About NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX
Every CUDA core counts if the fate of the world rests in your hands and the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX has 128 of them. The GeForce 9800 GTX is not only fast, it also has a wide memory bandwidth and is power efficient with the punch it packs. However, if you find this graphics card too powerful for your gaming PC's motherboard then the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT is an excellent alternative. Although the 8800 GT only has 112 CUDA cores, those are enough to render graphics-intensive games without suffering occasional stutters and aliasing. The NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT is an even more affordable alternative to the 9800 GTX. Its 32 processing cores provide a clock speed of 540 MHz, and it benefits from NVIDIA's award-winning GeForce 8 Series graphics architecture. Therefore, it fully supports games built on DirectX 9 and 10. For DirectX 11 and 12 games, only an ultra-fast graphics card like the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX will do. Fortunately, you can find one in the vast inventory of high-performance graphics cards on eBay.
