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 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.
