Wow, yeah, I'll definitely look into the GSO. I was expecting to have to pay a lot more for a 9600, so I never even considered any card in the 9 series.

I plan on making my purchase tonight so I can hopefully receive it next week. Should I go with the GSO instead of the Foxconn now?

Definitely since you were planning on the 8600gt 1gb, for $5, that has way more performance than the 8600gt[s]

Ok, good. Looks like I'll stick with that one then.

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

the 9600gso is the same thing as the 8800gs except that its flashed to help increase sales
