Is a single 9600gt worth it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
is it worth it?,i mean getting one of them would save me a lot of money to ger some other things i´m not sure.
Is that or selling my gts(i gave up the sli with it) and getting with some more money an 8800 gt or gts 512.
I mostly play cod4 or C & C,but cod4 is the demanding game,my gts is doing ok but i want to be ready for some other games.The 9600 gt looks good for it´s price,what do you guys think?

You would be better off doing an 8800 GTS 512, it would only be worth it if you could SLI 2 9600's with a lower price then an 8800 GTS 512

The beauty of the 9600gt lies in it's scalability. It had phenomenal gains when placed in SLI as compared to other cards. I would say get it if you plan to go to SLI in the foreseeable future. If dual cards do not seem to be realistic, perhaps a 8800gt, 8800gts, or possibly even a HD4850.

Thanks for your opinions.The thing it that is getting hard to sell my gts i´ve tried but prices were too low so i didn´t,i don´t really plan to sli the 9600 gt anytime soon so it´s better for me to try to sell my gts and then i could even get two gt´s it´s better.
I´ve heard that all the upcoming gt´s are gonna have the short cooler so i´d better hurry up because i don´t like that cooler,i want the large one.Thank you.

Counts about which brand.

XFX is switching to a smaller cooler while eVGA is still using the normal full coverage cooler.
