    Evidentally I'm some sort of retard. :roll:

    I apologise, but again, if you look at it your way, I should vote for the 9600gt, since it's newer, but the way I see it, the 3870 was "higher end" when it was released in comparison to the 9600gt, since the nVidia card was never targeted at high end on release.
    Plus, I actually got the 3870 AFTER the 9600gt, BUT, by your reckoning, the 9600gt should get the vote simply because it's a younger card.

    So you see, it's not actually that simple, which is why I listed both.

    I voted 3870.

    What's the actual point of all these polls anyway?

    (Oh, and apologies Skyrig, please ignore me if you think I'm being retarded again :roll: )

    I think we need checkboxes and to be asked "which cards are in your life?"

    Yep -- how about a new thread, where everyone would write about his personal "upgrade history", without a poll this time. ;)

    I didn't call you a retard, but if you wish to portray yourself as such then go ahead. I still fail to see how the question is so hard for you. Since the 9600GT is both of equal power and newer it's the logical answer, now say if you had purchased a 9500GT and then later got a 3870 I would have went with the 3870 since it's more powerful. So no, it's not simply because it's the younger card but because the 9600GT is younger AND equally as fast.

    Now for the point of the thread, not being the OP I can only guess but it's probably something along the lines of the OP wanting data for person knowledge or use. I may be reaching on this one but it just seems logical...

    You probably voted for the first option: Both HD4800 series and GF200 series :wink: Even GTX260 is faster then HD4850. That option is fits more for the people who have both HD4870 and GTX260.

    I did as it best suited me given what I listed.





    Why? Looking to upgrade? It takes me time to move things around and right now, only 1 9600GT and both 8600GTs aren't being used. I should note, the friend who got the 7900GS was also given the whole X2 3800+ setup as well which included 2GB of DDR500 ram, Asus A8N-E SLI Mobo, TT Big Typhoon HSF, the X2 which would do 2.5ghz stable and the card. Long time family friend and both me and my brother at the time were running 2x BFG 8800GTS 640s with C2D while he had a lowly P4HT 3.0 with an AGP 6800GT(Mine on the list earlier, got it back though)

    640MB 8800GTS, when I feel my wallet is getting to fat I want to get either a second GTS for sli or a 4850. II havent really seen any benchmarks comparing them, though I'm guessing SLI GTS will be a a good deal faster when SLI scales properly.

    Not quite. It has slightly higher clockspeeds.

    Yeah, I know, not much of a difference, but there is one...

    Also, isn't the 8800GT over 15% faster than the GTS 640 most of the time?
