    i`ve shortlisted 9600gt and 9800 gt..
    does the perfomance really differs?
    and with my psu of only 430W, is it stable to use these cards?

    Couple of questions
    whats games are you playing?
    do you overclock your cpu?
    how much are you wanting to spend?
    What PSU do you have?

    just note that the 8800GTS 512 is better then the 9800GT.(8800GTS 512 is the same as 9800GTX)

    ok, here is what I would do go on ebay and get two msi 9600gt and run them sli
    the price is $149 for 2 of them $75 each they will use less power then any other two cards in SLI plus they will beat a 9800GTX I score 16200 in 3dmark 06 with my setup. The 9600GT is the best bang for the buck hands down

    my PSU is 430W of an unknown brand..
    I play games such as FPS and those ports from xbox 360
    my budget is about 120 dollars but i can get cheaper bcoz theres a lot of 2nd hand graphic card in japan.

    one more thing i need to know, which is better 8800 gts 320 or 8800gt 512?

    ^
    G92 8800GTS 512MB is better

    FYI, that card requires 28 ~ 30 Amps on +12V rails, just make sure your PSU has enough amount of Amps
