  1. I didn't know a 9600GSO came with 256MB (typically 384MB or rare 768MB). But regardless, Avoid a 256MB version of either IMO unless you game at 1280x1024 without fsaa or lower. If the price difference is huge, then they may be worth considering, but with such cheap 512MB 9600GT, 8800GT, and 9800GT, I wouldn't look too hard at the 256MB ones. The 384MB 8800GS or 9600GSO isn't too bad, and can be priced dirt cheap ($50 AR shipped in USA). There were some games at 1280x1024 with fsaa that the 256MB 8800GT (one step above 9600GT but slightly lower clocked than 512MB version) just tanked in performance, so it's not always just high res.

  2. There is no 256mb 9600gso. They're available in either 384 or 768mb versions.

    384mb 9600gso performs slightly lower than 512mb 9600gt.

  3. i have the 768mb version and it runs crysis on all high at 1280x800 at 35-40 fps
  4. Now day you really need at least 512 for the games they are putting out. IMHO
  5. Bad thing about the 768 mb versions, a lot of those now are ddr2 cards, not as good of a memory as the ddr3 cards.
  6. if you're going to get a GSO may as well get a 4670 instead. pay the bit more for the 9600GT though imo, money well spent.
