XFX GeForce 9600GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition

Final Thoughts


The 9600GT from XFX is nothing short of blistering fast. It's really able to nip at the heels of the more expensive 8800GT 1GB most of the time. Performance is what this card is all about and it does a damn good job at it. What's also surprising is the impressive bundle; with a full version copy of Company of Heroes and a few extra goodies it really does stand out from the pack.


Not everything is perfect with the card though; the aftermarket cooler is loud and doesn't cool as well as the stock ones. If XFX wanted to stay with a single slot design, we probably would have opted to stay with the reference cooler which is pretty good.


The other downfall to the product is the price; it's one of the most expensive 9600GT cards on the market. Only you will be able to justify the cost to performance. For the price, you're entering the realm of 512MB 8800GTs with stock clocks.


There's no doubt however that if you're looking for the fastest 9600GT on the market, this is the card to get. We do wonder though that at this price point your money may possibly be better spent on a different model.
