  1. The 9800GT is significantly better, take a look at the review of the GT240 here, keep in mind that an 8800GT is a 9800GT so its a perfect comparison.

  4. Not the 5670, it does at best equal to the 9800GT and usually a fair bit worse

    The only difference between the 9800GT and the 8800GT is the name, they are the same architecture at the exact same clock frequencies, the green 9800GT is 55nm instead of 65nm like the 8800GT but the performance is absolutely identical.

    odd lol, but thanks, you suggest the 9800gt deffo then??
  7. +1 For the 9800GT.
    A good bit faster than the GT 240.
    The 5670 makes a good showing but still falls short of this mark.

    The 9800GT is exactly the same as the 8800GT.
    It was directly rebagged by nVidia.
    Later revisions of the 9800GT did receive a 55nm die shrink but the clocks, and performance, are exactly the same.

    Yes you can crossfire the 5670, its a brand new card, its a hair slower in some games as that review at TH shows, it mw2 it beat the 9800. I would go for the new design. yes the 240 is new, but based on their old dx10 hardware. And the 240 can't crossfire.
    The 5670 will draw the least power from your psu.
    Good luck either way
  10. Can't CrossFire any nVidia cards :p
    Anyways, he has a nVidia 780i SLI based motherboard so no CrossFire at all for him, only SLI.
    Personally, I would recommend a single faster card but, to each their own.

    Sorry, i didnt make it clear, this is for a friend, but he has 750i anyway so same problem init.
  12. THG gives the nod in this price range to the 9800 GT

  13. Ahhh
    TBH, I should have figured something like this out when you have SLIed GTX 260's listed above your motherboard :na:

    haha, my bad!, but still, when he want he can grab another 9800gt i suppose...
  15. 9800 is faster.

    I own a EVGA GT240sc as a PhysX card but i have messed around with it as a GPU.
    the card can run MW2 at MAX settings with no problem.
