Yup, the 8800GT will play anything you can throw at it.

The 9600GSO is really nothing more than a renamed 8800GS. The 8800GT outperforms it in most tests.

If you're looking to save a few bucks, get the 9600GSO. Otherwise, the 8800GT would be your best bet performance wise. The 3870 is the last one to get as it's easily beaten by both the 8800 and 9600.

slight oc of the gso gets way better performance than that card.

Slight OC of the GT beats the pants off a card that has less streaming processors and less memory bandwidth.

We have a system with a stock 8800GT that plays Crysis on max settings @1280x1024.
