Contemplating old GeForce 9600 GSO for cheap gaming

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is there anything in particular I should know about this XFX GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 card (other than it's loud) before I pull the trigger? See my sig. for my rig.

What kind of cheap gaming? I did some gaming on 9400GS on 1440 x 900, not very good at all compare to HD5570.

Imagine the 5 years into the future equivalent of Lego HP, and that's about the most demanding game I'd ever expect to play before the next upgrade, probably with fancy graphical improvements (like FSAA) turned off, but still at 1440x900.

Well, given its price, I'd say go for it. Just keep in mind it does not have DirectX 11.

Do you think the type of games I'm talking about in five years will require DX11 to run, or just for certain features?

Looks decent for the price, if you look around though you could probably grab a Radeon HD 4850 or so for around $50 tops

If it is Lego game you are talking about, I think you will be okay. As for DirectX 11, most games kind of skip DirectX 10 and went for 11, but they still keep DirectX 9 in that case.

Okay, I think I'll do it.

EDIT: Ah, no I won't. It sold out right under my nose. Well, I guess it was priced to sell, after all.

I really like the 8800gt 9600gt 9800gt cards. They may not be the best, but they are decent for gaming. When I had a Core 2 Duo, 2gb Ram and 9600gt it was a good set up. TF2 L4D CS:S Call of Duty 4, and Waw, all played great with no anti aliasing, I would say go for the card, but it might get a little hot. I see that it sold out before you had the chance to get one. You could defiantly get a GTS 250 for $50 second hand from OCN the card is great, I still use it biggrin.gif

Yeah, but for $50, I could look for a used card with DX11 support.
