What does the rest of your rig look like?

The 9800GTX is basically the same as the 8800GTS 512, I wouldn't go much less then a good 550 or 600W PSU. If you like FSP I'd get this 600W:

the 500W has (2) 18A rails the 600 has (4) 18A rails, a BIG improvement. And for $30 more its better to be safe.

NVIDIA recommends 550W for a single 9800GTX.
750W for two in SLI.

Hi, I have a problem with my Geforce9800gtx.
Sorry for my english is not too well.

Ok, i have my geforce9800gtz 512mb ssc so the gpu runs at 770 and the memory clock 2300 default.

So my question is: all games runs good with full details at 1024 but when im tried to get high resolution like 1280 - 1680 the game runs like a pentiun 1 :(  i dont know way.

My computer is:
Intel Dual core 2 duo e6850 3.0 mhz
Memory : 4gb ddr2 at 1066 mhz
Motherboard: EVGA 780 sli
3 hard drives 7200 rpm
Power Supply OCZ Xtreme 750w

So, i dont know want happen i already installed the new drivers etc but in 1024 everything is good :p  but more deffinition sucks :(  i have only one card.

Some help? :p  maybe nvidia control pannel configuration? :( 

well some help plz :D

Wow...that does sound a little off to me - given your hardware specs. A little more information would be helpful.

1. What operating system are you using?
2. Are you running your operating system in 32 bit or 64 bit mode?

I'd say that assuming you're running 32bit, either windows xp or vista, if you start to bump up the resolution any higher than 1600x1200 WITH antialiasing or anisotrophic filtering you'll start hitting the 256 bit memory bus width limitation with the g92 core series of Nvidia's graphics cards. If you want eye candy in your games with AA and AF bells and whistles as well as high resolution....you're going to have to get that other shiny new 9800GTX for SLI. Make sure you buy EXACTLY the same overclocked version of this card if you're going to SLI because if you don't.....SLI will scale down to the lowest clocked card.

If you're running 64bit windows XP or Vista (which I assume you would be because you're using 4 gigs of ram) it could very well be a driver issue. Make sure to check the release notes for Nvidia's drivers to see if there are any known performance issues.

Hope this helps.

Oh i got it, well i have Vista ultimate 64 bit mode. So I installed Frontlines rigth now and this game runs full resolution at 1680 . . . but cod4 still slow like p1 lol. only 1024 support in co4 :( 

and yes, im gonna buy another one with the same bus etc for SLI
