8800GS or 9600GT? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
complaining about cards that are 40% cheaper than here seems so stupid from our side (EU)
go for 9600 IF you go SLI, or go for 8800GT if you wan a single card system.
Uhh.. Thing

9600GT's performance is between 8800GS and 8800GT so pick the 9600GT. On another note, extra $30 or so from 9600GT, you can get a 8800GT, which is better than 9600GT.

I'm ordering a msi 9600gt now.

An oced 9600gt will be on the same level as a stock 8800gt and can even edge it out by a couple of fps. Of course you can oc the 8800gt too, but my point is the performance is close. Not enought of a difference to be paying an extra $50 for the 8800gt imo, especially if you run lower-mid res and have a slow cpu.

If I saw the prices drop and it was like a $20-25 difference then it'd be worth it.

You have to keep in mind the review sites have some crazy quad core to keep the cpu from bottlenecking and effecting the benchmarks. Honestly on a 3800+ the performance difference between the two will probobly be barely noticable if at all.

Battlefield 2142: 4xAA, High settings, 1024x768, 30-45 fps
Crysis: no AA, Medium/High settings (mainly medium), 1024x768, 30-45 fps
I can get those frames on Crysis on 1440x900 with a 8600gts. Maybe it's because you're running vista. I hope when I get my 9600gt it at least pulls playable frames on high.

The 8800 GS was a good deal when I got it recently for $110 after a mail-in rebate. With the stock cooler I overclocked an additional 24% by raising the GPU from 580 MHz to 720, shaders 1450 MHz to 1800, and the memory 1400 MHz to 2000 MHz, a 43% overclock. This videocard may be on par with a 9600 GT and close to 8800 GT graphics, non-overclocked of course.

At 1280 x 1024 , Crysis all max settings gives me very playable frame rates and an avg 35fps at 1024 x 768.

Also with COD4 at 1600 x 1200 all max settings I get an avg 40+fps
And with Supreme Commander at 1600 x 1200 all max settings - 35+fps

I think its now available on NewEgg.com for $120

Why am I getting such crap frame rates. I know it isn't my processor...it doesn't get up to 100% (at least on BF2142...Tom's Hardware was getting much better frames than me!)

Me either. I would say the 8800GT by far. The only advantage the 9600GT has is it scales better in SLI config.

The 9600GT is about 90% of the performance of an 8800GT for 80% of the price. That's not too bad a value. It's a good product that people discount because: it's a 600, and the 9800's appear to be terrible.

But the 9600 is a great card, with limited power usage, high clocks, and good scaling and overclocking. I would have saved the $50.00 if I was buying today, but the 9600GT came out after I built Suzanne.
