Right now I have a BFG 8800 GTS OC 320 mb, and I'm thinking of buying a 9800 GTX+, is it worth it? Like I don't care too much about price, but performance wise I do care. Plus the 8800 requires only 1 6-pin connector, and the 9800 requires 2 6-pin connectors. I'm running on a 620W power supply, is it enough?

Thx

The performance difference isn't really there... just the newer lower price. But in COD4... you're going from about 70fps to about 105fps in 1680x1050 res. ATi 4850 will get you to around 122fps... for $160~190 card.

i dont know...i'm thinking of crysis performance, it doesnt lag too bad at highest setting with the 8800, so it's still playable, but ya....thanks Compiler

AFAIK - Crysis set the bar on hitting the hardware HARD... but the game itself isn't known for being great. COD4 is known to be a far better game. I've played the Crysis demo on my junky (loaner) 8600GT card in 1024x768 in med - and it looks pretty good at about 20~25fps. I get my 4670 card tomorrow. ;)

So if other games are playing very good, wait till it becomes a problem.
