8800GTS 640mb (G90) Vs 9600 GT SLI

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guy i need some help here.
i've currently running a evga 780i m/b with a sparkle 8800gts 640mb (g90)
i would like to upgrade but with limited cash flow which means the following.
  • I can sell the 8800gts 640mb and buy two evga 9600gt ssc and run in sli (i can get them at a very good price)
  • or i can try and find another 8800gts 640mb
but after reading a number of reviews im not too should which way to go. so the fourms unlimited wisdom would be much appricaiated.

ok
get a 8800gts 512 g92
it is the best for overclocking and is way faster than any 9600gt, this also would let you have a sli upgrade path in the future

I'm running a pair of 9600's and love it but I'm sure sli'd 8800gts's would kill it.

Its G80.

And don't bother with SLi on a 19" display, just get a 8800GTS 512mb (G92) or an 8800GT.

EDIT: You changed it to 22" :\\

Still, don't get another GTS G80 and if you can get a 8800GT or 8800GTS 512mb over a 9600GT
