Hello,
I'd like to know which one of these two cards is overall a better video card. I have both but I can only keep one. I've found many articles, some favor 8800GT , some 9600GSO. I should also add that 9600GSO is 768mb and it is a overclocked edition from PNY. The other, 8800GT is a regular PNY 512mb card.
Any help appreciated.
Tom.

Going by this http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=544&card2=563 the 8800GT wins.

Hmm, thanks, interesting website. So you think extra 256mb on GSO is not that much of a deal?

Memory on a GPU isn't that big of a deal, especially if it's just 256mb difference. Shader Processors are more important, plus some other things, like Texture Units, Framebuffer, Raster Operatives, etc. That 8800GT beats the 9600GSO. Plus, Core Clocks is where your performance will come from more than the amount of RAM on the GPU.
