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.

+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.

Motherboard is for SLI :(  so if i wanted i couldnt get two, right...



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

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.

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

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.
