Take a look at the new "buyers guide" on Tom's Hardware. It might help you
decide...

Hello Keith,

Thanks for your answer.

I have already read the "buyers guide" at www.tomshardware.com ...

Before I read the test I was sure about which card to buy -- ATI Radeon
9500 Pro

After reading the "buyers guide" i am not sure anymore... soo i was hoping
if someone could guide me to buy the "best card" considering
price/performance....

Thanks for helping me out...

I have a question about Tom's recommendation, the
MSI FX5600-VTDR128. Presumably since there's no
"Ultra" suffix, this card is a lot slower.
(It's 325/ 550 MHz as opposed to an overclocked
Gainward 450/450 - true?)

I fail to see why he recommends it other than the fact
that it comes with lots of games, unless I'm mistaken
by the speed compared to the Gainward. Anyone out there
know for sure?

Cheers,

P.

The 2 OCing results I've seen for the 5600Ultra stepping A2 (running stable)
was 492/945 (BFGTech) and 485/979 (eVga).
That's a fair bit better than the standard 5600

Best Wishes
Thomas
