XFX 9800GTX Plus Black Edition Review @ motherboards.org
The new XFX 9800GTX+ Black Edition is probably one of if not, the fastest 9800GTX+ card on the market at the moment, and paired in an SLI configuration they are smoking fast, even faster than a standard GTX280 oddly enough. Add the fact the card comes with a full retail edition of Far Cry 2 only sweetens the pot on buying this card. The game alone cost $49.00 at some retail stores, which is you calculate into the price makes the card about $179.00, ad in the rebate and the price is even better. Almost all NVIDIA cards are made from the same place as fabrication plants for these cards are a small amount of companies so the company you buy from is a very important factor. XFX offers excellent warranty programs and solid customer service as well as being responsive to email and phone support. The card in single mode is fast; in SLI mode it's faster than just about anything you can get your hands on without custom modifications to the cards themselves. This is a solid Editors Choice product from NVIDIA and the folks at XFX. Good job on revamping and renewing an older card, it's extended its end of life by a few months at least.
