BFGTech GeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB
Posted by newsbot on March 12th 2008



After some careful analysis of the changes, it doesn’t appearto makemuch sense spending any more than about £120 on a GeForce 9600 GT now,because at that point the stretch to £140 isn’t too far away. BFGTech’sGeForce 9600 GT OC is currently sitting at around £115 includingdelivery (if you take advantage of Scan’s free delivery offer forregular contributors to the bit-tech community) – at that price, it’snot a bad deal but I do have some concerns.For out-and-out gamers, I have no problem recommending BFGTech’sGeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB graphics card – it delivers strong performanceat a good price point for those that cannot afford to stretch to £140for a GeForce 8800 GT. The ten year warranty is also a good peace ofmind if you’re planning to use the card as a family (or even apersonal) hand-me-down, where it makes its way into older systems asand when you upgrade your main machine. However, if you are looking to use the card in a home theatre PC, thebundle is missing both the DVI-to-HDMI converter and S/PDIF cable,which means that you won’t be able to connect the card to your HDTV andcarry audio over the HDMI cable at the same time. Of course, you canacquire the required parts elsewhere, but that’s at an extra cost thatyou can avoid by purchasing another GeForce 9600 GT that doesThat ultimately prevents us from giving the card an outrightrecommendation, but that’s not to say there aren’t users that shouldlap up this card at its current asking price. Just be aware of itslimitations if you were hoping to use it in an HTPC.
