Its a cut down 9600GSO, so its probably on par with a HD4670/650, still cheaper so hot! :D

Thanks, repped you - may there be any compatability issues, I have a Dell E520 I think the PSU is 305W max, I take it both cards are PCI-E?! :thumbsup:

Out of stock atm, but much much better value for money. IMO.

i am looking for an upgrade to my card as its getting a bit long in the tooth now which is a 7600GT, are these quite similar in terms of performance?

Yeah this is PCI_E 2.0 which is backwards compatible with PCI-E 1.1 , dell PSU's are usually under rated you should be fine
#11
Is this is significant enough step up from my X1900XT?
#12
Be warned, this is the newer, but slower version of the 9600GSO.. Original was 384MB GDDR3 on a 192bit bus. This one is 512MB GDDR2 on a 128bit bus. A HD4670 will run rings around it for £15 more and consume considerably less power doing it.

Decent enough price, but just bare ^^ in mind when looking at old reviews or thinking "wow this card was £80 a few months ago". :p

can someone please explain 'free delivery hexus and avforums' as I can't seem to get the free delivery

TIA

hi does anyone know if this requires additional power or will motherboard power be sufficient?

Thanks for the heads up! What HD4670 are you specifically referring to?

It will require a 6-pin power connector from the PSU.

Decent 350W+ PSU that isn't already overloaded with 10 hard drives and a zillion fans and lights.
A spare 16x PCI-e slot. Check your motherboard manual, website or crack open the case.

Can't speak for AVForums, but if your a member of the hexus forums and have 20+ constructive posts you qualify for free standard delivery with scan on orders over twenty quids.

The original version needed a 6pin PCI-e connector, would imagine this version is the same.

Any of them tbh. Scan do both the Gigabtye and Sapphire for £54.07 and £54.27 respectivly and if you shop around ebuyer etc you might save a couple of quid more. (sorry, cant post links, new member + posting links = post has to be approved by a mod).

If anyone cares, this is how it stacks up.

Seems to be on par with the 7900s, but less powerful than any X1900
#21
Loads of problems with hdmi audio on ati cards, including my 4350. Might just give this one a go.

Err, drspa44 you got the wrong card selected.

9600 GSO 512 is listed just under crossfire X1900s. It would absolutely crush any single X1900 card down; beside, something like 3Dmark06 will more clearly show its performance advantage over X1900. (9000 vs 5000)

This is pretty much cut down version of the original G80 generation 8800m GT, with 96 stream shaders. It was about twice as fast as the previous gen 7900 GS.
#23
Remember this is DDR2.

NOT DDR3
#24
That benchmark isn't very accurate. It puts my 4670 below my old x1950 pro which is half as fast.
#25

Is that a HDMI connection which will also transmit audio? Anyone know this for sure?:?
#26
DDR2 at 500MHz on a 128bit bus. So that's 16 GB/sec memory bandwidth, the same as an old 6600GT graphics card from mid 2004. Compared to 38.4 GB/sec on a real 9600 GSO which is already a third slower than the 8800GT/9800GT .

Basically like others have said the slow memory is a real mismatch for the power of the card when gaming.
#27
This card actually uses the 96 shader core but has a 128 bit memory access with GDDR2 RAM.
#28
Need a new card and don't want to spend a fortune is this one any better than this?

If you can get the card it looks a decent price and has relatively low power requirements too.

Here are some reviews:

http://www.guru3d.com/article/ati-radeon-hd-4670-review/:

Make sure you get the GDDR3 version and not the slower DDR3 version.

If you have a good quality PSU look for an HD4830 as they can be had for around £60 to £65.

Hi

I have a 8600 GT

Would this card (9600 GSO) provide a noticeable improvement?

thanks

Why?
#32
Had to wait for my Hexus account to get the free postage sorted a bit late so paid £2.28 more than I would of yesterday. Still a bargain.

Why?

Higher clock speed, faster memory and more bandwidth.

If you read some of the other posts you will see that this "older version" is actually faster than the newer ones.
