I had that card, the 9600xt, loved it had to retire it do to lack of shader model 3.0 support. It now shamefully sits in the basement computer, so bottlenecked we are no longer on speaking terms

That's all that matters to me.

I read your post, but you should read mine. I'm saying that I don't see how an even better card than the 9600GT is comparable to the 8800GTX. Price/FPS, yes. Price/performance, no. For the last time, FPS does not equal to performance, it's only a fraction of it. I don't care if you can get 24FPS, if it's not stable at that then it's pointless. The only effective way to compare FPS is to compare the minimum FPS, then see if you get any stutters.

No wonder you have dual 3870x2, only thing that could hold such a beast of a monitor at bay.

but we are talking about SLI GTs not a single one, I only referenced one to state one card gives good performance in Crisis, and by adding too, based on my results with a single one, SLI would beat one GTX.

I must be honest with myself and agree with you, that one 9600GT did have much lower minimum framerates (that is important to me in gaming also) versus my GTX, but I cant comment on what the minimum framerates would be with SLI 9600gts.

The article itself shows that they're similar. But then here's the thing: We all know a single 9600GT consumes much less power and produces much less heat than the 8800GTX, but when you put 2 together, you have to have a SLI motherboard and power consumption and heat would double, summing up to higher than that of the 8800GTX. In this article they used a 680i board, but if you were to put a 8800GTX in a P35 board you would get better performance. Fact is, nVidia chipsets on Intel are only good if you're determined to run SLI, but Intel chipsets are miles better for single card. Then you get dual monitor capability with a single card instead of switching SLI on and off like I do now.

Really thats kind of funny as I've been running 1680x1050 for over a year with both sets of cards...

TWO mid range cards outperform a hi end card from last gen. Wow way to go Nvidia.

LMAO, they call this progress??? This card is a joke, and is no closer to playing crysis than anything last gen. Nvidia is in a slump. At least ATI is being smart and developed a new GPU for their next set of cards.

Hopefully Larabee from intel will FORCE some competition into this stagnant market.

Take the $ youd spend on 2 9600GT's and buy ONE strong card. Its just more logical. The u have the option of adding a second one someday.
