Conclusion:

New video cards are coming out all the time, and there will always be something better the next day, but as for right now the MSI N9800GT is a very nice card. The MSI proved itself quite nicely in our benchmarks and overclocking tests, and for the money, it feels like it is a pretty solid card. The fact that it is overclocked from the factory makes it even more appealing because you don't have to do any work on your own to unlock some of that extra performance that overclocking can give you.  However, if you choose to overclock the N9800GT anyway, the rewards can be worthwhile by giving you a nice increase in preformance for no additional monetary cost. While this card, as all 9800 series cards, is basically a 8800 with a few added features such as PureVideoHD and Hybrid power, the price point reflects that appropriately, which makes this a very attractive card for those on a budget. All in all, I was very pleased with this card and MSI. Even though it isn't the ultra high end solution we would all love to be running in our systems, it is a great video card to give you high-end results and great gameability with a smaller impact on your wallet.

 

Pros:

  • Good benchmarks
  • Overclocked from the factory
  • Even more headroom above the factory overclock
  • Many adapters and cables included to account for almost any situation
  • Non-stock cooling

 

Cons:

  • Similar performance to an 8800GT
  • 2 slot design might take up valuable expansion space on some motherboards
