    which card is faster, I've had my trusty 8800 GTS 640 since launch and its done me well, I bought this Albertron 9600 GT for a second build. but then i got to thinking.....

    Should I put the 9600 GT in my system, But would it be faster then my 8800 GTS 640.

    so yea which is faster??

    Between those two, stick with the GTS.

    I hate to say it but why dont you bench both cards in your system and draw your own conclusions seeing as you have both to hand ... would be interesting if you would post your results too :)
    P.s. i'm really pleased with the performance of my 96 btw and they do clock very nicely :)

    If it was 8800 GTS 640MB vs. 9800 GTX then get the GTX :p

    running my system with just the single 9600GT showed a minor improvement over my older 8800GTS 640mb, when overclocked the gap was quite noticeable in most games. but thats just me.

    Thats what i have found, at stock clocks the 9600GT is slighty faster(not much mind you) but the 9600GT overclocks to levels that the GTS cant touch.

    my 8800 gts 640 is clocked at 684 core 1620 shader and 1026 on the mem. that to me is a good overclock. i have also gone as high as 702 core but stopped. i had no issues.

    stock for stock they are right on par with each other, but if you overclock the gts to my level it would be faster.

    to be honest mate i've got both, and at stock I agree they are very similar in terms of performance an equally heavily clocked 9600GT would wipe the floor with the GTS 640. I've had to sell my 640 to pay a bloody phone bill which has upset me alittle because its been a great card for me I've had it for 15 months now.

    ^^provided he has proper cooling and stuff!
    IMO, 9600GT 512MB DDR3 is better than older 8800GTS 640MB(G80)!

    The old gts 640 once overclocked will reach 650-700 and will be the faster card against an overclocked 9600gt.

    yeah, ive heard the ol GTS G80 overclocks pretty well(XFX 8800GTS Fatal1ty anyone?), but it compared to the 9600GT,looks like it consumes much more power and theoretically generate more heat.

    So it would be wise to replace my 8800 GTS 640 MB with my 9600 GT then?

    performance wise, id rather get a 8800GT or 8800GTS 512MB from the GTS 640, since i dont think you wont feel much that difference with the 9600GT.

    What resolution are you playing at for starters?? At a resolution such as 1680x1050 with 4AA and 16AF on CoD4,I'd expect the 8800GTS 640mb to easily come out on top...whereas at a lower resolution with the same AA and AF I'd imagine the 9600gt would just edge out in front.

    But I can't see the performance difference, if any, being great enough to notice it. Try clocking your GTS to one of my GTS's speeds and then we'll see which card comes out on top ;)

    Actually, I'd say stick with the 8800GTS. There's something it seems everybody is failing to realize. Your 8800GTS is a Gainward Bliss. I have a feeling you have a bit of raw untapped overclocking power with it. Justa hunch.

    If it were me, I'd probably throw an RHS88 and VF1000 on it and see what it can do.

    If I were you since you already own both cards I would test them both in my main machine and see which one I prefer. Performance should be about equal before overclocking. But then there is power consumption, heat and noise to think about as well.

    i have a gainward bliss 8800gts 640mb. It oc to 675 core/1674 shader/2000mem on stoc cooling. It's like a stoc gtx in performance, sometimes better. I will not give my gts640 over 8800gt, not to mention 9600gt

    The 9600GT is definitely a bit better, but not enough to justify an upgrade, and unless you are at VERY high resolutions the 9600GT has VERY good aa performance so unless your at like 1920x1200 the 9600gt would probably still outperform the 640mb.

    And even oc'd, my 9600GT can easily get to 750/1920/1060 fine with not much temp increase. Stock cooling and a stock EVGA 9600GT (No factory OC)
