If you don't mind me asking...why only the two? There are better options in that price range right now. But to answer the question, the 9800gt is a much better card, even with the smaller onboard memory.

If only those two cards were offered to me, I wouldn't hesitate with choosing the 9800.

The 4850 from ATI will outperform the 9800GT at the same pricepoint (about $100USD new).
August 4, 2009 3:37:27 PM

+1...the 4850 is cheaper most places than the 9800gt...in fact if you look around and catch a MIR, you can get a 4870 for the price of the 9800gt, and it is on par with a gtx260...in other words ati is much better in the price/perfomance category right now. That might change soon, but for now you $$$ goes a lot farther on the ati side.

What's ur opinion when 9800 GT compared to HD 4830?
August 5, 2009 5:42:28 AM

9800 GT is much better for u.I suggest nvidia than ATi as ati cards run hotter.
August 5, 2009 8:26:31 AM

-1....not really true, and the performance is better for the money on the ATI side right now. If you want the equivalent for the 9800gt it is roughly a 3870.

Ya but HD 3870 is a very power hungry card.Go for HD 4830 instead
August 5, 2009 3:52:27 PM

But you are comparing the wrong things...if the choice is "what is the best card for about $100?", it is the 4850. The 4830 is fine cheap low end card, but it is not as good as the 4850. The 9800gt cost about the same, but has poorer performance in comparison...so are you looking for the cheapest card you can get by with, or do you want the best card for about $100?
August 6, 2009 2:29:40 AM

So , what is the best card for $100?


And also please specify the Power requirements (SMPS) for that card .
August 6, 2009 2:37:46 AM

4850, stated power requirement is 450w, but it will run fine on most 350w PSUs...I know this from experience. I've upgraded numerous HP, Gateway, ect systems with 350 - 450w power supplies. It has worked on every one of them.

You have 2 choices as far as price to performance goes.... you can either go with a 9800GTX+ (hard to find) or just make it easy and get a 4850... Anything less would be considered low end for gaming unless you decide to go sli or xfire in the near future....if you can save a lil more cash the best option you have ATM is this :

XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card

I made an enquiry about both 9800 GT & ATI HD 4850

I am from india. And here the price of ATI HD 4850 is very much high when compared with 9800 GT.

The price of Geforce 9800 GT is Rs. 5700 and of ATI HD 4850 is Rs.8100.

So I am going with 9800 GT.


I am also looking for a decent smps. What capacity of SMPS should I select .?

Please reply.
August 6, 2009 3:10:38 PM


or should i go with ATI HD 4830.

post your opinions.

Now 9800 GT and ATI HD 4830 only.

9800GT ......

If we were comparing the 9800GT vs. the 4850 then that would be another story....

They are almost identical in performance but IMO the 4830 is a waste of money...

August 7, 2009 12:44:45 AM

not to throw a wrench in the works but....
9800gtx+ refurb on the egg for 89.99, lotta card for the cash. If you can shop on newegg and you don't mind a refurb.

Why the 4830 is waste of money?

Negative reviews, poor xfire capabilities compared to the 4770's, and for a lil more cash you can get the 4850 which is a better buy as far as price to performance goes....
August 7, 2009 2:31:42 AM

since your prices are very different from what our are in the states, take a look at this chart, and pick the highest ranked card you can get for your budget. If two cards you are considering are on the same tier, make the decision based on the warranty and extras that come with the card

I am from Kerala.

First I bought the 9800 GT card. XFX is the subvendor of that card.

But when I Installed the card in my PC , I got a specification which is entirely different form Nvidia site

The Gpu-z of that card is below




So I replaced that card with ATI HD 4830. XFX subvendor.



So before buying the product, Ask for the Model Number and check the website for the specification.
Because vendors are manufacturing many cards for the same series.

there is no difference between 512mb and 1gb card. we can also use 512mb to play hard games like crysis and lost planet 2

Wrong the 3870 isn't a very hungry card, at stock clocks this card barely pulls 80w max even though the vrm spec is 105w like the 9800gt. If you want to see a power hungry card then go look at the x1900xtx that draws more power than a 5850 (ref).


The 9800gt is the best option hands down due to faster asic core (G92vsG94) the 9800gt has 112sp while the 9600gt is only a meager 64. Both have the same vram performance however you will be heavily texture limited and shader on the 9600gt. The 4830 isn't worth it due to rarity and the 4850 being to cheap which is heads and shoulders of the lower end card. I would go with the 4850 is you can get it but if nvidia is your fancy then get the 9800gt. The 9800gt will oc nicely but the single slot coolers hold it back and often kill the cards due to the heat. 700/1766/950 should be expected. 720/1850/1000+ on a decent sample.
September 6, 2010 3:18:11 PM

I agree, the 9800 gt os the best option for you. It's too bad the 4850 is so expensive in India, that card is MUCH better than a 9800 gt.
