i think about $110USD. too lazy to find a currency thing. at any rate, that's too much. the 9600SE is a straight poor performer. you'd be better off getting a 5200ultra, which is still poor. even a 9200 is better.
get a gf4 ti4200, fx5600 or regular 9600 (not se).
well I think I would go with the 128MB version with the games...it comes from a better known brand (gigabyte) and is only 7 cdn dollars more...If I were choosing I would get the 128meg version cause I really don't think that the 256 is useful yet...waiting on Sazar to chime in he knows all about cards
thanks Tuffgong...i just found this one as well, from sapphire which is less expensive, but still xt. is there an actual noticeable difference between these cards? (i dont mind the games...i wanna play silent hill 3 )
the sapphire looks good but you are not getting any of the extra cables with it since it is oem. you are saving some money though...I don'tknow I'm kind of stumped on this one betweem the Gigabyte and the sapphire let me have a little more time to look at them both
ok well I have to say that if I had a choice I would go with the Sapphire because when I think of how much I actually use those cables and things in my card I really wouldn't need them...also I think the money you are saving is worth not getting those cables or games...I would go sapphire
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
