Default 9600gso ????

So just getting back from the beach and looking on new egg i see this card Newegg.com - ASUS EN9600GSO MAGIC/HTDP/512M GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards it's 100 bucks w/ a rebate. so i'm looking at the pics and i notice that the gpu core is offset to the back of the card. and further inspection of this card says it's 512mb and 128bit but only gddr2??? did new egg get thier specs wrong or it this a different type of card? will it preform better than a 8800gs/9600gso with 384mb. and is it even worth purchasing. because i have been looking at a couple of 8800gs/9600gso or mabye a 8800gt.

Now im not certain, but this could be one of those 9600 gso's that you can turn into a 8800 gts 512 with some mods. They might of gotten it wrong though.

i think that you can only do that with the galaxy 9600gso. but i think the memory is kind've slow for this card.

The 9600gso is just a renamed 8800gs so its 192bit gddr3. The memory on that card is clocked really low so I recommend the evga 8800gs.

Newegg.com - EVGA 384-P3-N851-AR GeForce 8800 GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

As far as I know being able to turn them into a 8800gts 512mb was just a scam since the website about it contained a virus.

Actually its not, the report I gave was from that site trying open a pop-up of Errorsafe's site (however it was just a copy of the report on another site)

But the Galaxy 9600GSO Superclocked (according to xtremesystems) does actually turn into an 8800gts g92 because of the memory chips, but that is 512mb, I think it could be done..

EDIT: the Asus Magic one is not, its GDDR2 and 128bit, I'm guessing no..

Weird that it's gddr2 only, I'd say definitely a no go. That memory is just too slow, go for the good stuff.
