EVGA GeForce 9800 GT


$120.00 Released July, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Enough processing power to handle most games at good settings. Excellent value performance for what you pay. Installation is very simple, just plugs in and drivers install without any surprises.

The Cons:Larger card may get in the way of other components, need to plan ahead. Need a power supply with enough output to account for the extra draw, and needs a separate power cable connected. Need to download the latest drivers to get it working right, they aren't included.

The EVGA GeForce 9800 GT video card is an upgrade over the low-cost 9400 GT. It comes with a large cooling fan and promises easy overclocking. This is a physically larger card, so a full-sized tower is recommended to house it.

It runs graphic programs and games well, but doesn't achieve high frames per second.

The GPU runs at 600MHz with 112 processing cores, and is supported by 512MB of memory running at 57.6GB/s. There are two DVI-I ports and a HDTV-7 output. The card is SLI capable, but with the fan in the way you'll need to double-check the dimensions of your motherboard to make sure it will fit.
