Point of View GeForce 9500 GT Graphics Card

Final Thoughts


It wasn't looking good for Point of View when the sample arrived, but the bottom line is pulling the card out of the box and seeing that HDMI port brought a whole new perspective to the card.


The native HDMI port really gives us the ability to use the card in a HTPC. And the fact that it runs cooler than the Leadtek option while also being 10dBs quieter makes it an excellent choice for people.


Performance really isn't there; it's a little bit faster than the Leadtek option for the most part, but nothing to get excited about. The inclusion of the HDMI port also makes it a little easier to accept the cost of the card when compared to the 9600 GSO.


Sure it's not a speed demon, but it was never going to be. Point of View have made sure the card offers a bit more value for money, making it stand out from the competition. There isn't a whole lot more you could ask for when you look for a graphics card under the $100 mark.


While I would still personally recommend spending the extra money on a 9600 GSO or 9600 GT so that you could really do a bit of serious gaming, the bottom line is if you're looking for something that's cheap and is just going to put a good picture on your TV, then the POV 9500 GT is a hard card to pass up.
