    @SinghKing: I previously had 2x 9800GTX+ and I can tell you now, the 560 is a worthy upgrade, even more so from 1x 9800GTX+. The extra VRAM allows you to really crank up the eye candy and AA. The performance boost was very noticeable for me, as I game on 1920x1200.

    You won't be disappointed.

    That's what I did, I had a GTX460 768MB before scoring a GTX560OC Ti. I didn't feel like selling the GTX460, and since my mobo has 2x PCIe x16 slots (runs at 8x each when both slots are used) I figured, "Why the heck not?!". Sure, not many games use PhysX (which is dying a slow death, if you have a spare nV card (like your 9800GTX+), go for it!

    It seems that the 9800GTX+ was very popular back in the day... this upgrade seems a common trend

    The CPU is bumped up a little , I've got it water cooled so I could push it if I want to but I don't see the need or have the desire to mess with it.

    Here are my Heaven tests

    Test 1 9800GTX

    Test 2 GTX 570

    You can wait all your life and the chances are there will be something even better lurking on the horizon... :)

    As it stands the 560Ti represents the best bang for buck Nvidia GPU out there. As long as you feed it well with a speedy CPU it will dance circles round your 9800GTX+.
