GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GX2 Graphics Card

Final Thoughts


For users looking to get some SLI action, the 9800 GX2 continues to be the card of choice. With a lot of companies still using the reference design for the 9800 GX2, GIGABYTE hasn't been able to do a lot, and the problem with the GX2 is that the cooler in the middle design is quite full on, so if you wanted to go down the aftermarket route there would be a whole lot of messing around needed.


It would have been nice to see GIGABYTE include a full version game with the bundle as it's something that we quite often see with higher end models from GIGABYTE.


The good thing is that quite often you would see a price premium on a product from GIGABYTE even though it had less on offer than some of the other brands, but pricing in this case is very competitive.


The other thing that is worth noting over some of the cheaper brands is that you get a 3 year warranty with GIGABYTE versus a 2 year warranty with some of the cheaper brands, along with a local service center in Australia. You may find yourself with some peace of mind when laying down this much money for a single graphics card.


The GIGABYTE 9800 GX2, while from a looks perspective might not offer much more than the other 9800 GX2s, it's probably more the after sales support that you get which make the card a better option for people who tend to keep their graphics cards for an extended period of time.
