GeForce GTX 9600 

Released May, 2009
  • 580 MHz
  • 512 MB GDDR3

This is a fairly hefty price tag, but considering this is an early listing it wouldn't be surprising if the price drops to $899, or remains at about €900 for the European market, or both.

It’s impressive, even if its $1000 price point is far out of reach for most consumers.
