Here's another question from me :) 
Would 2 of these EVGA 9600GT's run faster in SLI than two of these 8800GT's in SLI?

More about : 9600gt sli 8800gt sli

PS I don't know why those 's are there, and I can't edit the message.

No.

Just because it has a higher number does not equal higer performance

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/geforce_9600_gt_sli_performance/default.asp (link with 9600gt vs 8800gt SLI Benchmarks from Firingsquad)

"GeForce 9600 GT is NVIDIA’s G94 GPU. G94 is built on TSMC’s 65-nm manufacturing process and contains 64 stream processors – a little over half the amount of shaders found in the GeForce 8800 GT. "

Even though it is Clocked faster then a 8800gt they took out 1/2 of the shader and it in essence cripples the card when put against a 8800gt

8800GT = 9800GT which is faster than 9600GT :) 

nVidia didn't do their customers any favors this year with their naming scheme on the "9 series" cards.

i never said that "because it has a higher number it euals higher performce". i asked you which one was better when run in sli.
i may not have posted very much, but that does not mean that i'm a "noob".
thanks anyway for your help.

Oh god the naming for te 8800's are hell. I ddin't know what was what really when I was trying to build my computer 6months ago, and it's hard to explain to people I know who want to upgrade their graphics card that the G80 8800ultra,GTX,GTS are old while the 8800gt,gts,gs are new. And that the 9800gt is the same as the 8800gt. And that the 9800gtx is teh same as the 8800gts (new one) but with hybrid and tri-sli support and clocked higher. And that the 9800gtx+ is an newer 9800gtx refreshed to 55nm and clocked higher. Than describe that the 9800gx2 is the newer 8800gts card in sli on a single card that was downclocked. Oh and almost forgot the 9600gso is an 8800gs thats been rebranded.

Man it's hell explaining this to someone, their stare at you with a blank look like a deer looking into headlights in the middle of the road.

yep, two 8800GT's will mostly outperform a GTX 280, two 8800GTS's will be pretty much on par with a 9800GX2, and two 9600GT's should be somewhere around the GTX 260..
