View Full Version : Buyer's remorse on EVGA 9600GT? Almost

I have two rules when it comes to purchasing graphic cards;

1. Only buy ATI if the card is at least 25% faster at the same price point. This is because EVGA doesn't make ATI cards.

2. When buying nVidia, only buy EVGA. I had one rough experience with them, and they eventually made it right.

With that said, I opted to follow these rules and go with the EVGA 9600GT. Still, there was one card I almost bought over it. Look at this beast!

How many people here honestly keep a video card for two years or longer? I try to keep mine for awhile, but here I am upgrading after just under 2 years.

Well urm my 8800GTX is 1.5 years old so am getting close, but ASUS have 3 years so a little better.
