    Default 8800gt or 9600gt - SLI?

    I have been looking at a new graphics card, and been reading about the new 9600GT by nVidia. It looks like the 8800GT and 9600GT have similar performance with the 9600GT showing great performance with antialiasing enabled.

    I went on newegg and found these cards:

    XFX - 9600GT 512MB 256-bit with 650 Mhz core $180
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150277

    eVGA 8800GT - 512MB 256-bit with 600 Mhz core $230
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=N82E168141

    The 9600GT looks to be $50 cheeper, but similar performance so I would go for the XFX 9600GT in this case cuz I save some money.

    Does this seem like a good choice?

    Two 9600GT would be cheeper then 2 8800GT, but would this SLI combo have enough performnace to be worth the extra $100 for the 8800GT's?

    If you are looking for bang for your buck then get the 9600.......see the review on the MSI N9600 GT OC 512mb(great for $180ish on newegg rite now.......If you looking to spend a bit more for a bit more performance also then go with the 8800gt. I would like to go for the 9600 myself..cuss money is short now....

    9600GT + 2gigs more ram is better then 8800GT and is about the same price. The 9600 is the replacement for the 8800GT. Why not a 8800GTX $319 = 9600GT SLI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143080
