NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Review - Budget Gaming Redux

Author: Ryan Shrout
Manufacturer: NVIDIA

Call of Duty 4

Call of Duty 4 (DirectX 9)

of Duty 4 is the next iteration of the very popular CoD series and is a
return of the Infinity Ward team that made CoD1 and CoD2 so
successful.  The graphics for this title are simply amazing, and
considering that it is still a DX9 graphics engine, developers of these
DX10 titles we use should be shamed!  If you want a great single and
multi-player experience set in a modern warfare environment, don't pass
up Call of Duty 4.

As it turns out the GeForce 8600 GTS is still performing very well when compared to the new GeForce 9500 GT card.  Remember the 8600 GTS still has 32 stream processors of its own running at a higher shader and core clock frequency; but based on the G84 design from early last year.  One thing is for sure though in that the AMD Radeon HD 3650 512MB card isn't keeping pace with these two NVIDIA cards.

This card has lasted me five years and can still play alot of modern games at 30+ fps, Its been an amazing card and ill be sad to see it go but its time for my computer to recieve an upgrade but if your looking for a reliable and a graphics card that can play modern games on medium to low and older games on medium to high then this is the card for you. Its very PSU friendly which my new cards wont be as much as they will require 1000w.

for this particular model, does it matter which of the two dvi output connector (left or right one) I hook the monitor to? or are they the same performance-wise?
