Insane price drops with 8800GT = Forget 9600GT?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The prices are uk based and on a average with the 2 top online uk retailers for low prices (IMO) - Ebuyer and Scan.

On 9600GT release
9600GT = £130
8800GT = £165

Current
9600GT = £110
8800GT = £130

BFG OC 9600GT: £105
BFG OC 9600GT: £131

Lowest Priced 9600GT - £101
Lowest Priced 8800GT (512mb) - £115

The 9600GT was a god when it came out but now when it comes to pricing. But now many of the 9600GT are more expensive than some of the 8800GT's (512mb).... Nvidia are killing the value of the 9600GT

And it doesnt stop there... they're still going down... every week by a few bucks where the 9600GT stays the same price....

Agreed Do not let the 8800gt fool you. It is a very very powerful card. I would say it keeps up to a 8800GTX side by side other then the memory bandwidth of the 8800GTX. I scored in 3DMARK06 a 19K with my 8800GT's in SLI. And even if it is just one 8800GT card playing COD4 with no problems or lag... Very very nice card for the price vs the 8800GTX. Why the 8800GTX requires a higher powered PSU like a 750W in a SLI setup vs the 8800GT only requires a 600w in SLI. I just bought 2 eVGA 9800GTX SSC from the egg. I plan on doing a side by side test of the eVGA 8800GT SSC SLI vs the eVGA 9800GTX SSC SLI...

Not really.

The 9600 scores a bit lower, but it runs much cooler and you don't need an aftermarket cooler.
In Progress...

not at all, the 8800GT will beat the 9600GT anyday.

The 9600GT just scales better in SLI.

The 8800GT is definitely better than the 9600GT.

Check out benchmarks first before you make outlandish claims.



http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/02/...gt/page13.html

it even beats it at 1680x1050

it is more comparable to a 3870, and the 8800GT beats that outright as well.
Just a comp.
