3 x 8500gt vs 9600gt

I have the 780i mobo and I already have 2 8500gt's cause one of my friends was gonna throw em out (???) no clue why...
but anyways I was wondering is it worth it to buy a 9600gt and go with that only or should i buy another 8500gt and use that?

8800gt is too much money for me right now

  1. The 8500gt cannot do tri sli so buying a third would only be for the 6 monitor ability. I believe the 1 9600gt(64 stream processors) would out perform 2 8500gt(16 stream processors x2).
  2. wow that's the weirdest thing I've seen in a while: sli'ed 8500gt's :heink:

    no offence :)

    Non taken but since I was on a budget I just took these for free instead of buying a new one lol...
  4. From experience, going from one 8500gt to a 9600gt was earth shattering, in the graphics department. And its quieter
  5. edit: nevermind, not sure why I read that as 9500GT.

    Sell the 8500GT's and buy an 8800GS, 9600GSO, 9600GT, 8800GT, etc.
  6. or get one 4850
  7. all i can say is get rid of the 780i mobo, nvidia,'s mainboards are crap
  8. I guess i will go to a 9600gt when i get the money then =p
  9. Get a 9600gso
  10. wat resolution do u game on.......if its lower than 1280x1024, den u would be fine with a 3850.
