Sorry, your 2nd link doesn't work, but if you meant this PNY one click here - then yes, it is the same.

"I know i only asked which one but could you tell me y please" - I did tell you, didn't I? Will do so again - the 2nd one is better of the two. G

Well, basically speaking, the specs are better, which in turn makes for a 'faster' card.

In this instance, even though the 9600GT has double the memory, the 9800GT is still a 'faster' performing card overall. Benchmark comparison based on fps at 1280x1024 click here[2074]=on&prod[2067]=on - greater is better. You can do more comparisons with other benchmarks/settings at click here.

There may not seem much difference in them - but
as they're virtually the same price, the 9800GT is the better choice in terms of raw performance.

Any particular reason you'll be getting one of these cards? I suppose the answer is quite obvious, but if you're NOT a 'gamer' (&/or you don't have a particularly good spec), you could save a lot by getting something more basic. G

Hmm, those are games I haven't tried yet - Half Life is another.

Good on her! So I guess you're keeping you're gift to her until Xmas day too?

Thanks, some feedback about the card will be appreciated. Need to upgrade mine at some point too.

Ahem! I was the only one who responded ;-). G

P.S. Sorry, I forgot to ask about your PC spec - i.e. whether the graphics card would be suitable, compatible, etc. Let us know if you have any doubts/questions about this.
