a friend of me wanted to buy a graphics card, he knows some friend with older cards to be sold, as they are upgrading, he now has 8600gt and wants to upgrade to one of the following cards, 9600gt 512mb or 8800gts 640mb, both at the same price, from what i know 9600gt has a slight edge over the 8800gts, and 8800gts 320/640mb is comparable to 9600gso, i want to be sure is this correct or both 9600gt and 8800gts has the same performance, if anyone has a link of comparison please send it here ...

The reality of that was horrible when I found out, my old 8800 GTS 640 was $401 new. :cry:

I know i almost bought one used thought I had a good deal but picked up a new G92 8800GT 512mb instead for a lower price and it is still going strong almost 2 years later.

He will be better off to buy a used 8800GTS (G92, or 9800GTX) on ebay. A single 9600GT is a bit dissapointing for gaming if he has a large monitor. I have a machine with 2 in SLI, that's a different story.

I waited a few months after the release of the G92 GTS and picked one up for half the cost of the G80, they're both still getting used everyday.

The 9600GT is a little faster. How much depends on the game and settings. You can always check out the charts over on Guru3d, or even here at Toms

Though to be honest sometimes the charts here seem a little inconsistent with other data, but it's good for a general idea :D
