NVIDIA's ninth generation series of graphics cards brings cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities together to provide best-in-class performance. The 9800GTX is a balanced solution for all your graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface for the most up-to-date systems. The 9800 supports Quad SLI to really crank your performance options by using up to four graphics 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 738MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the 9800's 128 stream processors which are fed by 512MB of 256-bit 2250MHz GDDR3 memory. Support for DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0, OpenGL 2.0 and NVIDIA's PureVideoHD are also 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 lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors, or output to other video displays via the S-Video and HDTV connectors for maximum flexibility. The 9800 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance at a price that'll still leave money in your pocket.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, very fast

Pros: While it's no longer in the top tier of Nvidia cards, this card actually remains one of their fastest offerings. Runs cool and stable. Easily overclockable, I have two running in SLI at 849/1998/2412. This is so much faster than even the new 200GTX series. I benchmark Crysis on Ultra High, 1680x1050, 16x AA, at around 35FPS. Helped me break the 20K mark on 3DMark06. Eat your heart out, 280GTX :D

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind the size of these things. In the Antec 1200 case, I had to put my HDDs in the lowest cage, as they would have been too close to the back of the 9800's anywhere else. Also, make sure you've got an adequate PSU with 2x 6-pin plugs (4x for SLI, etc.).

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: This card screams along, even when put into an older system. I'm using an EVGA Nforce 4 mobo, an amd athlon 64 x2 4200+, and 3 gigs of kingston ram (all of which are around 3 years old), and this card still charges through Oblivion on full detail with hardly a stutter. Also, if you get the EVGA Precision utility and turn up the fan to 95%, this card runs at around 51 celsius in an air-cooled system when under a load.

Cons: PCIe 1.0 backwards compatibility isn't something to be trusted, 100% fan speed is somewhat audible.

Other Thoughts: Big, very big.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: Runs great with the 177.39 drivers and Physx. Very smooth game play. Noticed improvement over 8800gts 512mb. Crysis runs 35 fps with all settings on high, shader and shadows on very high. Its basically a 9800gtx+ thats 65nm instead of 55nm. Overclocked 850/2000/2400 (core/shader/memory).

Cons: takes 2 6pin pci-e connectors. long, 10 1/2 inches, barely fit in my case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest buy for the money

Pros: The title says it all: this is a great buy for the money. In Age of Conan, I now get an average of 60 fps with all graphics settings on maximum, 4x AA, and 1680x1050 resolution (except Bloom lighting is turned off). Also runs Oblivion on absolute max settings at more than 70fps, and Doom 3 at 75 fps at maximum settings.

Cons: This is truly a gigantic card. I mean huge. I upgraded from a 7800 GTX, and the size of this was truly astounding.

Other Thoughts: My system is: Intel Core 2 Duo Wolfdale 3.16GHz, 8 GB of OCZ DDR2 RAM, Corsair 600w psu, Asus P5E motherboard, Razer Barracuda Sound Card, Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATA hd.

5 out of 5 eggsFast..

Pros: Fast and a great price for a super clocked version.

Cons: Not really a con, but it's a huge card.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your setup has enough room. The card is about 10.5 inches in length so you need 11.5 inches for a decent amount of clearance.

5 out of 5 eggsVery great card for the price

Pros: Replaced two 6800GT's and man what a difference it's made. I'll consider getting another one down the road, but for now the only game I can't run at max settings is Crysis, but the game looks and runs amazing on high settings so who cares? Also has significantly cooled down my case temps in addition to my processor temps. All of this for an AMAZING price from Newegg, you guys rock!

Cons: Very large. Needless to say if you're someone moving from an older 6 or 7 series GeForce card prepared to be shocked by the size of this thing. It is pushing down on a heatsink on my Tyan K8WE but not enough to have me worried.

Other Thoughts: My only concern looking to the future is the power consumption of these things. My 600W PSU that was at one time "SLi Certified" has both of it's PCI-E power hookups being used by this one video card. How long until 1kw PSU's are the norm? Regardless, it's a splendid card and NVidia has great drivers. The lifetime EVGA warranty is also a huge plus.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good card.

Pros: DX10, factory overclocked, got it for $209! Not a power hog tho it does have 2 6-pin connectors.

Cons: Huge- had to reroute cables, but expected that from the other reviews so not really a con, just a fact.

Other Thoughts: Had to get it! The $209 sale price just made it a steal. NOT a huge performance gain from my 8800gts 640mb card, but a marginal improvement and DX10 for the games that use it. Fan is loud at start-up but quiets fast and runs quiet also. System- Antec 900, Asus board, AMD6400+, 150gb raptor, 4g kingston hyper-x, Zalman 9700 proc cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but not a "wow"

Pros: I upgraded from an ATI Radeon x850xt PE to this card. I definitely see an increase in performance (I play mostly CS:S and TF2), from the settings it can handle to the FPS I get even after all the junk I throw at it. What I am really impressed with is the bang for the buck. At $210 this is a steal. At most settings this card nips at the heals of 8800 Ultra which is over twice the price.

Cons: I was not WOWed by the gain from my Radeon. The Radeon is probably on par with 8600 GTS, maybe slightly lower, and possibly the GTX280 of its days. The 9800 is not that card. It’s more for the budget consumer. I still think the 9800GTX is the best bang for the buck. If you’re a hardcore gamer who plays Crysis at 1900 x whatever resolution max settings then this is not for you. Read the Toms hardware guides. The memory of 512 will be severely limiting at higher resolutions and it performs even worse than 8600’s with 768mb memory. However, if you’re like me and you plan on eventually configuring these beauties in SLI somewhere down the road, then by the time you enter the arena for the most demanding games at the most demanding settings you should be able to have 1gb of memory at your command. The price for the card will be a lot cheaper, too.

Other Thoughts: Depending on what game you play your CPU could be bottlenecking your video card. In my case I feel like my e6600 is bottlenecking overall performance in CS:S, but only cause CS:S is a very CPU intensive game. Many people out there throw around single number FPSs. While this is good for apples-to-apples comparisons between products, I think the minimum FPS matters much more in regards to playability. Keep that in mind when you read reviews and benchmarks.
My specs:
Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.2ghz
2 gb Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 @ 1000mhz
eVGA nForce 680i mobo (FYI this card should perform the same on PCI-e x16 as it does on PCI-e 2.0 because it doesn’t utilize the additional bandwidth)
Performance with Radeon x850xt:
CS:S: 15 – 300 FPS at around medium-high settings. 1024 x 800 resolution
Performance with 9800 GTX KO:
CS:S: 65 – 300 FPS at highest settings, 1024 x 800 resolution. Quadrupled the minimum FPS!

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING GRAPHICS

Pros: EVGA just makes a good product. 0 problems with install or running it. Runs Vanguard at max settings all day long, 20 fps in combat, i get 70 at medium settings. Switched from a 6800 gto, and the difference is night and day. If youre looking at this and the 8800gt, id get this for the price difference you cant beat it. It brings a smile to my face every now and then....

Cons: Its big... read specs and make sure its gonna fit. Requires 2x 6 pin power connections, but what do you expect for this much power?

I dont have 2 of them, yet :)

Other Thoughts: Asus p5n-d, 2x WD 160gb drives in raid 0, 2gb ocz pc 6400, Q6600, EVGA 9800 GTX, Rosewill 750w ps, Antec 900.
