Actually there are some differences - The 9800GT supports 3way SLI and HybridPower, otherwise the chipset used is identical and the same number of SPs, 112, same clocks, same specs, so unless you are doing 3way SLI or want HybridPower, you would be wasting your money going from a 8800GT to a 9800GT. NVIDIA is mileading a lot of people this way - they could have done 8900GT - ;) Or 8800.1 !
