Gigabyte has simply followed the ATI reference design for the G9600 Pro with only one modification, that being a slightly smaller PCB. Without a doubt, the ATI Radeon 9600 Pro based video cards are aimed at the more cost effective mainstream market, coming to the market without making a dent in your wallet while still maintaining decent performance.
Gigabyte's previous ATI based cards have been reasonable to great overclocking cards; this one has unfortunately fallen from the mold. While having a great software and features bundle, if you are looking to overclock the hell out of this one, you best look elsewhere.
Great performance for mainstream product
Great software bundle
No cooling on memory chips
