At the more affordable end of the spectrum, Nvidia has added the GeForce 9500 GT. The GPU on this card features 32 stream processors and a 550MHz core speed, 1400MHz shader speed, and 128-bit memory interface. Nvidia quotes three different memory configurations for 9500 GT cards: 512MB of 500MHz DDR2, 256MB of 800MHz (1600MT/s) GDDR3, and 512MB of 800MHz GDDR3. (For reference, the GeForce 9600 GT has twice as many stream processors, higher clocks, a wider memory bus, and half a gig of memory by default.)

Two flavors of the 9500 GT have already appeared at Newegg: a $69.99 eVGA card with reference clocks, and an $89.99 Gigabyte variant with a 700MHz core speed. Both have 512MB of 800MHz GDDR3 RAM. More 9500 GTs are on the way, too: Palit has announced two variants, including one with 1GB of 800MHz DDR2 RAM and a passive cooler.
