9600gt vs hd3870 same price

Why two threads? The answer is the same, the 9600gt is a better performer. More fps, OC well, handles AA better.

On the contrary, the 3870 is faster. Correct me if I'm wrong.

i have had bad expiriences with ATi in the past. drivers are crap. i would go with nvidia, but thats personal preference.

as far as data goes, the two manufactures trade the top spot, right now Nvidia is at the top w/ the gtx295

as for ur cards, the 9600GT comes out on top of most of the benchmarks i just looked at

Crysis bench

the 9600gt also seems to respond better to SLI/Crossfire. look at the other pages on that link i gave u.

both of the cards are the same price, the 9600gt has better performance and responds slightly better to dual cards.

overall, i vote 9600GT from the facts and personal preferance.

the 9600gt is an open box but the 3870 is new same price which would you buy? i wont use two cards.

I don't know; I'd probably go with the 3870 if it were me. I'm an ATI fanboy but I do own an 8800GT.

There's some scores.
