8800gts vs. 9800gt eco

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=N82E16814143119&nm_mc=OTC-Channel&cm_mmc=OTC-channel-_-Video+Cards-_-BFG+Technologies-_-14143119&srccode=cii_7240466&cpncode=23-10310399&DEPA=0&refer=channel&CMP=OTC- )

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?

  1. Well, I would say the performance difference wouldn't be significant enough to justify buying the 8800gts, if there's even a difference at all. You should be fine with the 9800gt eco. However, I would go with a ATI 4670 instead!

  2. 4670 is way weaker in performance than 9800gt eco, just to mention. I suggest going to 5770 for a significant performance increase per buck.
  3. If you want a preformance boost, you want a 5850 or SLI 9800gt eco, nothing else worth the cash.
  4. 9800GT Eco ~= 9600GT. 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.
  5. GTS250=8800GT rebrand. All the cards are the same. If you want a upgrade, buy a 5850. Now thats a upgrade.
  6. Isn't there a difference between the 9800gt (8800GT) and the 9800GTX? Or is the 9800GTX the 8800GTX?
  7. 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.
