Nvidia GT 430 vs 9600 GSO 768MB 96sp

Hey guys i already own a 9600 GSO 768MB DDR3 should i consider buying a GT430 is it really worth it??

The card will be used for watching HD content and very rare gaming @ 1366x768 res

Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

  1. The 430 has some nice bits for the HTPC side of your build, but the gaming would just be non-existent; not an upgrade from your 9600. (the 5450 has those same bits minus the 3D, and is a ton cheaper though)

    the gt430 is a POS. Dont buy it. What made you even think of getting this? What reviews did you read that I didnt? its a very poor performing card for the price. At the lower price points ATI is king. get a 5670 or 5570 or something. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-430-gf108-fermi,2766-6.html

    Hey i never read any reviews and i just thought a GT430>9600GSO. Newer tech, DX 11, Bluray3d support but i guess i was wrong mate. Anyways so should i buy a hd5670 or a hd5570?

  4. right now i'm inclined towards buying a HD5670 for 64$ after MIR.
  5. If you rarely game, what's wrong with the 9600 you already have?

    9600 is fine but i wanted to invest in something a bit beefier than 9600.
  7. What games are you rarely playing then?
  8. I owned a 9600 GSO 768 from XFX and i was running the original crysis on a lga 775 core 2duo 2.4 GHz adn 2 gigs od DDR2 1066. stick with the GSO till u decide to fully upgrade. Just saying:D i miss my 9600 gso lil dude was a trooper

    You would rather want a 450, 460
    Or go with a Radeon 5770/6850

    HD5770 is around 150$ 6850 is 170$ and they are out of my budget. How about a HD5670?? coz i have a low res 19" lcd 1366x768?

    i am very familiar with the hd4670 in which i have no complaints.
    i actually really like the card and scores good on WEI if that's your thing.
    so i can only go on that by saying the hd5670 will be just as good.
    hope that helps.


    yea thanks alot man. so i think i should go on and buy a HD5670.
  13. btw thanks alot guys for your input
