IMHO, correction: 8800GT, then 3870, then 9600GT

EDIT: that gigabyte one is a 256mb version! For now best sub-200 card would be HD 3870. I've heard those can really OC once unlocked from the bios the MSI one is sub-200 after MIB but w/ shipping it's over 200. and w/ tax, forgettaboutit

Is there a review comparing 8800gt, 9600gt and 3850/70? just want to see how much better a 3870 is than a 9600 gt.
