$599.99 for video card. Well, actually, it’s for two video cards. The GeForce 9800 GX2 is actually two lowere clocked GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB in one card. What is the advantage of this? You can have the benefits of SLI without an SLI capable motherboard and you can put two of these video cards together in SLI for Quad SLI fun.
You can read the reviews of these behomoths over at HardOCP and AnandTech, but be warned: there’s plenty of overkill.
Disappointingly, this GeForce 9 series is slowly becoming nothing more than the GeForce 8 series rebranded with a slight bump in speed. At this point in time, the GeForce 8800 GT is still the video card to get; especially if it’s under $200 CAD.
