Sparkle GeForce 9500GT 1GB

"The graphics cards using NVIDIA's GeForce 9500GT are generally sub-$100 retail products and some of them go as low as $50 USD. With these being low-end graphics cards, they go without any elaborate cooling solutions or any extras. As the 9500GT is a low-power graphics processor, an active heatsink isn't needed. Some of the 9500GT models manufactured by Sparkle Computer and other partners simply use a passive cooler. With the Sparkle 9500GT we have our hands on, there is a small aluminum cooler with a moderately sized fan. On top of the cooler is just a plastic facade for the aesthetics. This active cooler dissipates heat from both the GPU and the DDR2 video memory. This graphics card has 1024MB of 128-bit DDR2 memory."
