Default GeForce 9600 GT 512MB

Browsing Anitecs site this afternoon and noticed the 9600GT is out. $209.95 seems high for what I thought was going to be the competition for the 3850. Nobody else seems to have it out yet so could be a mistake. Here's the link

Anitec.ca - Chaintech GeForce 9600 GT 512MB PCI-Express 2.0.

9600GT is intended to fit between 8600GTS and 8800GT in performance and price. Price will probably be a little cheaper next week, maybe $180-190?

For that price you are better off getting one of those Galaxy 8800GT 512MB video cards since they currently can be had for under $200 when on sale.

Theres a BFG 8800GT 512MB for under $200 on sale also.

I might get one depending on the price upon widespread availability. Just have a couple 8600GT now that my 3850 is dead.
