    9800GT vs 8800GT

    So here's the deal, I RMA'd my 512mb XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition (how cool does that sound. :D)
    and now i'm being offered a 512mb Palit Nvidia 9800GT w/hdmi
    Now, atm I dont even need the HDMI, and the company said I can take this, or wait for supplier to replace my card.

    So I am aware that a 9800 is basically the same as a 8800, jus wondering if you was in my shoes, what would you do. Replace it now, or wait it out?
    (I have been waitin abotu 6 weeks now)

    9800GT is basically a better version of the 8800GT.
    If it was me in your shoes i would replace it with the 9800GT, but that is because im a big Pc gamer so the 9800Gt is better for me.
    Depends what you use your computer for, if its not games you may aswell just wait it out (depends how much longer you would have to wait aswell thought, 6 weeks is quite a wait already)
