Im looking for a new GFX card to replace or so SLI with my Geforce 8600 GT. So far I was going to purchase this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . But its out of stock now so im looking for something as good or better around the same price range.

Also on another note, im looking for a new heatsink/cpu fan for my desktop http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=113270... and was wondering if the "Freezer pro 7" listed on newegg would fit and be the best choice for the price and performance. Thanks for the help in advanced

The 9800 GT would be your best bet.

ok, dont buy another 8600gt for sli. you wont get a fraction of a speed boost in almost all games. that 9800gt is really nice though... you should auto notify and wait... ;) 

the freezer 7 pro is a really nice CPU heatsink but you could also consider the Zalman 9500
those are very nice.

also, could you provide more info about your comp please. such as mbo, CPU, socket, RAM, ect..

Not that amazing considering like 98% of 9800gt's are just relabeled/repackaged 8800gt's

Just like the 9800GTX is a relabeled 8800GTS (G92). ;) 

But they're faster, cause it has a higher model number.... that's at least a 5% increase in FPS...

Sorta like putting a spoiler on the back of your car. :lol:

LOL true

i always wondered what the difference architecturally is between the

8800GTS(G92)
9800GTX
9800GTX+

9800GTX (Slightly faster clocked 8800GTS G92)
9800GTX+ (Slightly faster clocked 9800GTX with a 55nm chip instead of 65nm)

In your price range, I'd get an HD 4830

SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

Quite frankly there's not a spits worth of difference between the 2 cards in real world applications. If you have a SLI capable motherboard and may go with 2 cards in the future, go the 9800GT. If you want to register the card at EVGA and possibly use their "step up program" within the next 3 months go with the 9800GT. If you're going to stick with one card and won't step up, then the HD4830 will save you a bit of money.
