  1. I currently have a nvidia geforce 8600 gts, now that one's burnt out. I have a 9600 or 9500 "not sure" gt on the way. I would just like some advice as to any better or worse differences i might notice. I bought the 8600 quite a few years ago. Is the 9500/9600 gt better?

    both 9500 and 9600GT are pretty close in comparison to the 8600GTS. the 9xxx series is of course newer and the 9600GT is faster. 9500GT isn't really a gaming card, but will work fine for games and movies. 9600 is a better gaming card and ships with 512MB to 1GB vRAM.
