My local Fry's has advertised an AIW 9600XT DG video card for $129 (OEM
packaging) with no rebate. This is close to the lowest price I have ever
seen for these cards even after rebates.

I have never seen the DG suffix for this line of cards and the ATI
website does not have one. What exactly does this suffix mean and is
there any gotcha.

I do not need a powerful card and only want the AIW 9600XT for the FM
tuner (most AIW with AGP bus do not have this feature and you have to
step up to at least the AIW 9600XT for it. Currently running probably
first generation AIW radeon card).

I'm not sure...but it has a different part number than the retail AIW 9600XT
and is $60-65 less. Can't find any info as the meaning or what's left out or
off the card. Maybe it's just missing all the pretty packaging, it is
described as "white box", but every site that carries it has no details as
to specs or functions. My guess is that it's a standard AIW 9600XT card
without most of the assorted input/output cables and retail box.

The white box did not have a remote at least at Fry's. I do not know if
this is universal. Ended up not buying it.
