MSI GeForce 9800 GT 512MB Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

The 9800 GT has been out for a while now, but not many companies seem to have taken the chance to really push the product. In all honesty, though, it doesn't come as too much of a surprise, no thanks to NVIDIA releasing so many different models over the past few months. We've literally come to the point where it's too expensive for companies to really push every new product that comes out.

 

To date we've only looked at one other 9800 GT which came from Palit. As we have already discovered, the 9800 GT is nothing more than an 8800 GT with a new name. This isn't the first time NVIDIA has done this and we don't doubt for a second it will be the last time.

 

We knew before we even wrote our first review that the card would represent good value for money, but the aggressive launch price of the new model meant that it was even better than we expected. Today it's time to see what MSI can do with the card; apart from going the aftermarket cooling route they've also got a nice little bundle going on.

 

Before we check out the cooler, let's have a look at the package and what MSI have included. From there we will have a closer look at the card, its specifications and then find out how it performs.
