9600 GT pricing emerges
From as little as €149
According to a post on a Japanese Website, the GeForce 9600 GT will be priced at as little €149 in Japan, although this is only for one specific inno3D card. Most cards seems to be priced around €165, with some models all the way up to €189.
The Website lists prices for cards from several of Nvidia's partners, such as Albatron, AOpen, inno3D, Leadtek, Zotac and XFX, although more companies are listed but without pricing. The most expensive model is the Zotac 9600GT 512MB AMP Edition at €189, but this card is overclocked to 725MHz for the core, 1,750MHz on the Shaders and the memory at 2GHz.
Expect to add VAT to these prices in Europe, as Japan has much lower sales tax than what we do in Europe. We also spotted a card for pre-order in South Africa for about €185.
You can find the list of cards here and if you live in South Africa and want to place a pre-order, then you can go here.
