The 8800GT is worth the extra cost over the 3870 imo. Also keep in mind new cards will be released at the end of this month.

Default Re: 8800GT vs 9600GT

I'd personally go for a 4870
but if not, 8800 GT > 9600 GT

in single card configurations, 8800 GT > 3870
but in crossfire/SLI, 3870's can edge out 8800 GT's

though 3870's also use a bit less power (the difference is bigger on idle), run cooler, and are quieter, but have dual slot coolers.. that might or might not prevent you from using PCI-PCI-E slots you want to use
