NVIDIA's ninth generation series of graphics cards brings cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities together to provide best-in-class performance. The 9800GX2 is the solution for all your most demanding graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface for the latest system. The 9800 supports Quad SLI to seriously boost your performance options with up to four graphic cards for insane flow rates.

The KO edition delivers a higher frame rate while remaining cooler than a superclocked version. The card's core clock runs at 650MHz relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the 9800's 256 stream processors fed by 1GB of 512-bit 2050MHz GDDR3 memory. Support for DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA's PureVideoHD are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC displays 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors or uncompressed digital streams can also be output via the HDMI port. The 9800 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the 9800GX2 can dish it out.

  • newegg NVIDIA Unified Architecture with GigaThread Technology The fully-unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics and pixel shading operations, delivering incredibly true-to-life 3D graphics. In addition, the massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
  • newegg NVIDIA HybridPower Technology Designed for PC enthusiasts and hard-core gamers, HybridPower Technology switches graphics processing from the GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card to your motherboard GeForce GPU when running less graphics-intensive applications for reduced energy consumption, quieter operation, and less heat generation.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: This card can handle - it's really fast! Highly recommended if you don't want to worry about your graphics card's capabilities. This thing can probably max out any game you can throw at it.

Cons: It's large - had to take some elements of the case apart (3.5in bays, mounting system) to fit it in there. But in the end everything fit and it's great.

Other Thoughts: Got this for my Grandma, an avid WoW player in her 80's, as part of her new system. She's got it hooked up HDMI to her 30-something inch LCD TV - graphics are maxed out - and it's wicked. Absolutely wicked sick.

5 out of 5 eggs9800 GX2

Pros: Well this is honestly one of the best video cards I've ever owned hands down. With the 1Gb DDR3 on there, it is just blowing everything out of the water. All games are run at full resolution for my monitor (1400x900) and I can turn my anti-aliasing all the way up. Crysis is run at these same specs as well. Plus, not like it needs it, but it is extremely overclockable.

Cons: It is a massive piece of hardware and it does run hot so make sure that you have good ventilation in your case. My card is overclocked and it runs at a solid 28 degrees C. No liquid cooling. 6, 120mm fans and a Zalman off the market cooler does the trick but the front of my Cooler Master case is basically a giant vent so that helps as well.

Other Thoughts: Be careful when putting this card in. It's big, it's heavy and one would be extremely liable to accidentally break of the little locking tab on the PCIe 2.0 slot.

5 out of 5 eggsYea, it is hot...so what?

Pros: This card was pretty easy to install and maintain, and I had no problems handling it with my PSU or Motherboard. I'm planning on getting another and hooking it up to SLI.

Cons: OK, yes it runs rather hot. at 75% fan I'm Idling around 55-60C. Also, when you get the fan running high, it is louder than I'd like. Also, the drivers are not the best for this, as sometimes the driver fails and I have to wait 15 or so seconds before it recovers, there isn't any damage to my card or system, nor a reboot.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I wouldn't suggest this if you have a Mid tower case, as it probably won't fit or have good air cooling. Though if you want an amazing card that really cannot be touched by any other card, go for this.

4 out of 5 eggsHot?

Pros: Great video card! Read the specs!

Cons: Huge! Takes up a lot of space, covers two sata ports on my MB. Also, you need to read the specs because it requires a 6-pin AND an 8-pin PCI-E. So make sure your PSU has what you need!

Other Thoughts: For anyone with problems with it overheating, EVGA has a program to manually adjust the internal fan speed! Default speed is 45% ran about 65 degrees idle. Kicked it up to 80% and now it idles at 55 degrees. Program is on their website, its called EVGA Precision.

4 out of 5 eggsHot Indeed

Pros: I'm running a 24" 1920x1200 monitor on DVI-D. With the video card as the bottleneck I get ~40FPS with all settings maxed in F.E.A.R. and over 60FPS with all settings maxed in WoW. This thing is fast, has a ton of memory, and makes me smile. Vista Home Premium x64 scores it as a 5.9/5.9.

Cons: Runs very, very hot. Overheats once every few hours if my room's over 70*F, causing a reboot. My case is a CM Stacker with a 120mm fan above it and a custom 90mm fan installed blowing air directly onto it from the side, but this isn't enough. I'm going to have to look into additional cooling.

Other Thoughts: Requires both a 6- and 8-pin PCI Express power connector. Blocks my Intel HD Audio Front Panel connector pin outs and I have to remove it if I'm going to remove RAM. Uses two expansion slots in space and almost runs over into the third one. Worth it if you like great graphics and either don't want SLI or want to be able to expand to SLI - just make sure you super cool your case.

3 out of 5 eggsI didn't think this through very well

Pros: this card was a serious step up from the 9600GT SSC, of course i should add that i'm using the SSC version not the KO version of the 9800GX2.

Cons: HOT HOT HOT HOT, unstable EVGA has worked with me on around 7 different ways to make this beast run and not crash in vista ultimate sp1 x64. None have worked. If you have this card and are having problems. Step up to the GTX280. I'm in the process of it right now.

Other Thoughts: You won't lose any performance going from the dual GPU to the single in the 280. there are a few spots this card wins in but none you're ever going to notice.

5 out of 5 eggsthe double edged sword

Pros: The 9800gx2 has received some critisism over the past several months, I know many feal this card is nthing more than a prett 8800gts in sli. And that may have been true, before recent drivers. My KO edition is actually the second 9800gx2 I have purchased and now that I am running Quad sli, there really isn't anything that can touch my cards. nvidea is planing on releasing Physx drivers soon and I know my cards will stand up to the new programing.

Cons: I won't sugar coat it, these are hot. Plus they suck a lot of juice from my system. some 750w when I was running a benchmark. normal operating temps are about 65c idle and 85-90c load.

Other Thoughts: The nice thing about quad sli, there really isn't a game you can't play on maxed out setting @ 1680x1050.

Current specs, 1200w psu, 4x2 Gb DDR2-1066, Vista home premium 64bit, Q9550 w/c @ 4.08 GHz, 2 EVGA 9800gx2's @ 700/1100

3 out of 5 eggsDon't be fooled.

Pros: This card is great if you want SLI but don't want to upgrade your motherboard. EVGA products are High quality as always. Thats about it for pros for this card. Performance is exactly equal to 8800GT SLI.

Cons: First off let me say that I feel cheated by NVIDIA. This card ONLY HAS 512MB of memory and a 256bit memory bus. The advertising on the box is a blatant lie so don't fall for it. Second the drivers for this card are junk. They finally got quad sli working but they are not fully developed. Runs very hot 85c+. Make sure you have room to install this card, its about 2 inches longer than a regular 8800gt.

Other Thoughts: Nvidia promised me cookies but sold me cookie dough. This card requires a 6pin + 8pin for power(no 6 pin to 8pin adapter included) Hopefully Nvidia gets their act together and releases working drivers for this card, maybe then the true power will be revealed.

2 out of 5 eggsI thought I knew what I was doing

Pros: The card is a beast I'll give it that. When it works It's very amazing. Crystal clarity, smooth, a bit warm, but nothing a few extra fans haven't fixed, nor a watercooling install can't cure of course.

Cons: I have been working on this card for the past week. Every game I attempt to use on it it locks up. Oblivion, AoC, CoH/CoV, all of them, I either get 30 seconds into the game and lock up or I get to a load screen and lock-up. I've updated drivers, reloaded drivers, rolled back drivers. Even dig registry cleaning and tempted a few registry changes, nothing worked.

Other Thoughts: The card is good, but I'm thinking I got a dud. If anyone has any advise on what to do to get this card working. Help me please I would like to get my money's worth.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This thing is a fricking beast so far. I've had no problems running any game on it so far, Everything runs so smooth and I haven't had a bit of lagtime with it yet.

Cons: Temp is a little high at roughly 65C

Other Thoughts: Running on a qx9650 and a 790i Ultra. Runs my 20" LCD beautifully.
