Default BFGTech GeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB graphics card

After some careful analysis of the changes, it doesnít appear to make much sense spending any more than about £120 on a GeForce 9600 GT now, because at that point the stretch to £140 isnít too far away. BFGTechís GeForce 9600 GT OC is currently sitting at around £115 including delivery (if you take advantage of Scanís free delivery offer for regular contributors to the bit-tech community) Ė at that price, itís not a bad deal but I do have some concerns.

For out-and-out gamers, I have no problem recommending BFGTechís GeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB graphics card Ė it delivers strong performance at a good price point for those that cannot afford to stretch to £140 for a GeForce 8800 GT. The ten year warranty is also a good peace of mind if youíre planning to use the card as a family (or even a personal) hand-me-down, where it makes its way into older systems as and when you upgrade your main machine.

However, if you are looking to use the card in a home theatre PC, the bundle is missing both the DVI-to-HDMI converter and S/PDIF cable, which means that you wonít be able to connect the card to your HDTV and carry audio over the HDMI cable at the same time. Of course, you can acquire the required parts elsewhere, but thatís at an extra cost that you can avoid by purchasing another GeForce 9600 GT that does

That ultimately prevents us from giving the card an outright recommendation, but thatís not to say there arenít users that should lap up this card at its current asking price. Just be aware of its limitations if you were hoping to use it in an HTPC." come with the required connectors, as itíll no doubt be cheaper to buy a card with them bundled than it will to buy them separately
