Galaxy GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB
The Galaxy GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB
So currently for the same price compared to the normal price of the GeForce GTX+ you can purchase this card already. In fact I was just looking at Newegg and they have this very card listed at 149.99 (after a rebate). A stunning price really. So for the EU that accounts to 120 to 149 EUR. That is pretty good.
The Galaxy GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB comes with a complete custom design. Everything from PCB up to the cooler and connectors differs from the reference based products. Now don't get me wrong, the reference products are already extremely good. So to do something different from that, is a bold move. But it certainly works out. For 150 USD you get the custom blue PCB and the custom cooler. And (we'll show you this in the photo shoot) both a DVI and HDMI connector, which is great to see. So whether you connect the card to your HD telly or computer monitor... it doesn't really matter.
Included in the bundle you will find:
- Galaxy GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB
- Driver CD
- HDTV block (3-way RCA component)
- S-Video cable
- 6-pin to Molex power cable (x2)
- manual / quick install guide
- S/PDIF cable (for HDMI audio).
Next to a small overclocking / monitoring suite called Xtreme Tuner, there is no additional software to be found. What I do like though is as stated, a sharp price versus a custom PCB (printed circuit board), a blue one at that, and good details like a voltage regulator cooling heatsink.
