ASUS Radeon 9600 XT/TVD

Conclusion

Thanks to its Video-In & Out functionality, the excellent hardware monitoring support and, not to forget, its refreshingly independent styling, the Radeon 9600 XT/TVD really stands out from the competition. This good impression is reinforced by its good software and gaming bundle, earning the card an Editor's Choice Award.

The 3D performance fulfilled our expectations of a Radeon 9600 XT card (for reference check out our VGA Charts ), so if you're looking for a solid gaming card from the upper middle class, look no further.
