You can always overclock the card yourself using RivaTuner to those speeds, so I would say no, save some money.

Yes, but considering you could do it yourself in 10 seconds with rivatuner I reckon you'd be better off spending the money on something else.

EDIT: Looks like I let left the tab open without replying for too long :lol:

I say either is a good deal if you want to OC yourself, that alone makes the one with COD4 a great deal. It's an awesome game btw, even looked spectacular on my old cheapo 7300LE which hopefully will be getting upgraded soon. But an 8800 gs should make it rock. However according to the benchies if you are not comfortable overclocking yourself, I'd go with the evga superclocked card for about 10 bucks more than the one your are looking at. That should be on par with or better in some things than the 9600gt, according to benchies anyway.

COD4 Just rocks. It scales with almost any decent video card. My roomate can play it on his 7900GS at 1280x1024 w/ vsync on and low settings. And with it all cranked up it rocks the hot totty. I actually enjoy it better with a decent sound card, there is alot of great audio added into it.

That's a bit low, I can play it on mostly high at 1280x1024 with my 7900GS, although I may have stronger other components and have volt-modded and overclocked it.

Why the hell would you buy an 8800GS for slightly more buy a 9600GT. Sure it looks bad with only 64 stream processors however they are clocked really high and you also get almost 60GB/s of memory bandwidth which is crucial when cranking up AA, AF and texture settings. The 8800GS is old tech and only has 38 GB/s memory bandwidth

The 8800GS is an overclocking monster, you can get alot more bandwidth than that.

I believe the chips are all 1.0ns Samsung memory chips for the 8800GS, so that means that the chips are rated for 1000MHz operation(2000MHz DDR), and you should probably be able to take them higher, I have the 1.4ns(about 700MHz) chips on my 7900 up to 900MHz with no issues, and Samsung chips are generally of high quality.

Yeah but he is runing a stock Dell Dimensiono 9200 w/ a C2D e6300, 1GB DDR2 667, and a stock 7900GS. I didn't turn EVERYTHING down. I'm sure more memory and a bit of an OC will yield better results.
