will the xfx 9600 gt alpha work well

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Asus a8n32-SLI Deluxe MO using twin GIG Corsair xms-3500ll pro memory and a single PNY 7900gt video card.

I was looking at buying a XFX 9600gt Alpha Dog vid card to replace the Pny

after selling the 7900 to a friend and selling the Call of duty 4 that comes with the 9600 gt (already have one) I can upgrade for about 89 dollars

first, will the card work in the pci-e 1.0 slot?
second, is this upgrade worth 99 dollars?

thanks

my next question is, would a second 7900 gt in SLI be faster than a xfx 9600 alpha dog card??

is the 8800gt a better card for less money????

A 7900GT comes with Call of Duty 4?!?

No, the 7900GT in SLI will not even compare to the 9600GT alone. And yes, the 8800GT is the better card.
