Default Radeon 9600 or 9600 Pro ?

you can't even hear the fan, it's too small and doesn't spin fast enough, on
the 9xxx series.

The 9600 uses slower memory than the 9600 pro.

I am running the 9600 non pro, newest drivers, but it shows up in xp, as a
9600 pro. I know its the 9600 because there isn't a fan on it, just the

sink, and the memory is different.

my 2 cents

get the 9500 pro at best buys at close out price of $149.
this card is cheaper and faster then 9600pro. search for reviews and

see what i'm talking about.

I was thinking of upgrading my stock ATI Rage32Mb, which really needs
to be changed.
I am considering the 9600/Pro, cos that is one of the few higher end
cards that doesnt require me to change my measely 250W PSU as well.

Is the 9600 a good option given that I dont have to up my PSU?
I have a Dell 4550, with P4 2.4, and 512Mb PC2700.

What are the main differences between the Pro and non-Pro versions,
and is there any reason to get one over the other? The ATI website
just lists clock-speed as the main difference, and I couldnt find any

Thanks all,
