I am gonna buy a GPU soon and ive decided with the 9600 and 9800 GT 512 mb versions. I know 9800GT is better but it costs RS1000($22) more than 9600GT. All i want to know is is it worth the extra money? I have a 1440x900 Monitor.
if you don't have much cash to spend then going for 9600GT is still ok considering the resolution you're playing at. i owned 9600GSO before (which is a bit weaker than 9600GT) even at 1366 x 768 my card still able to play some games on high/mid setting with good frame rates
yeah i cant spare the extra cash and is the XFX version good?
XFX has a very good reputation for their lifetime warranties, and I think they have double lifetime (say if you sell/give the card to a friend). But you need to register the card within 30 days of purchase to get the double lifetime warranty. Oh, I am not sure if the double lifetime is available in India.
If you cannot save up the extra $ for the 9800 GT, the 9600 GT will be just fine
