Hello again.
I am currently buying a graphic card (9600 xt) and would like to know if there is any real difference between the two manufacterers. There is a quite a difference in price, connect3d being like 70$ cheaper then asus.....

Thx for helping out people!

The only main difference will be cooling. The performance should be almost identical.

There could be a difference in which memory been used, also ASUS is known for including unique features on their cards.

Yeah but he never said anything about overclocking. :tongue: And the only main difference is cooling (thats why I mentioned it). But ok I'll stop flaming/moaning now... Just hate to see a "n00b" scared off thinking " I asked about a 3d card and this guy mentions memory???" LOL
