This graphics processing unit is the N9800GT T2D512 (version 146) from MSI's Gaming Series, which comes in a bit under $150. The 9800GT is, as you can probably guess, the successor to the 8800GT release a little over a year ago. This offering from MSI is a factory overclocked card with better specs than the 8 series card had to offer.
MSI brings this 9800GT in at 660Mhz Core, 950MHz Memory, and 1625MHz Shader Clock, versus the original 8800GT (Preview & Review) with 600MHz Core, 900Mhz Memory, and 1500MHz Shader Clock. Both the 8800GT and the 9800GT have 112 Stream Processor and a 256bit Memory Interface, but the 9800GT increases the Memory Bandwidth from 57.6 to 60.8GBps and the Texture Fill Rate from 33.6 to 42.2GTps."
