Yeah it still rules the roost. Not sure if you've seen recently though but they are dropping off retailers sites like dead flies.

Really? Not fussed, guess my resale value will be 1/4 of what I paid come '09 lol. If you hook me up with that 790 I might sli some for the craic... No. Resist. Well, for the right price, course I'd need a new psu too

Oh, nice to the point review!

Edit: Actually - I'm going to have to call you on the conclusion

Give NVIDIA a call and ask them about the GX2...the response will be "WTF is a 9800GX2...we never made that. Look, check out (insert retailer), nothing there is there...eh...eh? Get with the times man and buy a GTX280 FTW!"

GX2 has been wiped off the face of the earth dude

Look, you can't argue with your pretty graphs can you? GX2 outperforms the 280. I believe the word you are looking for is pwnt.

What type of batter are we talking about here? I've heard rumours that your dad is that way inclined.

That type. Lets face it, your dad loves being on the receiving end of bukkake, my dad enjoys ejaculating hence why they are good mates.

Prob best for both of us this conversation ends here? Lets just agree I'm right? Cool. nn

Woah, weird thread! <----- Was a weird thread.

Nice review Jimbo, not too bad a card.

I love my 9800Gx2. You can see why Nvidia wants it gone.. they were hopeing the GTX 280 would beat it. So really they shot themselves in the foot.
