    Not worth it, if you really want a better card then get a 9800 gtx, dropped to Just over a hundred pound at scan now.

    In all honesty mate you'll see a difference but not worth the trouble unless you can get rid of the gts 320 and not lose much, otherwise sell the gts and add the £50 to get a 9800 gtx.

    I'd still spend the extra, for an 9800GTX, as Protocol_48 mentioned, just over £100 now (£117 Leadtek) I was tempted to go for one myself, but might wait a few more months 'till more prices drop.

    With the 8800GTS vs 9600GT, as proven with review results, the guru3d vga charts etc, the 9600GT is a faster card, and can clock much better than the GTS.

    9600GT cheapest i've seen is £70, i'd go for it if i had to choose between a £50/60 GTS.

    Its insane what you can get for £50/60 in terms of computing these days!

    I have 8800gts 640mb (A3 revision) it clocks to 675/1674 core/shaders on stoc cooler.
    And its almost as 8800gtx stoc.
    even 8800gt clocked to 700'ish mhz core dont beat my card in high rezolutions.
    so i realy dont think that 9600gt its better than my card..even that it clocks to 1900mhz shaders it has only 64...i have 96 at 1674 plus bus width 320biti plus 20 rops.
    Except crysis i play every game at 1600*1200 with 4x aa, 16af..
    So if you have a big monitor and want to play at higher rezolutions with aa enabled i dont recomend 9600gt.
    besides you can buy ati 4850 very cheap and its way better than these cards specialy if you like aa

    Hi its the thread starter here, man was i surprised to see my old thread appear again.

    i stuck with my 8800 GTS 640 and i'm now considering a Geforce GTX 260 as my upgrade.

    You will not see much improvemant until you get your processor to 3ghz+, once you have then it's worth it, for the same price you could also get a radeon HD 4870, also a great card.

    What are you talking about? 8800 GTS 640 MB is only listed in 3DMark06 Benches but no Benchmarks in-game, it's a pity, I would really like to see the difference.

    no complaints on my 8800 gts. have them clocked to gtx ultra speeds with no issues. but if i was upgrading vcards, i would not go with 9600gt. if anything hold on to that GTS till you can get more $$$ flow and buy a nicer card.

    okay, why don't two guys with similarly clocked cpu's and 8800GTS 640MB and 9600GT 512MB cards do a run of 06 each?

    See which scores more :)

    Actually games like Crysis Warhead (which has higher detailed textures than original Crysis) can benefit from 8800 GTS 640 MB due to it has more graphics Memory. I can run Crysis on highest but not Warhead, it stutters in some levels (such as the "hovercraft level" or "many trucks level" or "train level") but if I lower Objects detail to Mainstream i.e. Lower Texture detail so it consumes less graphics RAM and the rest set to Enthusiast (the highest) it runs well. So maybee your 8800 GTS 640 MB is better for Crysis Warhead than my 8800 GTS 512. I don't think there is a comparision test but you can run it and tell me :) Of my 2 GB ordinary RAM it utilizes 1,8 GB so it doesn't seem to be the problem and the CPU doesn't take a very big role in the Crysis games, the 2 Cores are running at about ~80% anyway. If you haven't tried Warhead it's worth a try, it's a great game with great physics and adrenaline pumping even though it's not very hard, finished it on Delta difficulty :p I'm a little bit offtopic but my point is - 640 vs 512 Graphics RAM and higher Memory bandwidth is the old 8800 GTS 640 MB biggest advantages :p

    agreed, keep the 8800GTS and save your money to get a better card than the 9600gt, a GTX 260 896MB would be a far better upgrade

    Wow. Way to revive a 4 month old thread guys. ;-) And that's just from the last post. 7 months from the time it was started.

    I am guilty for reviving it, and also, it was with my first post@Guru 3D :D
    I was curious 'cause I first had a 8800 GTS 640 MB but it was RMA'd and I got a 8800 GTS 512 instead. What do you think about my Crysis Warhead theory, more Graphic RAM than 512 is an advantage for running highres textures in the game (in some levels). If that's the case it will naturally have an advantage over 9600 GT (512 MB version) as well.
