    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 love mine, great damn card...pretty good OC'er..got this Pre-OC'd card up to 810GPU, 1950Shaders and 1100 Memory, running the fan at a locked 50% (rivatuner) netted me no higher than 47C load temps during gaming/benching. A simple vmod got me up to 870/2150 on GPU and Shader. I am very content with the card, and that's a great price!

    you should only buy this card if your into multimedia. I really like this card but the thing that really bothers me is no included cables in the box except for SPDIF, you can add $20 for every cable corresponding to it's output. :(

    Sure that's a bummer...but I only use DVI on mine for my LCD Monitor and I'm not bothered by it...having the ability for more connections is nice...my favorite aspect is what lies under that fan shroud. It's a 2-Heat Pipe Zalman style cooler with copper pipes, aluminum fins, and a memory heatsink plate. The cooling does very good, and for this price, beating the cooling on this card justifies the price imo...you could get a basic single slot cooled card, slap on an aftermarket cooler and spend more for similar results or save a little cash and have better cooling from the get-go. Part of why I got my Palit for $150 a while back...when others were $140-180, so save $10 and spend $30+ on cooling? For some that may not matter, maybe single slot is fine, and that's cool, then save even more money by going that route! I wouldn't just recommend this card for those into multimedia tho, you have a good point Calvary, but there's more to this card and it's features...3-phase power, better cooling, pretty damn good OC-ability, software controllable fan, IMO this card is definately worth looking into if you want a decently priced upgrade that will help with gaming performance and visual quality.

    that card is one of my favourites in recent history.

    I really love the bonus ports and the optical in is a DAMNED WINNER.

    i would take it, if i had the money. i really want a card with native HDMI, and the audio input over optical would be a real saver.
