    For $50 shipped, its an excellent price. Performance wise, they are slower than a 450GTS. In ATI terms a 9800GT falls right in between a 5650 and a 5750, and a 450GTS is a tad faster than a 5750.

    If you plan on usuing the card for WoW, SC2, New Vegas, you should be fine, if you want to play a bell and whistle FPS, stay away.
  2. these cards will be used for physx only i should have mentioned that
  3. Yes you should have mentioned that!

    In that case, a 9800GT is pretty close to all that you need for a dedicated PhysicsX card.
  4. Great PhysX card. They can beat a 5750 on some tests--but lose in most. They're more like a 5670 (between a 5650 and 5750 as previously mentioned). If you're a budget gamer, two of these in SLI can't be beat at the $100 price point.

    Hey Cia24 did you get that 9800GT Akimbo 512MB video card, I purchase the EVGA model from Tiger direct for PhysX also, it was working good for a long time. but know I'm having problem with the Firmware , I get a blue screen when I used it and a bad Firmware message. I'm trying to see if you can copy the default Fiemware from your 9800GT and e-mail me a copy of the .ROM default file.
