awsome product can do alot for an outdated gfx card

Summary: The end result is that Nvidia has taken care of business with this GeForce 9800 GTX. It delivers very good performance, better than the 8800 GTX' (by an average of 7%) and close to the 8800 Ultra (especially without antialiasing). The performance is also good enough to put the 8800 GTS 512 MB out of the running, with a little surprise: Despite an identical GPU and similar throughputs (+4% in the raw-processing-power department, +13% for memory bandwidth), the gain in...
Summary: I still haven't figured out why a stock XFX GTS250 was re-branded as a 9800 GTX+....but it most certainly was! The two graphics cards could not be more different in appearance: the REAL 9800 looks like the accompanying photo...the re-branded one is shorter in length, has a different color scheme (black and green), has only ONE 6-pin power connector (the REAL one has two...), and a short bit of web research turned up the true nature of the imposter!
Summary: This card is the best in the price range. It's got a factory overclock, so it outperforms all other 9800GTX cards right out of the box, plus it's still got some overhead for more hand tuning, overclock this sucker some more if you want.
Older 9800gtx+'s wont work with this new version!!!!

Summary: To sum it up Video card is great but you must verify the GPU speed and build version. I've go 2 9800GTX+'s t98W-YDDU which run at 775mhz plus double the PCI-E power were this card is T98W-YDFH and runs at 738mhz and only 1 pci-e power. Only reason I order it was XFX said it would still work in 3-way SLI with my Older cards. A simple rule: GPU's must be at the same freqency and same make to use Nvidia's-SLI or ATI's-Crossfire. Some times tech support people can be wrong.
Summary: As everybody said, it is huge card, but works excellent (I had to move some hard disks). I can play any games at full resolution without problem. A little noise, but works as expected. Best for these price range.
Summary: Most of my computers in the past were AMD/ATI powered, but with my most recent computer purchase I decided to try Intel and upgraded with this card. It is massive. Not just does it take up 2 slots but it's also a long card, so much so that I had to bend some metal plates in the computer case and re-route cables to make it fit. By no means a plug-and-play card. It all started relatively well. But eventually the system started crashing with all of the games I played.
Summary: This card is pretty good and supports Hybrid mode. A bit pricey, huge in size, and it's not a GTX 260; but it get's the job done. If you don't want to spend more than $200 on graphics card, definitely get this one.
