Just sold my 9600GT and bought uberfast 8400GS :-) Now I am getting blazing 26.8 Mhash/sec on GPU :-D

well, it is just inefficient to have 2 fast & expensive cards.
So I bought lowest-end nVidia card which still able to run CUDA applications, so that I can work on GPGPU projects. Also, it it does not require external power, have tiny radiator, so it is much easier to swap cards.
AMD 4870 is way faster then 9600GT anyway :-)

I will buy a cheap card for programming CUDA applications, i'm thinking in buy 8600GT 512MB or 8600GTS 256MB.

Features:

8600GT 512MB
GPU: G84
Core Clock: 540 MHz
Shader Clock: 1180 MHz
Memory Clock: 700 MHz (1400 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth: 22.4 GB/sec
FLOPS: 113.28 GFLOPS

Pixel Fill Rate: 4320 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate: 8640 MTexels/sec
Framebuffer: 128,256,512,1024 MB
Memory Type: GDDR3
Memory Bus Type: 64x2 (128 bit)
Process: 80 nm
Shader Processors: 32
Pipeline Layout: Scalar MADD+MUL
Texture Units: 16
Raster Operators 8


8600GTS 256MB
GPU: G84
Core Clock: 675 MHz
Shader Clock: 1450 MHz
Memory Clock: 1000 MHz (2000 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth: 32 GB/sec
FLOPS: 139.2 GFLOPS

Pixel Fill Rate: 5400 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate: 10800 MTexels/sec
Framebuffer: 256,512 MB
Memory Type: GDDR3
Memory Bus Type: 64x2 (128 bit)
Process: 80 nm
Shader Processors: 32
Pipeline Layout: Scalar MADD+MUL
Texture Units: 16
Raster Operators 8

Which video card you think is better for BarsWF and general CUDA programming? Is the memory space important?

I vote for GTS. Memory is not a problem for bruteforce :-)

Bah.

I'm putting together a box with a quad core AMD Phenom, 8800GTX, GTX260 (216 SP edition), and soon a 9800GX2.
