Connect3D 9500 128Mb: 9700 Pro performance for <€200?

Until now the best bang for the buck card in the €150-200 range was the Nvidia GF4 Ti4200, but ATI wanted a piece of that pie too so they released the cheaper 9500 / 9500 Pro. Is ATI about to dethrone Nvidia in de sub €200 market? Read on.

Box contents:

Colorful boxes are fun until you´ve opened them and take up space, so I decided to save a few euro´s and buy the bulk version. It still contains every thing youll need, but nothing more:

  • - A Connect3D 9500 128Mb videocard
  • - A powercable with floppy connector
  • - A TV-out cable
  • - A S-VHS to RCA connector
  • - A DVI to VGA converter
