  1. First off, I'd like to say hi to everyone as this is my first post on this forum. I have come here with a problem. I recently bought a 9600GT 512MB after my 7950GT 512MB burnt out. I sent the 7950GT back to eVGA for an RMA. Today, I received the card back from eVGA, but it wasn't a new 7950GT, it was a 8800GTS 640MB! Do I return my 9600GT for a full refund and install this 8800GTS, or do I leave my 9600GT in my computer and sell the 8800GTS on ebay? Please Help.

    They gave you an 8800GTS to replace the 7950GT? -That's quite the trade off if you ask me! I would definitely keep the 8800 and return the 9600GT. The 8800 has more vRAM than the 9600 and will give better performance. Hell, I kinda wanna see if I can get XFX to fork over an 8800 for my 7950GT lol.
