However, the standard 9500GT is price a little more reasonably, and you have to realize the card just came out, so prices will be a little higher, they will setle down a week or two after launch. The price on the standard 9500GT is $70, which isn't that bad for the price point, a similarly equiped 8600GT goes for the same $70 price.
Yeah I wasnt talking about the 9500GT in general...just this version.
It seems kind of stupid charging so much extra. When your on a budget, as much as you would like to care about temps and better cooling, your always going to be more concerned about your price/performace.
But yeah even as you said with the card just being released being more expensive....soo true.
