I do believe that an 8800gt whups on a 9600gt.

9600GT is more in line with a Radeon HD 3850/3780, whereas an 8800gt is a notch above the aforementioned cards.

8800GT hands down.

If you're thinking of a 9600GT, get the $140 standard clock version. The OC costs near as much as the 8800GT, but lacks the overall performance.

Get the 9600GT if you want a lower price, lower power draw, and are happy with solid performance.

Get the 8800GT if your budget is more flexible, you have a better PSU (doesn't have to be high end, 450W is fine), and you want higher end performance.

You can get an 8800gt for $130, just do some searching. :)
