    Now to sum things up. The Radeon 9600 is ATI's first graphics card to use the 0.13 processing technology and I must say that ATI played their cards right on this one. All while NVIDIA was scrambling, trying to put together their FX line with the hot new 0.13 technology, and the results were nothing but disappointment. ATI sat back and let NVIDIA be the guinea pig, then ATI made their move, a successful one at that, and released the 9600. As you've already seen, the card looks quite puny but I promise you, it's only because of the advanced technology that allowed FIC to rid of the bulky cooling units usually found on a video card.

    Overall, the A96P is an excellent card, especially when you want to talk about getting the maximum amount of performance for your money. Of course there are faster cards out there, and if you have the money then I don't see any reason why you shouldn't go big on your graphics card. If you're like me and don't need top of the line material, but rather a smarter purchase that will tackle your gaming needs, then I definitely recommend the A96P. When cost/effectiveness is the name of the game, the 9600 is the way to go. Also because of such great overclocking ability, I give it 9.5 out of 10 stars!
