my bfg 8800gts 640mb went pop months ago and sent it back to bfg for a replacement. it took them 2 months to sort out the replacement as the card is discontinued. 2 weeks later i recieved the card but it was the wrong one, they sent a 8500gt 256mb. and someone else recieved mine so i sent this back. 4 months later and many problem i recived another card but once again not the one i sent, but this time its a 9800gt 512mb. they said i can keep this card in replacement to my 8800gts. just wanted you opinions on this and wether i should keep the card.
On the charts is does seem a bit better than the 8800gts and i am only gaming on 1280x1024.
The 8 series WAS good. I have a buddy who still uses an 8800GTX and runs VERY well. He actually had/has a few of them. They have been dying off though. The 9800GT is just a refresh of the 8800GT just with a smaller GPU die and similar performance. They are great cards as well and still hold their own.
