9600GT or 8800GT? (not another newbie thread) - Page 3

Alright, thanks.

Oh, and I have another question. I'm currently on my brothers computer, and he has a 7900GS. I'm planning on giving him my 8600GT OC (just one of 'em, he doesn't have an SLI board), but I'm worried that his 2.4ghz AMD dual core will bottleneck it. How can I tell? Or is it just something you learn. Overclocking drastically isn't an option here, he only has stock cooling.

7900GS is a better card, so dont worry about that. also, I purchased that MSI 8800 and its a great deal on an overclocked card.

I am running a 8600GT now on a Celeron 1.6Ghz and it works fine.(I get about 120FPS in CSS)

Well, the thing about this 7900GS is that it's only 256MB in the Vram department, and scored about 800 points lower on the SM 2.0 and SM 3.0 3dmark06 scores than my Oc'd 8600GT. So...I'm confused.

the 8600 series, for some reason, is better than a 7900GS or GT in 3mark, but is inferior in actual gameplay FPS

That's interesting. I wonder why that could be.

Hm.

Well, I have another quick question, so no sense in starting up a new thread for it.

This time, it's about airflow. I'm getting that MSI card that I linked a few posts back, and I'm going to get a fan with it. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835200005) to be exact. I have an antec 900 case, with all the fans in their default positions. (2 in front sucking, one on top blowing, one in back blowing). I was just wondering how I should position my new fan on the side panel? Should I have it sucking air in or blowing it out?

Thanks once more

You might be able to overclock the 9600GT more on stock cooling. I can't OC my evga SC at all. At stock cooling it hits passed 64c when gaming.

Well, I wasn't talking about aftermarket GPU cooling, I was talking about a case fan. Thanks, though.

And I've already decided on the 8800gt.

Has anyone seen SLI benchmarks of the G92s with the new 174.xx drivers?

I'm thinking that any real advantage the 9600GT has as far as SLI scaling is driver related, not hardware. The hardware is really very similar.

Because the 8600GTS has superior shaders, but shaders are not everything. The 7900 has more ROPs and much more memory bandwidth.

Only a handful of games are faster on the 8600.
