8800GT vs. 9600gt vs 9800gt

hey guys, I know that this is probably some an old question but I have a Nvidia Geforce 8800GT that came with my HP computer. Doesnt know what brand it is but how does it compare to the 9600 GT and 9800Gt? Sounds like the Geforce 8800GT is slower than the other two since the model # is lower right?

my system specs:
Intel Quadcore 9300 2.5ghz
ddr2 800mhz 4gb
Nvidia Geforce 8800gt

I dont know why when I download 3dmark vantage the trial version and run it the FPS is really low. I get about 9-20FPS on 1280X1024 setting. Does that sound right or my video card just really suck? And I believe I download the lastest drivers from nvidia. I believe I have a descent cpu?

Nope. The 8800GT is identical to the 9800GT, and faster than the 9600GT. As for 3dmark vantage? It tends to run slow, no matter the system. What was the score?

model # really doesnt mean anything. even less these days. If you went by that rule, a 8800 ULTRA would be slower than a 9400GT. :lol:

thnx for the reply guys,

heres my score,

3DMark Score P6633 3DMarks
CPU Score 27883
Graphics Score 5289

the cpu score is pretty good but the score on the video card is bad. Is that consider slow? Or is something wrong?

i'm curious, is that hp 8800Gt card performing like a hombuild 8800gt? i know they've made the 9600GS (no gso) by themselfs, and the driversuport for that card is BAD! no nvidia suport.

is it the same with that 8800GT? a hp- pre build card?

I dont know if they perform the same or not but my Driver Version, is that the lastest driver version??

^probably lower binned 8800GT's from nvidia, and underclocked... pure speculation though.

can you update the driver from nvidia site, or only from hp? maybe my question can be answered this way.

I just want to know if my scores for 3dmark Vantage is right? And the video card score is pretty slow.
3DMark Score P6633 3DMarks
CPU Score 27883
Graphics Score 5289

does this seem normal?

people can give their scores, but if you don't know the brand and specs from your card, that doesn't say anything to you!

Download GPU-Z here: After downloading, run it, in the top right, just below the close button, you'll find a camera icon. Click it , save the image, upload it.

And there is pretty much no difference between a 8800GT and a 9800GT, and they're both better than the 9600GT. Google Riva Tuner, download, and OC your GPU. Enjoy!
