All i can say is look at the pic. Its the combined results of about 10 tests. 9600 is definatelly better with AA/AF, but in pure no-effects graphics its the 3870. Depends on how you play, and also, for how much can you get them.

This was debated pretty extensively on another topic. Look for it. I go with the 3870, so did the poster.

9600GT if you're on a budget and like your AA/AF. 3870 if you dont' use any of those and have the extra cash...but if you have the cash for a 3870 why not go for an 8800GT? Around the same price but the 8800GT should trounce the 3870 in just about everything.
