Was just wondering if anyone could give me their opinion between these graphics cards. I am trying to decide if the GTX+ is worth the extra loot or not. Iff I decide to just stick with the regular 9800 Gt, should I choose evga or bfg? They both give different features.

Thanks in advance.

Kind of depends on the resolution your play at and your CPU. If you have a mid-ranged CPU and play at less than 1680x1050 a 9800 GT would probably be all you need. If a faster CPU and a 24 inch monitor a 9800 GTX+ (or GTS 250) would be better. But if that were the case and you had a little more money a GTX 260 (216) would be better still.

Thanks for the help. I am using 22" inch with 1680x1050 native res. 4gb ddr2 ram with dou core processor. I am sure a 9800 GT would be sufficient, but if its worth the couple extra bucks then I would go for the GTX+. Thanks for the feedback and links :D

Well it seems that I am going to go with a GTX lol, but now I can't decide which out of the 3 posted on this thread to choose from. The XFX one says that it has dual 400MHz for the ramdac while the other two only have single 400MHz. Is this a big difference? The BFG has 1gb of memory while the other two only have 512mb. The EVGA has more core Mhz , memory clock Mhz and nvidia features... All come with a lifetime warranty.

Thanks again.

All good brand GPU. The 1gb version can help a lil if you use 22+ inch monitor (1680x1050 and more ) but not by that much. Benchmark are very close between the 512 and the 1gb. If you play @ 1440 or less no need for the 1gb.

The ramdac is the SAME ... a GTX+ is a GTX+ ;) 

Have FUN !

P.S. system spec ? CPU-MOBO-RAM-PSU ?
