The most expensive one so you can increase your E-penis.

And so you can run Lineage, WoW, and whatever other abomination you can find.

9600. bigger number means newer card.


newer card does not mean faster or better tho

Why the hell would a company release a newer card, with a higher model number, if it was worse than previous ones.

9600 is GeForce series 9
8800 is GeForce series 8.

9>8.

There ya go.

If you want just google it, im sure you can find comparisons, or at least specific details on the different cards then decide for yourself.

8800gt 512mb is better than 9600gt 512mb. and the 8800 is cheaper. go for the 8800gt, i have an 8800gt.

My lord. The reason Nvidia released a 9600 was to offer a budget 9 series card. the 8800 is a HIGH END 8 series card. The 8800 is better than the 9600. End of.

In about a month they're releasing a new line of cards. G200 series. I think they will run of 45nm instead of the 60 something nm they ran on their previous cards.

But, to answer your question. Get the 8800GT.
