Building a new system soon, found this old 384mb nvidia 9600 GSO lying around and figured I should sell it or something. How much would I get for it if I walked in to my local comp store (Obv it will vary but I mean AVERAGE price)

Ty in advance

Edit : its 4 months old I think. Great condition, hasnt been touched.

More about : 9600 gso

a used 9600GSO, $30-40 on ebay

Okay, would I get that price if I walked in to a store?

Considering a new 9600 GSO can go for about $55 - $60 before rebates...

$20 'cause whoever buys it need to make money too.

On Ebay you would probably get about $30, if you are saying your local store buys used cards then I would think they are going to offer you less.

I was expecting a little more, but thanks :)

True XD Or I guess putting 20 - 30 dollars on my next gpu budget would be a nice little extra.

Sorry for the probably double post but I was just thinking, would I be able to dual it with another 9600 gso that had 768mb or so or would it HAVE to be a 384mb one?

The 768mb card will work but it will only use half of its memory when in SLI with a 384mb card.

So if I got an evga one with 1.5gb memory it would put out 768mb resulting in just over 1gb with the two of them?

No you would only have 384MB.

The 1.5gb 9600 GSO is also a different(and slightly weaker) processor. I don't think you can SLI with that card even if you wanted to.

The 768MB card is also weaker. Both those cards use DDR2 and have less then 96SP.

Nah, the 384mb and 768mb cards are 192-bit and have a 96 SP G92 processors. The revision was a 256-bit 48SP G94 based processor with memory in multiples of 512mb.
The 768mb card did use DDR2 more often like you said(which made it slower) but the processor was the same.

Nvidia simply released to many cards with the name of 9600GSO. I was going to "object" to what you wrote when I realized you wrote what I meant. I don't remember the 768MB (which did normally have 96SP) having a 192bit bus, but I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia did make such a card. Its simply to hard to remember all of these cards, more so once you include the overseas only cards like the Galaxy 9600GSO which could unlock into an 8800GTX. Shame on Nvidia for doing this to us.

lol. you forget the 9600GSO 384mb was the 8800GS 384 with a new name (like the 8800GT to 9800GT) and who can forget the XFX 9600GTX (9600GSO with a slight OC)

Nvidia's naming strategy meeting

Or even worse the "low power" 9600GT by XFX that was actually a 9600 GSO(48 SP variety.) This kind of stuff may be why Nvidia dropped XFX.
October 3, 2010 8:59:21 PM

I totally agree, nvidias naming people are up.
I dont say why gpu makers cant just call it the ''1''

''Our best gpu to date is the 1! This new card outperforms the 2 with more stream processors and a higher memory clock'' I just cant see why they dont do that.

Because then the next card would need to be called the 0 followed by the -1, ect. :p

Is it just me that notices that XFX were the ones who seemed to have had the odd naming schemes but Nvidia are the ones who get the blame for it. Which as you say jyjjy is why they might have been dropped.

Ah, the weird and wonderful world of gpu's.
