More about : 8800gt 9600gt customisbetter June 16, 2008 3:53:38 AM 8800 is better by alot. 9600 is basically a detuned version of the 8800. not totally true but gets the point across. San Pedro June 16, 2008 4:05:21 AM Shouldn't be a problem to run either card, but make sure your PSU can handle them. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer jaguarskx a c 358 U Graphics card a b V Motherboard June 16, 2008 4:42:51 AM At stock speeds the 9600GT draws 60w of power or 5 amps. The 8800GT draws 99w of power or 8.25 amps. Overclocked versions draws more power and amps. L1qu1d June 16, 2008 4:46:54 AM I've seen a 9600 GT match a 8800 GT when overclocked, the thing is that the 8800 GT can overclock 2 I'd say 8800 GT to play it safe, and apparently Crysis loves the GT Mousemonkey a c 271 U Graphics card a b V Motherboard June 16, 2008 5:07:58 PM jaguarskx said:At stock speeds the 9600GT draws 60w of power or 5 amps.
