Default Graphics face off

EVGA 8800 GT 512mb


EVGA 9600 GT SC 512mb



each one has its pros and cons.

the 8800 ive "heard" is faster then the 9600 GT but not by much.
Reason why i kinda lean away from it cause ive heard she gets super hot

I WOULD go with the 9800 GTX BUT this card is WAY to long to fit in my case safely with the heat it puts out.

I just want to be able to play some CoD4 on high graphics. well and EQ2 but i know if i can rock CoD4 i can pwn eq2.

thanks a TON for the help guys and gals!
Have a nice day!

asus 9600 gt plays cod4 on high and is the cheapest there, but you might want to upgrade if you have a rather large screen...

i thought most 8 series and like all 9 series cards were the same length?

anyway, like gurusan said, the new 4850 will stomp all over any of the cards you listed and is only $200
