88/96/98 gts may not be "cutting edge" any longer but they can still hold their own.

When the 8800 series was relased, they we're cutting-edge. They we're the best, truly awesome. No ATI card could compare. I think its fair to say they are awesome.
This isn't of any relevance to Key4You's original question - I just thought I'd put it out there

The 8800GT and the 9800GT are actually identical cards, except for the name.
They both use G92 cores, have the same number of stream processors, same reference frequencies on everything; and if you look at the Gpu-Z information for each card, even the more technical specs which aren't listed on Nvidia's specs page (ROPs, etc) are identical.

Look at the numbers and try to find any difference between the cards - there are none

and yes; an 8800GT/9800GT will do a decent job running all current games - but when buying a new card, you always want to try get something from the most current generation of cards (so an Nvidia 200 series or an Ati 5000 series). That, and the 9800/8800 cards are slowly but surely becoming outdated, just like anything else.

Key4You - If you haven't ordered a new card yet, I would now recommend this one.

The GPU clock is 20mhz lower (which is pretty much completely insignificant when you consider that's only a 2% difference); but it's fifteen dollars cheaper and it has a better cooler (heatsink/fan) on it - that means it will run quieter and at a lower temperature; and if you decide to overclock it, you'll be able to do more of that.

WOW, didnt know that. Thanks for making that clear. Still, you gotta admit, the 8800 used to be awesome.
