Final Thoughts


The 9600GT and 9600 GSO continue to remain extremely close in pricing. The thing is that while the 9600 GT is 20% more expensive than the GSO, it's only $20 AUD more. However, the 9600GT for the most part is really only 10% faster than the 9600 GT.


The 9600GT does have the added advantage of extra memory, but you could get the 768MB version of the GSO which has more memory than the 9600GT and for roughly the same price; give or take $5.


It's all very confusing really. If you throw overclocking into the mix, the 9600 GSO is able to outperform the 9600GT for the most part. So what do you buy? - On a whole, the 9600 GSO is actually a pretty good buy. Like we said, it's 20% cheaper and only 10% slower than the 9600GT. If you feel like spending some extra dollars, however, you could go the 9600GT or even the 9600 GSO 768MB if you love lots of memory.


All in all, the 9600 GSO ZOTAC card is a good card and represents some excellent value for money. Performance on the most part is only just behind the 9600GT and availability on the model is good as well. If you want to do a bit of mid-res gaming and don't have a load of money to spend, the 9600 GSO is going to be a good choice.
