Asus EN9600GSO/DI/512MD3


$125.00 Released August, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Relatively simple installation, essentially plug-and-play. Highly affordable, ideal for budget builds that need a dedicated GPU. VGA connection is great if being used as an upgrade to an older system.

The Cons:Larger form factor than expected for these specs, may be an issue for smaller cases. Framerate quality suffers when recording gaming sessions. Tends to heat up under moderate to heavy load.

The Asus EN9600GSO/DI/512MD3 is a mid-range video card that covers basic functions. It can handle most common tasks and casual games, although the limited amount of memory makes it unsuitable for hardcore gamers or CAD professionals.
