    I can't bring myself to call a card that costs $180+ USD a "budget card," for some reason.

    Thats just the startup price, I can see these going for $100 - $140 within a few weeks when production is in full swing.

    yep it is a buget card. it is better than the 8600gt but not the 8800gt which is about 20 bucks more. i would go with the 8800 gt for that price. way better card.

    if you need to save the 20 bucks then the 9600 is good. we will have to wait and see what happens to the price a few months from now. right now no i don't consider this a good buy at this time. not 20 bucks below the 8800 gt.

    I still refuse to call it a budget card, at least until it drops below say, $150; but c'est la vie. One good thing has come of it for me though. The drivers Nvidia put out with it (174.16) only install if you have a 9600GT, but with a modded .inf file I found here, they work fine with my 7800GT. Not only fine, but DVD playback (Purevideo) has better color reproduction (it's always been somewhat washed out), even though the newer options don't seem to be available in the Nvidia Control Panel.
