We need yo know more about your system to tell you whether it is the right card for you. Tell us your processor, ram, power supply and monitor's native resolution.

What are the options do you have for the cards? Can you make us a list of what cards you can lay your hands on.

Well it's cheap and not totally awful. If you only have the 44 bucks to spend on a card I guess that's a good buy, but I agree with everyone else that you would be better off spending a little more $ for something that will last longer. If you're stuck at that budget though you're probably not going to do much better than that card.

Converting directly to dollars is a bit misleading. How much are you paying in your currency?

As an owner of an 9600GT, it is still a capable card at an affordable price. It's a bit old I suppose since it came out in 2008, but at that time it was considered an above average mainstream gaming card.

The 9600GT very close to the newer GT 240 in terms of performance. The 9600GT is a DX10 card while the GT 240 is a DX11 if I am not mistaken. The GT 240 is considered a value segment video card. See following review for benchmarks of the two cards and some other cards as well.

In terms of resolution, you should look at 1280 x 1024 since it is close your monitor's resolution. Your monitor's resolution is actually about 20% less than the lowest resolution they tested. Therefore, you should expect better results than the benchmarks in the review if you were to use the same graphics settings and assuming you are using the same CPU (Core i7-975 Extreme Edition) which you are not.

That is quite high! I am from India, and our currency is quite close to yours. And we get 9600GT for something around 5000 INR - 5300INR including shipping!

Have you considered an HD 5770, similar price but faster than 9600GT + DX10.

^^HD5770 and 9600GT aren't similar prices. There's a huge difference. The only thing which i can say is close to the 9600GT in price is HD5570.

If you see a HD 5770 for a similar price as the 9600GT, then you better inform the OP quickly, because he is about ready to buy a new 9600GT for $44 + shipping.

The lowest priced HD 5770 on Newegg is $140 it has a mail-in rebate, but I can guarantee that rebate check will not be mailed outside the US. Plus Newegg only does business in the US and Canada.

Therefore, if you are trying to say the 9600GT and HD 5770 are similarly priced plus/minus around $100, then you are absolutely correct!!!

Thanks all for your advise
But what do you think about this PALIT brand? Is it a good brand? Above 9600 gt is PALIT.

It's not a bad brand, not the best, but that's why they are cheap. Just buy it you won't do better for that price :)

Palit does it business mainly in the European and Asian segment and is a good brand, offers good support and has nice warranty. I have a Palit HD4850, it was bought when Palit were still making ATI cards. Hasn't caused a single problem in 3 years.

Dude that 9600gt is cheap even I would go for it just to have it as a spare. They are too weak for the newest games but are ok for most games given that you use the right settings. Next in line is a 9800gt and I own two of them they are good cards for the price.
