NVIDIA’s 9-series might be brand-new, but the 8-series should not be overlooked. Most 8800 GTS 512 cards cost less than the 9800 GTX, and can be easily overclocked to overpower it. In the case of this pre-overclocked ASUS card, the 9800 GTX doesn’t have a fighting chance.

Futuremark 3DMark 06


Welcome to the most loved and hated benchmark on the planet, Futuremark’s 3DMark 06.
