Bought a Geforce 9800 GX2

For getting good grades in school, my dad gave me access to Tigerdirect so I could get a Geforce 9800 GX2, 128 GB second instead of 86 GB memory bandwidth (8800 GTX). Am sort of disappointed it’s not DirectX 10.1 (Tigerdirect didn’t say it was Shader Model 4.1)  Actually installing this would be 20 GB slower in theory, but not all games support the 40 GB gain of SLI!

Proof ^

I saw the Xvid clip at Tigerdirect and he said it was crazy that it had 256 stream processors. I don’t know. I agreed with him that it’s all about bragging rights. I deserve it after taking that exam. I expect a second one for my combined Bday and Xmas present as I planning goes. I don’t know how to look excited though, because I went from 7800 GTX to 8800 GTX to 8800 GTX SLI to 9800 GX2 in a matter of two years. O-well.  I got $100 reimbursement from mom and dad!
