The 9800gtx+ is faster. 1gb ram is useless until extreme resolutions.

While it's true that games are becoming more demanding, GRID for example showing a benefit for cards with more RAM, in most cases the much faster 9800GTX+ will completely pass the 9800GT. Future games that demand more memory may allow the slower 1GB card to post faster frames, but you'll be likely looking at both being playable at those settings :D . If you want a 1GB 9800GT go with this one instead that is much cheaper and has a copy of frontlines

but, if you can spend a little more money just get this 1GB 9800 GTX+ from Gigabyte

Hi...
For the price range that you are seeing, I think Ati 4850 will also be a very gud option...correct me if am wrong ...for this price range the 4850 is the leader...you can find many 4850s in newegg....buy the one which gives gud warranty and see if you get a card with a third party cooler...it would be a gud bet....

4850 is the fastest and cheapest of them =)

4850 perform about the same as 9800gtx, and cost about the same too.

Ya like dagger said they both perform about the same....But u should be considering which game you wanna play cos the cards perform differently in different games...Check the charts...choose the card which performs well in the game u wanna play...

I just got an Asus made 9800GTX. Check out the cooling on this bad boy.

Looks like MSI and Gigabyte have a pretty good cooling plan, as well. I would suggest looking into one that emphasises cooling. Reference design is all the same, but you want smoking hot performance, not a smoking hot card. Just got done with my 7950 GX2, and lord knows those things are a furnace. :whistle:

Tom's Hardware charts are worthless. The 4850 is seen outperforming the 9800 GTX/+ in many reviews, especially with AA on.

4850 Crossfire vs 9800 GTX+ (which is faster than GTX, slightly) and the 4850s win.

I just posted 2 benchmarks go to guru3D.com for more.

The 4850 is the better card, faster, new tech dx10.1 and 55nm.
