Guys i am Upgrading a P4 rig. I will put a E6320 for overclock with Cooler Master TX3 Evo. The mobo will be 4core1600twins-p35 and the ram would be 4GB. Is it a good idea to put 2 of this 9600GT 1GB cards on Sli?

The main problem was the lack of DX11 and the heat output. Everything else was good.

Why was it lowered to 4? Some of it still isn't even known, I have this card and can run almost all of modern games on low-med. I can even run battlefield 4 low-med 30+ frames.

It was lowered due to the newest additions from the Nvidia 900 series. Mine dropped a rank too. It happens. :)

It's a shame that they compare it to newer cards, not the actual performance. It's a great card, had it for awhile and ran about every game I own.

What is your budget? I would recommend 7850 or GTX 650Ti Boost. Anything faster would be bottlenecked by your CPU. Though your CPU will be a bottleneck for these cards in most games.

If you really have 1000 dollars I would recommend whole new PC. cheaper H67 chipset motherboard(like this one,CPU i5-3350P( this one and 7850/7870. branded Power Supply 600W, and some cheaper case. Buying 1000 dollars graphics card would be a mistake, 1000 dollars graphics card would be grossly bottlenecked by your CPU.

I think you could get the 7870 XT if you could find one, its pretty close to a 7950 in terms of performance for a lower price.

You should buy a new PC as soon as you can, as for the upgrade you should upgrade your GFX and RAM. I would advise +2GB RAM,HD 7750, and OC your CPU to 3.2GHz to avoid bottlenecks.

At stock, they're comparable performance-wise. Getting an older GPU isn't really an upgrade, considering 9600GT supports up to DX10 and heats more.
