8800GTS 320MB vs. 9600GT 512MB ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering which of the two would be better.

The 8800GTS is at $150, $120 after a $30 rebate, and the 9600GT is $180, but $130 after rebate and promo.

8800GTS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

9600GT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130328

Comparison chart:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...page=3&bop=And

Any QUICK HELP will be appreciated and rep'd. The promo for the 9600GT ends today.

The 9600GT is better.

The 8800GS is on par with the GTS.

I'd say go for the 9600GT. Higher resale value, better power usage, less heat (higher OC anyone?), and more powerful card.

The 9600GT beats a 8800GTS G80 any day of the week. Plus the 9600GT consumes a lot less power.

Should go for $130 9600GT. The extra $20 is worth it.
