Well that was a totally bogus headline

Biggest performance gain my ass.

Intel has a 400% performance leap! Quad core outperforms single core by 4 times!

I'm a bit disappointed, when I saw the headline I thought that their new card would at least outperform the 8800GT by a little, not totally underperform. It does make the 8800GT 256MB version 100% obsolete though, since the 9600GT outperforms that by a little, and is cheaper. (I thought the 256MB 8800GT was silly to begin with.. such a powerful card but with no memory to take advantage!)

Just seems a bit silly, and a VERY false headline.

They came out w/ a card that totally whoops a crappy card.. but doesn't surpass their current high end cards.. so it's not really a breakthough at all.

Its meant to be a affordable mid range card. To replace the crappy 8600 series.

I know, but it's almost as expensive as the 8800GT.. If you're going to spend $200 on a card, you can probably afford to spend $250 on a card.

I didnt have an extra $50.00 to spend. And my card was only $180.00 so I guess that isnt really a true theory.

The 9600GT seems to be marketed to current 8600GT, GTS owners. It's a good card and a better option than the 8800GS, which is Nvidia's response to the 3850. Now the 8800GS will fade away like Ati's temporay card 2900Pro, which was marketed to generate $ for AMD using 2900XT's that didn't make the grade.

Well, actually, the spread is smaller then I thought.

Your card was 180, this one is 220 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127329

(there's also a $20 mail in rebate, but i never fill those out so i don't count that as savings). Nice cooler too! Although it makes it a 2 slot card.

Granted, right now the actual performance difference between the 9600 and the 8800 isn't too big, but if I were buying a new card right now, I think I'd still have to go w/ the 8800GT, at least until the new 9800 series comes out and crushes it.
