  • 9600XT "Ultimate Edition" 128MB

    I'm looking at this card: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-342&depa=1

    Who here uses the 9600xt? Is it a good card? My GF3 TI-200 works perfectly even on modern games i've tried. I'm thinking of upgrading my card and selling it to a neighbor who might need it. I'm curious how long this card would last as a card to use? I've had my TI-200 for about 3-4 years and it's still lasting me today. I'm also looking for dual outputs for dual monitors so it interests me. Is it worth the price? My TI-200 cost me $120 then, and the TI-200 that was bought for a friend was $90 last year.

    It looks like it comes with a free HL2 coupon which is worth $50 and i'm planning to sell mine for around $60.

    Besides the 'ultimate' being grabbed out of the air, it is a nice card. Oh, and besides them asking quite some money for it. The clock speeds are lower then the XT in my country and there doesn't seem to be a video in. I really don't understand why sapphire is tagging it ultimate. I just noticed there isn't a tv tuner either. This is a ultimate barebone

    ASUS Radeon 9600XT /TVD, 128 MB (tv out / video in) with the same clockspeeds for the same price and better cooling (less noice too).

    I think it might be worth to browse around a bit more.

    But besides that: The 9600 XT is a great card.

      In my eyes it would cost only $70. $60 for my current card and $50 HL game = $70. I could buy it else ware. I'm not looking for the top-of-the-line just an upgrade as i'm not in a pissing contest with others. I would buy their 'lower' edition as it is $20 cheaper, but it does not come 'retail' or with a HL2 coupon.

      I'm not looking for an AIW card as I have a TV tuner already (Winfast TV200 XP Deluxe). Right now i'm not intending to buy today, tomorrow or in the next week. Just setting a baseline for something i'm interested in.

          I don't know anything about HL2 and I don't really care. It's a bonus to me. HL2 is coming in flavors? Where did you read that as i'm curious.

            Just a bit of warning IDN that newegg isn't the cheapeset place to shop anymore. I found a few local places in my area that is cheaper than newegg in many things

              Yes, NewEgg is losing value IMO as they do not carry most older (Less then 6 months and less popular) items. It's really a baseline to fine products as they have good information and images. I plan to do a search for a good price from a good store when I come to a decision to buy.

              I still do enjoy NewEgg for their customer services, their pricing, their quality of service and shipping and would shop there any day without a hitch. It's nice to order from them for more money when you are planning to buy a load of things and not from separate dealers.

                  You do not need to get an attitude problem. I have not followed the HL2 status and you could of lead me in the right direction instead of being sarcastic and rude.
