Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PUHF4 GeForce 8800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

And regardless of what people will say here (due to the 256mb mem) it can handle even the 1680x1050 res, and max out all games.

i have mine oc'd and i get really good fps, and the oc really does increase performace.

I have a different version though, but performance is identical.

The only difference I see is the 8800 has a faster clock, more stream processors, and the only thing the 9600 has over it is 512 ram and 256 bit.

Can you tell me what's better?
