8800GTS 320MB vs. 9600GT 512MB ? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
the 9600GT should be about the same as a 8800GTS 640MB performance wise, so its better than the 320mb.

The 9600 isnt that far ahead of the 8800GTS, and they are both very overclockable(my GTS runs at ~595Mhz and I havent pushed it). I say look for a used 8800GTS; there is on in the classifieds for $100 shipped...

But if you must have new, go for the 9600GT. It is a great card and will hold its value.

or spend a few more $$ and get a 8800GT 512 for $155 or a 8800GTS g92 512 for $170

if you cant, the 9600gt is better than the 8800gts 320 g80.

I personally would have gone for an 8800GT 512, doesn't cost much more than the 9600GT and a bit better performance. Not by a HUGE margin, but noticeable.

9600gt all day.. but based on your board, i think it would utilize the 8800gts much more, OC it - the thing will handle it.. that card will run cool all day.

And the 9600GT will run a lot cooler than a 8800GTS, and completely outperform it
