Make sure you shop around online as you can find some great deals on them after rebate especially.

Newegg.com - ZOGIS ZO96GT-E GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics
Like that one.

Thats a pretty good deal.

I was looking to buy this tomorow from the shop they got here I can pick it up tomorow.

eVGA GeForce 9600GT Superclocked 512M TV-Out/2DVI

$189
Brand: eVGA
Model:512-P3-N862-AR
512MB DDR3 256bit memory interface
HDTV support
PCI-Express 2.0
2 DVI

DirectX 10 support with Shader Model 4.0

Would it be worth 189$? Because I really hate to wait for shipping.


The one on Newegg is Core clock 650MHz and this one is 675mhz. I am not so good at all this so I wouldn't know but I know that higher Mhz the better right lol?

I would consider buying from, newegg and saving some cash but if you must have it tomorrow, that isn't a terrible price to pay.

Even with rush delivery you probably would get that cheaper 9600 gt for less then $189...

But ya, if you want to be impatient and get it right away then go ahead.

A 7900GT owns every game but Crysis.. and I can play Crysis all settings on high and actually beat the game like that, lol.. it really is playable and looks awesome but the FPS isnt good in intense situations.

A 9600GT will totally own any game for sure. (But Crysis)

I just picked up the 9600 GT and I am having problems with it...

In middle of the game sometimes it just makes my screen go black, makes the monitor go yellow. And my whole comp freezes.

Anyone got any ideas?

Hmmm...

Download and run a program called rivatuner.

Use it to adjust the fan speed so that it runs higher than normal.

Just google Adjust fan speed rivatuner for a how-to guide on how exactly to do it.

If that doesn't solve your problems, your power supply may be bad or your card may unfortunately be doa.
