Default Hd4670 - 9600gt - 9600gso

All are the same price, and according to the graphics card rankings, pretty much the same performance. Which would you choose and why? I have a more than capable power supply. I'm wanting it for gaming, when friends come over. The like computer gaming, I'm more of a console gamer. I also want something that can play HD videos without stressing the system too much.

HD 4670 has the lowest power requirements and is probably about the best of the three when overclocked. You can probably find one 4670 cheaper than the others.

I have a more than capable power supply (PC&C 610w, 46A on a single 12v). I only have a 19" monitor, so resolution isn't extremely high, I would be ok with only 512MB over 1GB?

^^ My 8800gs has very similar performance to a 9600gt and there are plenty of games it can't max out at 1440x900.

hear hear, running a 8800GS here too
these 8800GS were such a good deal imho


it seems to be a toss up between the 9600GT and HD 4670
and if that 9600GSO only have 48 stream processors, run

I just found this, it's cheaper than all at $55 ($35 after MIR). It's a 9600GSO with 384MB - 96 SP's - DDR3 - 192-Bit, does this sound better than the others? I know it's not in stock now, but I can probably find one like it, for around the same price.
