To test 3DMark Vantage out, I will run the test setup through each preset to generate a score for comparison. Per our normal testing, all settings will be left at factory defaults to minimize the variables. Driver version 174.74 was used throughout the testing.

Comparison Video Card:
As expected, the 9800GTX finished ahead of the 8800GT, but not by much. The margin between the three cards is not that large and came as a surprise. The 8800GT and 9600GT are both factory overclocked cards and that could have had an impact, but the cards and scores are the end result of the testing, surprising as it may be.
