Im a little worried if I spend the extra bit of money on the 8800 GTS I wont really see a difference from the 8800 GT. Am I right?

If you had to choose between EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS Video Card with 320MB GDDR3 or a eVGA E-GEFORCE 8800 GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3?

Also, why is the 8800 GT better then a 9600GT OC'd?

Short answer:

8800GTS 320MB < 9600GT < 8800GT

Get the 8800GT. IF you're going to spend extra money, I would get the 512MB 8800GTS (G92) because it has a better cooler than the 8800GT and is also faster.

How much faster tho for the $60-80 more it will cost me?

^ the 512MB GTS is better than the GT. go for it. it has better cooling, it is more silent, and if u want to overclock it later ons. it would be easier (considering the good cooler it has).

i mean these single slot cards are horrible for cooling. most GT users put third party coolers which eventually void the warranty.

I doubt I will ever overclock my video card. Is it true the main reason people buy GTS is because through overclocking it can make up for the increased cost? I read an article that said the GT and GTS are barely different and not worth the extra dough.

if u in tight budget. then get the GT. if it is bit flexible get the (g92) GTS. GTS is like the elder bro of GT. but he is not that old. but when it comes to who is cool. then the elder is the cooler one, n the chicks love him.

^that is in different guy analogy.

A dual-slot cooler will keep your video card and the rest of your PC cooler. It's up to you if that's important, but I think for the sake of durability, it should be on your short list of important things in a PC. So if you can, get a GTS 512 with the dual-slot cooler or a GT with a dual-slot cooler, but the GTS is faster too by a little bit so I think the cost difference is worth it.

No the performance between a GT and a G92 GTS is minimal at best, it wouldn't be worth it to either purchase another card again, or to step-up. Besides, the new cards will be here very soon, a few weeks.

The GTS512 can be overclocked to equal anything thats currently out, making it a top card. If you can afford it, get the g92 8800GTS 512

The 8800GT has 75% more shader processors than the 9600GT (112 against 64) so higher clock speeds won't counteract that difference. Also you can overclock the 8800GT yourself.
