    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA (ZOTAC) GeForce 9800 GX2

    well to be fair, it's only the price of a single PCB 8800 Ultra at release..
    makes me wonder how much these 9800GTX and GTS' are going to be.
    just bought an eVGA 8800GT with the 90 day step-up..
    £140 from Scan

    LOL, do you think Wenger's been hanging out with Cantona? Or maybe Jacques 'Jacques' Liverot from The Day Today?

    Your signature says: '"We were focused and prepared to adapt. We knew the pitch was not that good. But it is still a handicap. If I give you a bike with one pedal you can still focus and prepare to adapt but you will still not be quicker than with two pedals. That is logic.' - attributed to Arsene Wenger

    i can't really explain it so..

    1. Register your current card on EVGA website
    2. Select what you want to step up to (whats available on the program)
    3. Join the queue
    4. When you get to #1 you are sent an email by their step up team IF the card you want is available for immediate shipping.
    5. Email them back or telephone with credit card details to pay the difference for the new card vs old one.
    6. Send you old card, which YOU pay for to EVGA in Holland or Germany (cant remember at the moment).
    7. Wait 10 days for your new card to arrive.

    You certainly dont send you card out until they have your new one ready for shipping and you have paid the difference.

    In the USA they cross-ship. They send the new one on the same courier that will pick up the old one.

    EVGA USA, the same as Corsair USA, have far more respect and better customer service than their European counterparts.
    Shame that but true!
    hope that makes sense to you

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA (ZOTAC) GeForce 9800 GX2

    I'm I right in saying this is a 3 page mini review with no actual performance charts?

    Performance is the most important criterion at this portion of the pricing spectrum, really, and the GeForce 9800 GX2 delivers it in SLI-encrusted spades, as our benchmarks show.
    What benchmarks? Can we see them please

    @ josh: Just a bit of fun

    @ cptwhite: This is a reduction of the full review written by Tarinder: HEXUS.net - Review :: NVIDIA (ZOTAC) GeForce 9800 GX2 - the champ is back! : Page - 1/10. I post it for people who want a snapshot of the review, but obviously you get a lot more information from reading the original. I've edited the passage you quoted to make that clearer.
