In Short this is the best 9600GT u can find whether for gaming needs or HTPC build (with so many outputs)
This card is not based on nvidia's reference design . Palit makes top quality products and this card has 3-phase power design(as opposed to the generally used 2-phase) which ensures cleaner and stable power suply which improves overclocking and reduces temperature.

NOTE : A common misconception about PALIT is that u have to ship to Hong Kong for RMA which is totally untrue. Their RMA Centre is in Indiana for USA.

I got my $40 rebate, this week, from the first time this came around.

card is great, but I still have the random audio pops over the hdmi connection problem, even with the new "official" vista driver when I hook it to the 52" samsung hdtv as the monitor over hdmi.

There are some issues with the DisplayPort since it's very new. Hopefully they will fix it since I do want more DisplayPort and less DVI. :) Does anyone know if it pass audio through HDMI or does it use the optical out?

Edit: Still no work on the coupon code yet.

this is better than that card with AA. 9600Gt leads slightly without AA, but with AA lead becomes bigger. and this is only like 10% less than 8800GT without overclocking. And it runs cooler and overclocks better due to palit's design.

with so many outputs, does this card support 3 or 4 displays? Or is it limited to dual monitor support like most gfx cards?
