compneo is still being judged by the masses


Default Which ati card to get??!!

I just bought a 9500 pro last week, I'm new to ATI and love it. This 9500pro blew my TI4200 benchmarks out of the water!!!!! I have seen the light!! What I was wondering was, I just spend like 225.00 at best buy for this card, and have 30 days to return it. With all the news of the 9800 pro, and recent price drops...can I get a 9700 pro at a comparable price? Will the 9600 pro be better? I simply need an ATI veteran to give me some prices and links as to where I should sink my cash.

Asus P4S-533
Intel 1.8 P4 @ 2.4ghz
256MB PNY [email protected](vitelic chips)
Western Digital 40G @ 5200rpm
ATI RADEON 9500 PRO @ 355mhz core/315mhz mem
Winxp svc pack 1

check out newegg.com... That should give you all the pricing you need.... a 9700 np might be a good way to go...

but it look slike the 9600 pro will be about the same as a 9500 pro

You should be able to find a Sapphire 9700 (not pro) for around $225 or thereabouts. It is a great card. I know 3 people with one and they love it. On top of that, it looks identical to a Built By ATI Retail 9700 Pro. Even uses the same PCB(red), RAM and fansink setup. It will give you more where in counts in newer games.
