The 8800GTX is going to be a better performer than the 9600GT. It has 176 million more transistors on it's GPU and has 1.5 times the memory bandwidth. Bang for your buck is a different story...

As far as I'm aware the 8800GT is quite a bit faster and can be had for about $20 more than the 9600GT. Yes, it's more expensive but when you're paying $180 or whatever for a card, $20-$30 ain't all that much to add on top.

The 9600 runs at 700MHz though, the 8800GTX is only 630.

The 9600 is a budget card designed for good but cheap performance. The 8800 series cards do still offer better performance.

So in other words: wait for a 9800GTX. :p

That's what I've decided to do, but then again part of that is because the CPU I want isn't avalable yet.

I bought an 8800 GTS 512 the day before yesterday, and I'm very happy with with it except for one thing....the 8 series apparently does not support video mirroring! :mad:

I used to watch stuff full screen on my TV whilst running them on my PC, can't do that without lowering the resolution of my monitor now...it's ridiculous, my old 6600GT had no problems at all with it

Easy fix, install both, simply swap the GPU's around in Display Settings or the NV CP when you want to do what you want. If I had another PCIe slot, I'd install the old 6600 GeForce so that I can display what's on my Monitor on my TV aswell, only I don't have that slot :( Damn!

That pretty much sums it up. Remember, the 9600 is meant to replace the 8600's, not the 8800's.
