Fair enough...he said he already HAD the Card and wanted to know how it compared..not whether he should buy one or the other...
Its pointless to try n convince me that any 9 Series (other than 9800 GX2) is a faster Card than the other..
Hmmm...gee thx... and i spent all that time looking those up...for nothing.
No not a waste, I "breezed" through them...interesting though with the 9800 GTX+.....less Memory and slower Bandwidth than 8800 GTX, yet it does very well...I figure this would be a good SLI set-up for someone on a bit of a budget...

Sniper, those cards are still really good mid-range cards. Like I said, Geforce 9 was pretty much a rebrand of the 8 series, with some little improvements of the architecture, namely the die shrink and more SP. Thee 9800GTX is a slightly faster 8800GTS(65 nm), which shows in all those reviews that even the 8800GTX/Ultra can still post some very similar results to each other, and even sometimes the 8800GTX can still perform better. It wasn't until the GTX+ (the 55nm die shrink of the original 9800) that we some some better improvements, due to better temperatures and speeds.
So save your self some money, buy a fan or two and place them near your SLI 8800s.
