Yes, the 9600GT is cheaper. It performs slightly less than the 8800GT, but is much cheaper, and you can find good core clock speed 9600GT's that will almost match the 8800GT in terms of performance and cost nearly $30-50 less.

I'm selling a sealed BFG 8800gt for 180 shipped in the Buy/Sell/Trade section *wink*

And yes, the 8800gt is slightly better.

8800gt>9600gt
2x9600gt>2x8800gt

If you oc the 9600gt you can get the same performance as the 8800gt out of it and still have the great sli scaling...

Werd.

9600GT in SLI even beats out an Ultra in some games. I got over 18k in 3DMark06 with those bad boys.

2 9600gt's sli are just short of a 9800gx2 so obviously they would beat out an ultra in every game, not some...
