Newegg is buried in 9600's. Palit has finally started selling on this side of the pond... same with Zotac.

They are really cheap How do they compare to the 8600GT? I expect they trample all over them but would it be worth looking into one?

the 9600gt is ment to compete with the 3870 x2's so expect performance to be around the same

hmm?! 9600GT is a mid range card. The supposed 9800GX2, is 3870X2's competition.
