I traded my 9600GT + $10 cash for my friend's 8800GT, and I really couldn't be happier:
I'm now getting about 4900-5200 PPD on 353pt WUs, which are taking about 1hr40mns per WU versus 2hr30mns on the 9600GT. This is all at stock, it already reaches 80C load at ~50% fan speed, so overclocking is not an option until I get an aftermarket cooler. The only other problem is the card squeals, is there any way to fix this?
Count me in for an additional ~1.5K PPD vs the Canucks
