Yeah, but I fell in love with that red MSI 9600gt...

What about PALiT NE/960TSX0202 GeForce 9600GT SONIC 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card?
It's 1GB vid card for the same price. Is there some big negative to this card?
(I guess it's a little more expensive, but not as much as I'd expect for 1gig)

the 1gb is useless and is capped by the 256bit interface, in most games it performs worse than the 512mb at lower resolutions

Haha, I liked that MSI card but I was being dramatic. This card from PALiT performs really well the reviews say. I'll end up buying this one I guess.
It looks kinda cheesy, but I'll get over it...


I had a job for 1 week, working at a golf tournament, and I made over $1k. The thing is, they don't ship the checks out until this week. I might not be able to purchase the parts before all those rebates end on the 30th.

Does NewEgg have rebates on different items every month? Or is this a one-time/annual deal, with all these rebated items?

Also, will the 550w PSU be enough to overclock with? Or should I buy a 650w PSU?

Is there a negative to buying an "open box" product from NewEgg? I see it's a lot cheaper. I could buy a 8800GT for the price of a 9600GT...
