The 9800GX2 wasn't the greatest card to come along. It had severe heat issues..... sporadic in nature causing slow downs and lock ups. It also isn't the best with Crysis because of the 256bit memory interface. That, and the heat issue really hampered what should have been a good card. My friend has one and it was always nothing but trouble.

I have not had any issues with the card myself, but i agree it can not handle BC2 on high and nor does it run smoothly on medium settings, i can keep the heat below 80C by turning the fan up to %100. I still don't think a modern Nvidia 260 will out perform the Nvidia 9800 GX2.
