9600 review on the first day? Grats OCC Review team! :)

Looks like a solid performer. When you figure in the price drops from AMD, it looks like there's some very good competition in the midrange again.

Yes, it seems to compete with the 3870 pretty well in most instances and considering the price that is quite impressive.
It does make me wonder what the higher end 9 series cards will bring (and whether they will put my 8800GT to shame :lol: )

ccoke, do you have a comparison shot for the size of this thing? Like compared to an 8800GT or whatever you have around you, that'd be interesting for me :)

:withstupid: Hard to tell the size when there's no comparison shot, nor even a pic of it installed in a case. With today's cards, size actually matters to people.

:blink: Why is the 3870 slower than the 3850 in the Crysis tests? On other tests it seems like the 3850 chokes rather quickly as well. Oddness.

The 9600 looks pretty good though. :)

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Well I have my BFG 9600GT OC. GOOD GOSH THIS THIS THING IS LONG! Please do not quote this.

It's not peer pressure, It's just your turn

There's no such thing as a dirty mind, it's just a sense of humor with adult content.....

Nobody wins. One just looses slower than the other.
