Not sure about that but you can easily overclock it. My MSI Brand 6600gt overclocks aewsome and stays cool with stock cooling.

ok its not...its $10 cheaper haha

but your forgeting that prices are diffrent all over the world

and here in Perth Australia..these two cards are similar prices :)

Well they are dumb to price the 9600XT the same as the 6600GT because obviously the 6600GT runs circles around it.

Riceball 10-25-2005 09:23 PM

Yeah the 6600GT KILLS the 9600XT!!

gaara 10-25-2005 09:37 PM

The 9600XT is priced so expensively because of supply and demand...since there is little demand for such a card it becomes harder to maintain a profit therefore they increase the price...it is a hassle for ATI to maintain older fabs to produce older cards so the price gets jacked up

No different than any other hardware...just look at slower performing DDR vs PC3200
