Need to sell this baby to help me Step Up my 8800GTS to 9800GX2. This 9600GT is actually a Step Up from EVGA, pretty much new. Just did some testing on it to make sure it's not a DOA. It never stayed in the slot beyond that one day testing time. It works perfectly. It has never been registered.

I think $140/shipped is fair for this card (consider it's pretty much new).

I accept Paypal, Money Order or Cashier's Check.

Register the card with EVGA, then you can choose another card to trade it in for, usually paying only the difference in cost between the 2.

I have 7 days left.:(

Good luck on the sale btw, should go for that price.

Hey, which is the better performer- the 8800GTS 512MB or the 9600GT? Comparing specs it almost seem the 9600GT should be a bit faster since it has higher clocks... it's also a little be less expensive than the new 8800GTS.

Sorry for the slight derailment, just curious. :o

8800 GTS 512 > 9600GT
+1

I don't think the 9600GT performs very good at high resolutions in games. I myself was torn on what card to purchase and I've decided on the 8800GT. If I could afford it, I would have gone with the 8800GTS (G92).

For cereals???

Hmm...

How accurate is this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143122)? At that price, that BFG would be a steal.

Sorry for this thread jack again. I'm just trying to decide what to get to replace my dual 7900GTs. :o I figured with the higher clock speeds the 9600GT would be where it's at.

Someone told me the other day to stay away from the older 640MB cards and get the newer 512MB (G92) cards. Hey, Redeemed, check out eVGA's B Stock listing.

What do you mean by their "B stock listing"?

That's the card I have now. Actually it's the OC2 edition so it's a little above that one. I was still close to "upgrading" to the 512meg version many times.

8800GTS 512 is faster than 9600GT. I have both and when I did the benchmark (granted, I was only using 3DMark06), the 8800GTS scored just about 1000 better (10xxx vs. 11xxx).

If you can find the 8800GTS 640mb card for a good price ,it is still a good card,at high resolutions or with a lot of FSAA it can be faster then the 8800GT .It is pretty close to the performance of a 8800GT when overclock like most people run them.That a good price for the 9600GT.

According to the product description for that BFG 8800GTS 640MB, it also has 112 stream processors. That's what I was wondering about if that page was accurate or not... cause that'd be screamin' fast if it did I'd imagine. Well, for the price any ways.

Okay, last off topic question... I promise OP! :p

8800GTS 640MB vs. 9600GT... which is the better performer?

I really loved my 8800GTS 640MB cards, and I'm contemplating buying another two for my new rig. But if the 9600GT is the better card... I'll just purchase the OP's (assuming it is still available) and pickup a second one come the end of next week.

Thanks for your input. :D

I would think the GTS 640MB. However, two 9600GTs in SLI would probably rock. I loved my GTS 640MB when I had it. I don't think you'll be disappointed either way you go, whether it's a single 8800GT, a single 8800GTS (either kind) or 9600GT SLI.

What size monitor do you have, Redeemed?

The old 8800s are still better than the 9600s. Only the 320s suffer a bit at times due to lower memory.

A 22" Samsung. 1680x1050 is my monitor's native resolution. So the dual 8800GTS 640MB is what ya'll recommend then...? I'm really liking the price for this guys 9600GT though... TOO MANY DECISIONS!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :lol:

that's a nice price. I have this card and it rocks as long as you aren't playing at really high resolutions or want to max out crysis.

Thanks. 8800GTS 640MB it is for me then.

Sorry for the slight derailment jcniest5... I'm missing my two 640MB GTSs, and think I'll be happiest getting two of those for my next rig. :D

well just to let you know (I should have mentioned it in my previous post) I'd consider really high resolutions above 1680x1050 because that's what I use. This card can run most if not all games fine at that res besides Crysis, so if you plan on playing Crysis a lot then you probably do need something faster but I think most people get bored of it rather quickly.

I love Crysis... can't get enough of it. And with my old rig I could play it easily at 1680x1050, 4xAA, 16xAF, all in-game options set to "High" and never have it dip below 25fps. Well, it did that *when* SLi was working right. So I know the 640MB GTSs are capable of playing that game just fine. And that was all with a stock FX-60 so I know the cards were bottlenecked. I'm sure with a faster processor to feed 'em they'll be even happier. :p

Though for only $140 he really makes it difficult to say "no" to this offer...
