The 8600GT (256MB) I have had for a while.
Just picked up the 9500GT (1Gig).
Guess what..the 8600GT was better.
Also got a higher rating on Vista (if that matters).
Probably due to ddr3 memory.
Both cards are pretty decent, I would have thought the 9500 would have ddr3.

that's where doing research ahead of time comes in handy. you can't always go by the numbering systems. a lesson learned i would say.

It's true, as a kid I was taught that 2 comes after 1.
Another thing I read was that some cards are unable to use all the memory on them. Thus looking at the memory can be deceiving.
I do like the geforce cards.
