Cons

need to download the latest drivers to get it working right, they aren't included

1 agrees

larger card may get in the way of other components, need to plan ahead

1 agrees

can't handle the most demanding games at full settings, need to scale them back just a bit

1 agrees

need a power supply with enough output to account for the extra draw, and needs a separate power cable connected

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.
