I owned D, and it really was a great card.

However, I voted for the 9600GT, for a few reasons.

1.) The number is higher, so it must be better.
2.) It is built on a chip that scales better. (G94 v G92, I believe)
3.) Everyone owns an 8800GT.
4.) The number is higher, so it must be better.

Refer to post above as something not to go by.

Original 8800GT out performed original 8800GTS. Fact. Thus this is gibberish.

"The number is higher, so it must be better" - Dude, read a few reviews. Just type '9600GT review' in Google and you'll get a few.
Even though it scales better the 8800GT has better grunt which makes up for it.
Everyone owns an 8800GT? Is that supposed to be a good or bad thing?

Just making sure.

Because if you are right I will be S*%&^& myself Wait, its already been proven to be FALSE.

Well someone already said at stock the 9600GT was better in his experience, so there's at least one review that says otherwise. However, I was being sarcastic.

And if you look at half of the sig rigs here, people are running Corsair PSUs, Antec 900 cases, and 8800GTs. Whether you think that's good or bad is up to you. In this thread alone, there are 4 Corsair PSUs, and 2 Antec 900s. I won't comment on the 8800GT in this thread, as it's bound to be in a majority of the sig rigs.

it seems as the performance is pretty close, it's just a matter of overclocking performance.

so therefore the 9600 is the newer card and the 8800 GT does have proven performance (this doesn't mean better performance than the 9600, it just means performance of the chip has been proven).

then the more reviews i read the more i get confused.

so lets just keep it at which branded option a,b,c,d should i get.

it basically comes down to evga, so now, single slot or dual slot?

Why is the dual slot eVGA cheaper than the single?

Same core and memory!

Ok, I see the everybody-owns-it as neutral. Everybody has it as it is proven to be good.

'someone' said it was better? If you were sarcastic why did you vote for it lol?

Anyway, I don't see why the EVGA dual slot is on same price level as the stock EVGA one? The dual slot is supposed to be better or are all 8800 series cards getting cheaper because the top cards are being bumped down as well?

EDIT: If you have the space on your motherboard, in theory the dual slot should be better. C! But D if you want to keep some of your PcIE slots.

Because dual slot coolers are inconvenient? I guess. I would go eVGA or XFX. They have the best warranties. If you plan on aftermarket cooling and/or volt mods, I would go XFX. Their warranty is more suited to enthusiasts, and they sometimes have black PCBs, which are awesome.
