    Sorry for the fool thing but the 9500 pro out performs the FX 5600

    9500 pro got 1500+ MORE marks in 3dmark2001se

  4. Hi,

    The 9500Pro looks like a really good middle-end card and it is meant to have
    a good overclocking potential, what price can you buy it for?. The 9700
    vanilla (non pro) is a better card I think, it is identical to the 9500Pro
    EXCEPT it has a 256-bit memory interface, compared to a 128-bit memory
    interface on the 9500Pro. This gives it TWICE the potential memory
    bandwidth and would make a difference if you intended to play high res or
    with lots of AA and ansio. . . .

    I'm gonna read that toms review now. . . .
