Palit GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Sonic NE/960TSX0202

Just two short months ago, the dual-GPU GeForce 9800 GX2 arrived on-scene and crushed the competition. Mere days later the GeForce 9800 GTX launched and offered a decent price point for a modern replacement of the GeForce 8800 GTX. But all of these high-level products leave a big hole in the low- and mid-income segments of the enthusiast markets. Everyone like to game, right?

It doesn't happen very often, but occasionally NVIDIA offers a rough diamond that compete with all of those polished gems. We last witnessed this phenomenon in the GeForce 8800 GT video card product launch. Back then, an upper-crust mid-level graphics card was handing out pink-slips to some of NVIDIA's most expensive crown jewels.

So imagine the value in a card based on binned-down G92 GPU's but still delivers excellent performance with plenty of scalability for high-resolution monitors.

Because it's part of the GeForce 9-series family, it can offer a vast array of multimedia capabilities, but without the cost of a higher level product. Enter the Palit GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Sonic graphics card SKU NE/960TSX0202.
