Unless you have something against AA, try the XFX 9600GT. They are over at Newegg for 149usd with rebate. Skip the AMD garbage.

Hmm, AMD had messed up AA and AF performance big time with this series, but here we had the cards tested with AA wherever possible and AMD still managed to hold it's own. (Besides, these are sub $200 cards, so end users will soon find themselves using AA 4X a bit less often, and if it's more or less a draw with AA...)

What a meaningless review. How many of the resolutions were playable? Why waste the time with a review when all cards are performing under 30 fps?

How can anybody play games with average frame rate below 90 fps, when vsync is disabled? I play games with such settings, when graphics card can almost always render 60 fps, when vsync is enabled.

Why is the GeForce 8800GS never included in these comparisons?

It's probably because 8800GS is likely to be discontinued (if it's still in production anyway), being not that cheap to manufacture (since it's based on the G92 chip), and with it's performance comparable to that of 3850 256MB. There is a comparison of a factory overclocked 8800GS 384MB and a Radeon HD 3850 256MB here:

Well it's better than the 3850 256Mb. Unfortunately the XFX version doesn't overclock well because they use crappy memory, if you get the EVGA/Asus version most cards can overclock their memory to around 2GHz (1GHz DDR) which helps a lot since the memory bandwidth is pretty low for the 8800GS.

Unfortunately I have yet to see a review with a non-XFX overclocked benchmark for the 8800GS.

Looking at this the 9600 gt 512mb gs is a bit worse than the 8800 gt only buy 2 fps that not bad
