9600GT Sli VS 9800gtx

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
hi.
I need help deciding. I own a 9600GT and was wandering is a 9600GT in Sli would perform better than a 9800GTX.
I'm getting ready for FarCry2.
all inputs will be helpful.
I will overclock the 9600GT a bit higher. I have a E6750 at 2.9GHz wit 2gigs of 800 rams.

yes it would, but idealy if you were to start a new computer from scratch a 4850 or 9800GTX or 9800GTX+ would be better.

With that 19" it wouldn't at that resolution. I'd just stay with the 9600gt for as long as possible, the 9800gtx isn't too much of an improvement.

I am also getting a 24" LCD.
I have read so many reviews on this topic but I am still debating.
Is it wiser to sell my 9600GT and get a 9800GTX?
By Oct I will be getting a Q6600 or a 3GHz+ dual core 45nm.
Thank u guys for your inputs.

9600GT SLI is a great setup, and would likely outperform a single 9800GTX across the board. Considering you already have one, I'd definitely just get another (and of course, OC the crap out of them!) if you need more performance.

Yeah, the 9600GT SLI would outperform a 9800GTX easily.

But SLI 9800GTX's will destroy SLI 9600GT's.

thx guys.
I have decided to just sli my 9600Gts cause I honestly believe that we would never need a higher end setup at the moment or atleast for a good 6mths.
Will rep u guys once I'm on a pc. using a PDA atm

I own a 22' LCD, EVGA 750i FTW and 2 x 9600GT. I got 16850 3DMark06 score with my spec. I have yet to see a single 9800GTX setup got a higher 3DMark06 score than me.
