It's been out for awhile and posetd about in another thread.

I have to agree with your title though, it is a mid range card at best, medium-high in SLI.

Not worth the time and money to buy such a product as the next gen will be out soon enough from ATI and Nvidia.

The 9600GT IS a next gen card, and it's a pretty good one too. It keeps up with the 8800GT and 3870.

I agree, and I like the way ATI and Nvidia are going. The 9600GT is a next gen card, all be it med/high-range. My decision based on that it's the G94 chip, Dx10, PCIe 2.0 and most importantly 65nm. LOL I remember when GPU's were 105nm.

When I went to the G92 GTS from a G90 GTS, my new card was cooler, and I could now go SLI without upgrading power supplies. Not to mention a 40% approxiamte gain in performance.

This 9600GT is a lil' bit over-priced but would be a great card for some gaming and some video.

prices will drop soon enough as it is meant for the midrange segment. From what I've been seeing it is a great card for the mid-range segement and will finally bring some competition in between ATI and Nvidia for this segement.

Finally!?!? The 8600GT and GTS is a well priced mid-range card.

I bought an 8800GTS 640MB when they first came out, and can honestly say that I haven't owned a video card for as long as I have this one. I see no need to upgrade this fellow anytime soon.

The whole graphics card industry is in an odd state it seems.

I was not overly happy with the 8800GTS I bought so I gave it to my son. I'm waiting for something better to come out.

This card is just the Baby of the next series and they should be launching something better during the next month.

It's supposed to be a 9800GT...lol. Nvidia is "catching up" to ATI (Radeon 9800XT!) lmao.

I'm guessing this new card will be a very powerful card. Migh unseat my card from the throne.

im just gonna wait for the overpriced 9000 series cards to come out and pick up a cheap 8800 series card. evidently the 9000 series are nothing more than rebranded 8000 series cards with smaller dies and slightly faster clock speeds.my basement is chilly and dry so heat isnt an issue, and from what ive seen the 8800 series of cards are plenty enough for what i want.
