Help me out guys. Have another rig running I7-750 stock with 6gb ram on gigabyte UD3R ..

Whats gonna be my best graphics option.....

9600 GSO 768mb single card
OR
9500GT 1mb in SLI ?

I have all these cards laying in their boxes for the wifes build, and she asked what one would be the best , and I was actually unsure.

no matter what 9500 it is (ddr2 or ddr3 sli or not) stay with GSO. it will be better anyway

I don't think they mad a 1mb edition of the 9500Gt but the SLI 9500 SHOULD be better, though neither are awesome performers, don't expect huge frames or higher resolution than 1680 x 1050

I'd also stay with the 9600 GSO... Assuming that you have the 96 core version of GSO the 9500GT in SLI wont come close

Tech, based on the scale, 9500 SLI should be better than 9600GSO. Here is the link shown some numbers. Probably stay with that 768mb 9600GSO for less headache.

I am replacing the GSO with my new 6970's for eyefinity, and at the same time putting together another rig. I was getting decent frame rates with this card on a 22 inch monitor.

For the specs I listed, what would be a decent card without going enthusiast? Just want a slolid performer.

9600gso. While the cards have roughly the same gpu and memory clocks, the 9600 has nearly 4 times the number of shader processors, giving it higher performance than even 2 9500gt's. And considering that SLI scaling for the 9xxx series wasn't linear, you're better off with the single 9600gso.

This review is a little bit aged, and I think it's comparing the older 9x00 chipset, but the results should still be indicative:

Second this. My 8800GTs did get an average 60% improve (except in Vantage where they got 2x performance over a single one). 9600GTs were roughly that aswell.

GSO is ages faster on intensive applications.

9600 gso please. It will still play most games at high settings with your cpu. I used a 9600gso in my sig rig for a few months when I had to RMA a card. SLI with 9500's is just silly.
