Default Re: Why is this graphics card cheaper?

the 8800GT is more expensive, but it's chipset, GPU and mem clock are less. I quickly listed the items to give you specs from ebay. if you copy & paste links it will take you specs and prices. I know ebay will have people giving different buy it no prices, but i've seen it on retail shops online, so im confused to which is better, seeing as it appears that the same shop will sell both these cards but the 8800gt for more

Thanks

The 8800GT has 112 stream processors, 54 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The 9500GT has 32 stream processors, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs.

The 8800GT also has a 256bit memory interface compared to the 9500GT's 128 bit interface.

Obviously, the 8800GT is far faster.

The 9500GT is basically half a 9600GT.

The 9800GT is a rebranded 8800GT I think
