I Have had this graphics card for about 3 years now and it has never let me down, To This day the it meets all of my needs running just about any game i throw at it of High Settings. The Installation is a breeze you just slot it into your motherboard and your ready to go. It has two DVI ports but fortunately you are supplied with an adapter to connect it to your monitor via VGA. You can pick this up very cheap now and would highly recommended anyone who plays PC games at a medium level to purchase this. If you are wanting to play Skyrim on maximum settings however this will not be for you as it is quite old. It will also fit into most cases which is sometimes not the case. The Fan is also not too loud but still keeps the card cool.
My review of the GeForce 9600GT features better precision to the prior generations Graphic cards and this card is built for Windows Vista.
It's recommended Power Supply is 400 Watts but to be on the safe side i bought a 500watt PSU and runs without a problem
with a dedicated 512 MB of Memory and Clock Speed of 1.6 this beauty runs like a dream (playing Call of Duty 4 6 hours a night with precision quality no jumping or slow frame rates) with DirectX 10 GPU which delivers great levels of graphics
With the support of high resolution (up to 2560x1600) My 37Inch HD 1080p tv smoothly playbacks my movies with no problems.
GeForce 9600GT is able to playback H.264, MPEG-2, and WMV video with minimal CPU usage so the PC is free to do other work.
also this card has a NVIDIA nView multi-display technology which provides the ultimate in viewing and control for more monitors, which i use sometime while watching a movie and letting my girlfriend browse the web at the same time without disturbing the movie :).
This Graphic's card also supports NVIDIA SLI technology delivers up to 2x the performance of a single GPU by allowing exact same cards two graphics cards to run in parallel. But must have the SLI motherboard to be able to use 2 cards together. Sadly I didn't buy this so cannot comment on this much
