Im thinking about puchasing a Sapphire 9600 (non PRO, non XT)
Newegg carries retail and bulk (for about 3 dollars less) versions of the Sapphire 9600, but theres a 128 one and a 256 one.
128=Samsung (4-5?ms) memory
256=Elixir (4-5?ms) memory
Since i assume the memory for each is rated at the same, is there any advantage to buying the 128, since it has Samsung memory ( Thumbs up ) or is the 256's memory just fine? maybe even good memory.?? How much of a performance increase will i get with the 256? i assume not much. Ive heard having more memory will help your card play some of the latest games that havent come out yet (like Doom, HL2 etc)... is this true?
I plan to overclock the card, and im trying to get it from 325/400 to about 400/400+ , (ive heard people being able to do this easily, but which memory would take the OC better?)
My birthday is on the 12th (monday) and my parents said for my Bday they would pay for about half of the card so i can actually afford it...
Anyways, any information would be greatly
What does newegg mean by, "Refurbished"??
Do they actually mean refurbished, as in a broken card that has been fixed, or are they returns that "seemed" to work properly...
Anyone ever bought a refurbished card from N.Egg? Details!
