[citation][nom]deadlockedworld[/nom]What kind of performance would this have? Would it compete with a 5830?[/citation]
It would probably perform the same as the 9800 GX2. Since Nvidia hasn't been pumping out anything new, they have to make their money somehow.
Kevin it doesn't take to much working out why Galaxy are producing this card. Have a look on Newegg and see how many GTX285's you can buy these days, Nvidia are simply not producing new high end chips as there to costly to produce, if they were making money on it they wouldn't have ceased production even if Fermi is just around the corner.
This then leaves Nvidia's board partners with a problem, they need stock to sell to generate cash to pay the wages so companies like Galaxy have a look at what's available and make do with what they have. If Galaxy needs to produce a card like this then you known there's a good reason for it - it's not as if Galaxy have a side line in motherboards like other board partners.

What old graphics? AFAIK the 8800/9800s etc are more or less the same in terms of performance.
Ugh why not just get a 9800gx2? Is this just two 9800gts in SLI or 9800gtx+'s in SLI? Because if its the GTX+ in SLI, then it is still a pretty good config, too bad there are no SLI bridges though. I just recently replaced my 9800gtx+ with a 5850 so I would know that if this card is based on to g92 gtx+ chips then it is still good for almost all games and apps...
[citation][nom]Ehsan W[/nom]if that's true it could be good. Since we know the 4870 got raped by the gtx 280, and i think 9800gx2 was a little...weaker?.so could 5750 get assraped, cuz of bad performance....[/citation]
I'm trying to quantify this and have a question. Is assraped worst than raped?
