Searching a gfx card price range 90-110$

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=N82E16814127379 . 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=11327095&search=zt%20systems&topnav=&Mo=6&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&N=0&Dx=mode%20matchallpartial&Ntk=Text_Search&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=zt%20systems&Ntt=zt%20systems&No=5&s=1&Sp=S&Ntx=mode%20matchallpartial&Nty=1 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

  1. The 9800 GT would be your best bet.
  2. 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..

    I would go with radeon 4830. With a little overclocking, this card can run toe to toe with the 4850.

    well, i think he wanted to go with nvidia so he can SLI but yes, the 4830/4850 would be an excelant alternative
  5. ooooo, thats a nice 9800gt =]]]


    im likin the price 2 =D
    the holidays rock
  6. Yea i figured since its only 129 before the Mail in rebate he can almost afford to not deal with it =P

    Dual slot cooler even. :) That'll be nice too, especially if the OP wants to push it with any OC.
  8. Newegg has a better price on that same 9800GT

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130397

    119.99 but comes out to 104.99 with the mail in rebate.
  9. wow... i want one now xD
    thats an insanely good deal=D
  10. 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:
  12. EDIT: Whoops, need to refresh before I post ;)
  13. LOL true

    i always wondered what the difference architecturally is between the

    8800GTS(G92)
    9800GTX
    9800GTX+
  14. 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

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102803
  15. Which would be better for gaming? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102803 or http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10009031&prodlist=froogle

    I've heard the the Radeon HD 4830 is more powerful than the Geforce 9800 GT. Just want to clarify
  16. They really perform at about the same. HD4830 does perform slightly better in most games but it's like a difference of at most 1-2 FPS.

    You can check the article there.
  17. 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.
