    The 9600 is, wouldn't pay more than about 120usd for either card though...
    the new 5700's and 9600XT's are right at 199.00. I bought a 5600 Ultra for
    124.99 because of price and am very happy, although the 9600 Pro is
    obviously faster when benchmarked. The 5700's though have given the 9600XT
    a run for the money. Hope this helped!

    What about those two cards vs a Ti4200?

    The 9600 will have higher framerates. The 5600 has more stable drivers.
    Define better...

    9600 in most cases. I didn't like the 5600's when they first came out
    and still don't. 5700U on the other hand is excellent.

    Don't forget that the 9600 (non-pro) can be upgraded to a 9600 Pro
    (non-non-pro) with a simple BIOS flash, and voila, you just bought yourself
    a free graphics card update.

    Where would you get the BIOS flash? I've been considering a 9600 Pro for my
    spare computer, however if I can get a pro for the price of a non-pro it
    looks even better.

    Due to an excessive amount of spam, if you want to send me an e-mail put
    eniplA in the subject if you want me to see it.

    From what I have heard, you just d/l the latest bios for the pro version and
    flash the non-pro with it.

    Sapphire branded ones supposedly take it quite well.
