Default NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Review - Budget Gaming Redux

Don't get me wrong - I love products like the GeForce GTX 280 and the Radeon HD 4870 X2 as much, if not more than, the next guy. But I also am privy to the truth: the GPU giants make their cash on cards like the new GeForce 9500 GT. Though not as sexy and exciting as the world of uber-expensive and super-high-end graphics cards the budget graphics parts are gobbled up by hungry OEMs looking to build a "gaming" system and users with consistent wallet deficiency.

On a pretty consistent basis we see technologies from the high-end GPUs, like NVIDIA's new GT200 or AMD's new RV770, filter down into the budget realm with less performance, less memory and a that all important lower price tag. Today NVIDIA is unveiling an update to their sub-$100 GPU line up with a new products in the 9000-series of parts called the GeForce 9500 GT.



While it's not going to light most enthusiast pants on fire, the GeForce 9500 GT should excite those intended targets like extremely-budget builders and OEMs. With $90 graphics cards like this it hard to see how the PC can be doubted as a top gaming platform for the future.
