Why would I want one of these if I already have an 8800GT?

Seems to me this card isn't as good? 64 stream processors compared to the 8800GT's 112.

Is there something else I am not seeing?

The price difference? And who is telling you to trade in your 8800gt for it?

Nobody, I am just curious about the differences of the card and if this is something I should think about upgrading to, but it doesn't seem like that is the case.

What do these even offer? It doesn't look like they even have DX10.1.

They are in different segments of the market. The 8800gt is suppose to be mid-high end while the 9600gt is suppose to mid range. It wont be an upgrade.

Saw a review on this one yesterday... wow. What $200 gets you today (AMD or Nvidia) is very nice!

Competition rox!

9600GT = slower than 8800GT

But WAY faster than mid tier in the 8xxx family.

Still overpriced pretty badly IMO. This is a ~100 dollar segment card. Just gouged because its new.

It is worth about $150 to me. It's about the same speed as $170 video cards.

At $180 (+ tax at newegg) I can get an 8800GT elsewhere for about the same price w/o sales tax.

I think its an upgrade to the 8600 GT ;) thats not a 9800 :rolleyes:

I think I will stick with my dual 7900GS cards for now.
