Mine is already in the mail. I hope to see some nice performance increases and hopefully I won't be too CPU limited..

YES, processing completed. Newegg is on step 5. I hate when processing finishes on Fridays, because I wont get the package untill Mon-Wed :(. If it's CPU limited, I'll just spend a few bucks on a (dare I say) Phenom until I finish the Intel build.

well how doers it compare to 8800Ultra any need for upgrade to 9xxx series?

Well, an 8800 Ultra is much faster than a 9600GT. However, the 9800GTX will most likely be faster than the 8800 Ultra, but not by enough to justify an upgrade...

I am afraid Athlon 64 X2s and Phenoms are CPU limited too, been reading all Geforce 9600GT reviews and then did some benchmarked only found out it was much faster with Core 2 Duo and Quad than my Geforce 8800GTX with Athlon 64 X2 4400+ ever with 16xAA & 16AF at 1920x1080.

Here some tests I ran compared to Q6600 on elitebastards.com review

Half Life 2 Episode 2

1920x1080

9600GT with Q6600: 64.3fps
8800GTX with 4400+: 45fps

1920x1080 16xAA & 16AF

9600GT with Q6600: 50.18fps
8800GTX with 4400+: 30fps

Lost Planet

1920x1080

9600GT with Q6600: Cave: 56.8fps Snow: 44.6fps
8800GTX with 4400+: Cave: 21fps Snow: 20fps

Athlon 64 X2 4400+ cant keep up with Geforce 8800GTX, it seriously need upgrade to Q9450. Avoiding Phenom, the quad core wont give you much improve performance in games compare to Athlon 64 X2 and also triple core will give you lower game performance than Athlon 64 X2 4400+ with previous Geforce 7800GTX card scored around 4850 3DMark 06 2 years ago while Phenon 8600 with Geforce 7900GS card which has equal performance as Geforce 7800GTX scored 4624 3DMark 06.

I am upgrading from a 7800GT. I don't think I will be too cpu limited. I only play at 1280x1024, still have a 17in monitor.

yep thats exactly what im doing too. Im upgrading my 7900 gt to this card and then buying a sli mobo for a nice core 2 cpu and 2 gigs of ram.

oh and im putting them in a torture rack haha. I already have my hiper 880(1000) sli/quad sli power supply with 4 12v rails.

I have decided that from now on, I will only buy cards that cost less than Ģ150. So this seems like a good bet I suppose. I just need something thast can rum sim cities societies and Counterstrike at 1920 x 1200.

Judging by Mike C's 9600 GT SLI tests it looks like awesome value for money,2 cards for less than one 8800 gtx and significally better performance than a 8800 Ultra.Good luck Zapa,post them benches when you can :thumbsup:

Well I got it today and it was an easy setup. I had it up and running in about 30 minutes. Thus far I am very happy with the Performance. With the latest drivers 174.16 I didnt get any errors in any games with the exception of Hitman: Blood Money. Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2142, and Battlefield 2 all run maxed out beautifully. Call of Duty 2 and Medal of Honor Airborne also run awesome. Tomorrow I will run a 3dmark06 bench to see how I fare!

I'll be sure to post those benchies up. I'm getting 1 96GT tomorrow with my motherboard, and I'll be getting my other GPU and PSU sometime at the end of the week. Jesus man, I'm all jittery, I can't wait. :headexplode:
