Analysis and Conclusion
After testing this card for quite a while we found it to be both stable and cool running. Heat is ultimately the enemy of all electronics and not just CPU’s so the cooler your card runs the longer it will last. The Sparkle Calibre 9800 GTX+ is able to crack out an excellent framerate in all the games we tested as well as doing so at high resultions. Given the current price vs performance of 9800 GTX cards the choice becomes a no brainer for those consumers looking for an excellent buy while truly keeping them in the game and competitive.
Our thanks to Sparkle for providing the Calibre 9800 GTX+ for this review.
If you need high end gaming performance with a winning design that sets it apart from the crowd then place your crosshairs squarely on the Calibre 9800 GTX+ and pull the trigger. Bang! your opponents are pushing up daisies.
We are happy to give the Calibre 9800 GTX+ our Approved Hardware Award for being a great buy with great performance.
