there is only 2 9600 (9600GT and 9600GSO) against lots of 8800 series cards
i think 9600GT($120) or 9600GT SLI($240) is the best bang for the buck

9800GTX is also an awesome overclocker

9600GT SLI is better

Yeah sorry I m not into over clocking my GPU's. So I got used to dealing with stock speeds. Good point though 30$ more for something you can do fairly easily and quickly.

Well if they come out soon the 9600gso's in SLI will outperform the 9600gt's SLI in every resolution, at every setting and would be around the same price....

Only the 8800gt's run warm as heck itself and then the other G80's, but a cheap replacement for an Akimbo Cooler is really great for fixing the problem on GT's, but for the price of an 8800gt + Akimbo Cooler you could get an 8800gts 512mb g92 for the same price

So most people will more then likely pick up a 9600GT instead. While most of the 9800 cards are not too much expensive then the old 8800's. So more then likely, I m predicting that more people will buy 9600's and 9800's rather then the 8800's.
I dont know what your rambling on about, my 8800gt never breaks 60C on load, and idles at 43C. Its also silent at 50% fan speed.....Akimbo cooler ftw.

9 series is not really the 9 series, just an extended 8 series.

Judging from your sig, you dont own an 8 series card so you cant make that assumption.

8800 gt 512 sli is slightly better then 9600 gt sli. And you can find 8800 gt's for around the same price as 9600 gt's.

Oh, and Incase you guys haven't noticed. There is a 8800 gts 512 for around $169 after MIR on the egg. I still would buy that over a 9800gtx. (UNLESS YOU LIVE IN CANADA)

Agreed, my 8800 gt hasn't bumped over 50c's with the new cooler on it, and that is on load.
