Good review mate.

I'm not very impressed with the 98** series so far, but at least the card is reasonably priced and is a good buy for someone who doesn't currently own an 88** card.

That's a good, well rounded review - much appreciated.

I won't be swapping my 8800GTX - but for for someone buying a card, well... is a much lower priced 8800gt better value?

How would anyone feel spending £210 on this (lowest I've seen), knowing the next gen chips (if they really are next gen) are just a few months away?

It looks quite a good card - but the timing of it's release seems a bit strange.

I'm in a bit of a situation.

My X2 died a death and it needs replacing. It cost £270.

I was going to upgrade to the GX2 and cough up the extra £120ish as the other reviews I have seen of the gx2 show it smoking crysis etc (they included youtube vids/screenshots to give an idea, mascaras @ xs iirc). That and a few other things sold me.

Now, I have my 88GT atm as backup but it is sold to my mate who is the slowest pc builder in the world so I can't keep it forever.

The 9800GTX is ~£220 so if I got that as a replacement I'd get £50 back.

I demand performance, high res, aa/af etc. I get very angry if my gpu doesn't perform well, conversely I don't like wasting money and the new gpu's are coming, which are probably just die shrinks but who knows...

Does the gx2 justify the extra £170 over the 98gtx? This review suggests no...

Have you just been too nice Matt? I need to read this at lunch or after work... Food for thought.

Very much so.

Nothing established as to the extra 6 pin power requirement ?

If I`m not buying for a new pc, I don`t think I`ll bother. Need to get out of this plateau of similar cards released ~£200.

9800GTX in SLI vS GX2 - that`d be interesting.

Thanks for the review Kemp.

Indeed, probably it was just a typo they could not correct because it was already in print? :-)

It's really a shame, imho... but if it works, we'll see more of that "next-gen" stupidity and buying graphics cards will get even more complicated.

Man I remember back in the days where you either had a GeForce (if you were rich), a Riva TNT or a Voodoo 2...

very interesting review there Kempez, and I would agree for people with a 8800 series card, it isn't really worth the upgrade, but some someone looking at spending £200 odd on a new card, its def the way to go.
