleneck.
