Closed Replacing GeForce 9600 GSO Tags: Graphics Cards Geforce Graphics Last response: June 21, 2012 3:36 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dyweasel June 21, 2012 1:03:28 PM I have been unable to resolve a serious FPS issue on my computer via software/driver fixes so I'm going to go out tomorrow and purchase a new Video Card and see where that gets me. Any advice on a replacement for a XFX Nvidia GeForce 9600 GSO? Here's some other specs -- MoBo -- XFX Nvidia 750i SLI NForce Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E 7500 @ 2.93GHz 3GB RAM Windows XP SP3 More about : replacing geforce 9600 gso auntarie a b U Graphics card June 21, 2012 1:11:02 PM What games do you want to play and what is your budget? The GTX 550ti would go well with that processor I think. Also, what are the specs on your PSU? bucknutty a b U Graphics card June 21, 2012 1:56:39 PM The 9600 was a great card back in the day, however it is a bit dated. There are so many great cards out now depending on your psu and budget. The AMD HD7770 or the GXT550ti are both awsome cards for around $130. If you wanted to spend a little more the GTX560 could be had for around 160.

The E7500 is still a good CPU even for today's standarts, but is it powerful enough? dyweasel June 21, 2012 2:09:44 PM I'd like to keep it under $200. Frankly, I worry that anything more expensive than that will be too much for my system anyway. My PSU is Aspire 600W DarkSide Alum Black dyweasel June 21, 2012 2:12:35 PM Whoops, forgot to answer about the games -- Diablo III, Minecraft, Skyrim, Civ V and bunch of indie games from Steam are the biggies right now. On a side note, I find myself constanly coming back to Crimson Skies. I really wish they'd do another one of those ... Best solution auntarie a b U Graphics card June 21, 2012 2:15:59 PM Share You shouldn't have any problem with the PSU then. The GTX 560 is the most powerful out of all mentioned, so that's your best bet if you don't mind spending $160 on it. auntarie a b U Graphics card June 21, 2012 2:17:25 PM And it will max out all of those games, except Skyrim. It's very CPU dependent. dyweasel June 21, 2012 2:19:04 PM Best answer selected by dyweasel.
