The worse is that NVIDIA is misleading unsuspecting customers - because in the comparaison chart they compare 9800 / 8800 and other cards, BUT they use GTX specs, but don't mention it, only 9800 / 8800 / 8500 etc.... VERY deceptive practices - I can imagine people losing sleep over the 9800 and rushing out to upgrade their 8800GT to 9800GT - suckers! That reminds me of what Creative did with their inexpensive line of X-FI cards that were nothing more than rebadged Audigy cards with audigy chipsetrs ! Why not use 8900GT, of course marketing wise it's better to use 9800GT to sucker up people !
