“ Club 3D NVidia 9600 Lite Edition - Graphics adapter - PCI Express 2.0 x16 - 512 MB GDDR2 - Digital Visual Interface (DVI), HDMI ( HDCP ) „
This was the first Graphics card i had in my PC. I chos eit because I saw reviews that said it was a good value card, now being limited to only having one PC it makes it difficult to comapre to others, but the impression I got when researching and from my experience, this card was (I say was because I have upgraded now) a fairly good card and gave respectable frame rates, especailly for around the £60 mark.
It has a DVI port, an HDMI port and a VGA port. It also has SLi technology allowing you to link two of the same graphics card together to run them in parralel for quicker, higher resolution gaming.
I believe you could also run two PC monitors from this card, but:
1) I never got to try this out
2) Your monitors would need two different connections, for example one with HDMI and one with DVI which could potentially be a pain, however I am unaware of anything, but there may be a dual adapter to convert one DVI port to two however I dont think there is.
I upgraded my PC a month after I bought it but this weas only because the money was available to me to do so, I opted for an ATI Radeon 5850 card in the end which, although being much better, is also much more expensive. This cards fps rates in games just wasn't quick enough for me, but it will compete if you are playing most games, it will just struggle on ones that are hugely demanding on the graphics card.
Overall I would say this card IS good value for money but I have heard there are faster and better cards from ATi at this price so be sure to do your research especailly on the differences between this card and the ATi HD4730, it may be your better option.
