Ive been out of the video card loop for a bit, and just recently started thinking about building a mid range gaming pc.

Only have about $120 for a half way decent card, mainly play at 1280x 768 resolution. Came across the 9600GS, from which I hear is just a redone 8800 series.
So im kinda asking for some opinions as to which one i should pick up.. Can get the 3850 for 120, or the 9600GSO for 109.

Which one would be the better deal? ANy help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If you shop around, spend $10 and get a 9600GT for $130. They pop up at that price occasionally.

Of course, the best "bang" for your buck would be spend $50 more and get a 4850.... You can up your resolution to 1600x1200 with a 9600GT though, so maybe that is your sweet spot.
