Arrow PowerColor!!!

I'd go with the PowerColor for 4 reasons.

1. I have a buddy that only uses this brand (ATi PowerColor) & has ALWAYS loved them & has never had problems with them!

2. Much better heatsink!!!

3. Higher default clocks & should overclock even higher using ATiTool.

4. I've used both ATi & Nvidia & both are very good graphics cards!

This is My Opinion of course...You can make up your own mind by reading this artical at Xbit Labs.
They compair the 9600GT directly against the 3850 ATi card...

thnx fir the input

my gut was telling me to go with the 3850 but its just the reviews that i've been reading which generally say the 9600gt outperforms the 3850 a little.

good review, i think maybe i'll stick with the 9600gt. In that review it beats the 3850 by a considerable amount on nearly every game.

Pay an extra £20/30, and get a 4850, mate.

if it was an extra £20-30 i would have got the 4850 but its almost twice the price of a 9600gt. 9600GT in SLI outperforms 4850.

Charts, benchmarks Gaming Graphics Charts Q3/2008, 3DMark06 v1.1.0 3DMark Score[2066]=on&prod[2116]=on

i already have one 9600gt might get a second later on in the year.
