Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 720.
The GeForce GT 720 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800 GTX, and so the GeForce GT 720 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800 GTX when running the latest games.
The GeForce GT 720 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800 GTX, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 9800 GTX has superior memory performance.
The GeForce 9800 GTX has 41.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 720, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800 GTX is noticeably better than the GeForce GT 720.
The GeForce GT 720 has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800 GTX has 128. The GeForce GT 720 having 64 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 9800 GTX performs better when taking into account other relevant data.
The GeForce GT 720 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800 GTX requires 140 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce 9800 GTX, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GeForce GT 720. The GeForce 9800 GTX requires 105 Watts more than the GeForce GT 720 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800 GTX may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 720.
