That 9800 GTX is a disgrace.

I never buy a GTX as I don't game at over 1680x1050 and my PSU doesn't have two six-pin power connectors. I've had a GX2 before and frankly its too expensive for what it provides - SLi support but only in SLi-enabled games...which isn't enough games. I await the next GT or GTS.
Yep.

I was talking about the image I found and posted. It is edited, surely?

It is similar to one of the 7900 cards...

Chances are its a 9800...or 8800. After all, the 9800 is a recycled 8800.

If anyone gave a shit; Ati have made two new cards, the 4850 and 4870 which had an outstanding price to performance ratio, which led to nVidia drastically lowering the prices of most of their cards.

Nice, to see Ati making a move. I wonder what the two of them have in store for next year.

Thanks to ATi, nVidia have been forced to drastically reduce the price of their GTX260. At launch, the HD 4870 undercut the GTX260 by about £60 and was faster in almost every game. I've bought a HD 4870, my first ATi card ever, and don't regret it.

The HD 4850, available at around £110, is an exceptional card for its price. The HD 4870, typically £170-190, is hugely overclockable (as is the HD 4850) and can run games such as Race Driver GRID at 1920x1200 with an FPS of over 50 and as much as 100 using 8xMSAA. nVidia brought the GTX260 out at around £250 and the GTX280 at around £450. Both ATi cards support DirectX 10.1, as did the HD 38XX cards but nVidia's cards only support DirectX 10. This isn't a major issue at present due to the lack of games supporting DX10 but shows future-proofing.

The GTX280 remains the fastest single graphics card but only starts to pull away at a distance when gaming at 2560x1600 which is the native resolution of a 30" monitor.

Add to that the fact that SLi (nVidia's dual-card technology) far inferior to CrossFire (ATi's dual-card technology) and you can buy two HD 4850's for under £240 and two HD 4870's for under £400. The GTX280 costs £300-400.

nVidia have announced a big surprise in September which there are rumours about. Thanks to AMD, though, prices are continuing to fall and PC hardware has already blitzed "next-gen" console hardware.

I need a new graphics card. I play Flight Simulator X and i want a new graphics card, so i can play it with all settings set to Ultra-high and not have any lag.

Anyone know a good one? price is not an issue, but would be nice if its below 300.

The very top cards tend to be under £300 now. I believe the latest top-end cards are the ATi Radeon HD4870X2 and nVidia GTX280. Both require two 6-pin PCI-E connectors on your power supply.

You might want to look into that a tiny bit more as I've not paid attention to the market for a couple of months.

Im thinking of getting a 9800GT, specifically this one, as it seems pretty cheap.

I checked my PSU last night and it was 400W max - the 9800GT specs show it doesnt use too much power, but I was wondering if anyone could fill me in as to whether 400W would be enough? I ask because I dont exactly know how much the average PC uses, and also, if anyone knows the power consumption of an 8500GT (?)

http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/produc...es/9800GT.aspx

The PSU requirement for a 9800GT is 400W and for an 8500GT is 300W due to the former being more powerful. If purchasing the 9800GT, ensure your PSU has a 6-pin PCI-E connector.

If you had a greater PSU, you could buy a vastly superior card for not much more.

In fact, have you considered the ATi Radeon HD 4670? Check some reviews comparing this to the 9800GT.

I'll have a look at the HD4670 for sure.

I looked at the 9800GT because it was under £100, I didnt want to go too much over that, however I now understand that if my computer starts fecking up (i'm aware of the signs of an overloaded PSU) then I might just have to get a 500W. Lucklily PSU's seem to be fairly cheap.

In terms of replacing the PSU, I would assume theres a bit more hassle invloved than a simple swap as with the GFX card. Could you clarify that?

Dont have a PCI-E connector, i'm getting an adapter though.

I'm not sure if adapters are any good. As for a cheap power supply - never buy a cheap one. Unless you're buying a good one and it just so happens to be a good deal :>

All recent graphics cards will require at least one 6-pin PCI-E connector, some will require two although those are generally top end cards for heavy gaming.

Im hoping it requires just the one. I've now ordered both the 9800GT and the adapter, not sure if the adapter is going to be that great, but we shall see. What other options are there, can you buy 6-pin PCI-E connectors?

Sorry I'm awake now :faceplm:

The adapter will be fine. Not sure where my head was when I said I don't know about them. You just have to make sure the rated amps on the 12V rail are able to handle the graphics card.
