For the price range at $120 - $230, Asus EN9600 GT is the faster than any other graphic card. With the core clock at 650Mhz and 512MB of memory, Asus EN9600 GT will enable you to play most games at average quality settings depending on your computer resolution settings. Asus EN9600 GT is also suited for home theatre personal computer and makes most new games playable.
Using the 9000-series graphic architecture, Asus EN9600 GT relies on the same core as the recently GeForce 8800 GT chip from earlier this year. The GeForce 9600 GT could also be a new card for the large improvement it takes at its cost compared with the GeForce 8600 GT. Nvidia originally compared its new chip with the less pricy Radeon HD 3850, but we might as well consider the higher-end ATI chip, as the 9600 GT beats them both. If you are frustrated about anything having to do with the GeForce 9600 GT, it’s that Nvidia did not let in an onboard audio chip in the new design. That remains one of ATI’s advantages, in that it saves you from having to connect a separate interior audio pass-through cable from your PC to your graphics card in order to send audio through the HDMI output. Asus helps take the edge off by including both a DVI-to-HDMI adapter as well as the audio cable in the box with its EN9600 GT card. ATI retains the advantage in adding its cards to a home theater PC because of the less complicated setup.
Installing GeForce 9600 GT to a standard personal computer is no longer difficult than some other midrange 3D card. You need to connect it straightaway to your PC’s power supply via a six-pin connector, and Asus as well includes a power cable adapter in the box as well. Since it’s a single-slot architecture, you should be able to fit the GeForce 9600 GT in any basic desktop with a PCI Express slot. It also supports Nvidia’s SLI dual-graphics card technology. For a single card, Nvidia urges your system have a 400-watt power supply. The GeForce 9600 GT is definitely a graphic card that NVIDIA assuring will hit a sweet spot for gamers, providing superior operation while at the same time being cheap.
