8800gts vs. 9800gt eco Tags: Nvidia Performance Graphics Product Last response: March 2, 2010 7:11 PM in Graphics & Displays Share devinkoz March 1, 2010 12:32:27 AM I currently have a bfg 9800gt ecointelligence. It is less performance than the normal 9800gt because it does not require a 6 pin conector.... Though I found a 8800gts (g92) on newegg for 90 bucks ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ) Knowing that the 9800gt is equivilant to the 8800gt, and my version of the 9800gt is weaker than the normal 9800gt, than the 8800gts would be better overall right?

You should be fine with the 9800gt eco. However, I would go with a ATI 4670 instead! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l HansVonOhain March 1, 2010 12:54:11 AM 4670 is way weaker in performance than 9800gt eco, just to mention. I suggest going to 5770 for a significant performance increase per buck. m 0 l Related resources 8800gts 640mb vs 9800gt 512mb - Forum 8800GTS vs 9800GT - Forum 8800GTS 640 MB vs 9800GT vs 8800GTS - Forum HD4850 vs. 9800GT vs. 8800GTS - Forum 9800GT Eco or 4670? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If there was an 9700GT, the 8800GTS would fill it. In other words, you're not getting a good upgrade. If you're upgrading for $90, get a GTS250. m 0 l builderbobftw March 2, 2010 6:16:14 PM GTS250=8800GT rebrand. All the cards are the same. If you want a upgrade, buy a 5850. Now thats a upgrade. m 0 l shadow187 a b Î Nvidia March 2, 2010 7:05:55 PM Isn't there a difference between the 9800gt (8800GT) and the 9800GTX? Or is the 9800GTX the 8800GTX? m 0 l builderbobftw March 2, 2010 7:11:35 PM There is no huge diffrence that is worth you're money. If you realy want a upgrade, but a 5850. Nothing else wold give enough of a preformance gain to be worth you're cash. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
