    not a bad card assuming you dont have a 8800 GT / GTS / GTX / Ultra yet, but even though the oc is almost non existant i'm sure BFG will charge a premium for it which makes regular 9600 cards the better deal.

    I've said it before, but IMHO the 'Sea of Grey' is a great thing. It means we can all go out an buy the card we like, the card that has the right *ring* to the ears, and we'll all have good cards. The fact that for a fiver less there could be an extra two frames on your screen at this-and-that game is irrelevant if all the cards offer good value for money.

    Ofcourse, all this is provided you stay away from the GS :p

    And Tim, plz don't get me wrong, i really do greatly appreceate the benchmarks. Good review again btw, i admire your patience in endlessly testing cards with unsurprising performance. :thumb:

    What should I buy if I am living on a chinese salary (350USD$ a month) and I want it to last until starcraft 2 comes along.

    Your first impulse says...

    How would this compare to a 7600GT? It's a shame it doesn't have a black PCB...

    The 7600 GT is quite a bit slower than the 8600 GTS and X1950 Pro (see here)

    I'm working on them. :)

    I have seen prices on shops that have the 9600GT higher then the 8800GT. And thats because, and i quote a shop salesman from a known shop in the Netherlands: "The 9600GT is the folow up card ofthe 8800GT, its a lot faster!" And the current 8800GT (xfx,asus) they sell, cost around 249 euro. the 9600GT sells for 279 euro.

    I rest my case...
