I would keep the GTX ... For the following reasons:

1- Its a GTX!!
2- You will play at high resoulation ... The memory will help.
3- Its future proof .. I mean anytime you can put a better cooling on it and overclock!

Keep the GTX my friend!

Well, Thats really upto you, I mean your the best who knows if you need SLI or not ... I was in the same boat as you .. My situation was, I had about 3000 to build a New system So i had the money to get a 790i board and get 2 Ultra's and have them in SLI But i sat down and thought about it and decided to go with a P35 board ( IP35 Pro ) and get a GTX ... I spent the rest of the money on a 24inch HD monitor ... 4 -
640GB Sata drives and a PDA and most importantly on a Great watercooling setup ( Costing me about 300 pounds ) ... The reason was, I only play games %10 of times, So im not exactly a Gamer! and a overclocked GTX plays really nicely for me, for now!

Have fun deciding,

The Computer Council
Q6600 at 3.0Ghz on an EVGA 780i board with 8800GTXs at stock, Vista Ultimate x64.

3DMark06 scores:
1 card: 12448
2 cards in SLI: 14961

Crysis 1280x1024 Very High:
1 card: 18.74FPS
2 cards in SLI: 24.50FPS

SLI would probably help even more at higher resolutions so the info there may be of use if you're wondering whether to go SLI.

Thanks - I presume the 9xxx cards would scale better than that?
Where are you based (the computer council) by the way?

I've noticed that in some of your reviews the gt scores higher than the gtx in certain tests - is this mainly a low res thing and something to do with the way 3dmark 06 is set up, or nvidia's drivers?

If your referring to the XFX alpha dog review its factory overclocked pretty far.

25-03-2008, 09:43:37

No it's the MSI NX8800gt zilent (t2d512e) - where do they get these b*ll***t numbers from?
Clocked at 660mhz, 1900 memory, shader clock 1650mhz.
With a zalman vf1000 cooler, so there's probably still a bit of head room for more overclocking.
With the cooler it takes up 2 slots.

Depending on your res the GT may score higher, but I've found Crysis the GTX plays smoother...

25-03-2008, 18:40:36

Thanks - what is it with 3dmark 06? Have nvidia tuned the drivers to give the g92 cards better scores?
Wouldn't be the first time.

We're just outside Uttoxeter, Staffs though we only actually trade online. :)

I have a decent cooler on my GT and load temps rarely get above 40'c - temperatures aren't the limiting factor; the card's just at its limit with a hefty overclock - I get just over 15K in 3DMark06 with it, but I'd still swap it out for a GTX if a free one came along.

It'll be interesting to see how the 9800GX2 fairs up in Quad SLI (two cards) which we should be testing as soon as we get hold of the drivers.
The single card did great in the Crysis benchmark but not so well in 3dMark06 - it didn't seem to recognise both cores for us in that. Be good to compare it to ATIs X2 crossfire that we're testing at the moment. :cool:
