Hi,

I don't think you will be able to buy a Radeon 9500Pro anymore, at least I
can't here in the U.K. For a small amount extra you could consider a 9700
(168 here) and I think this will beat an FX 5600Ultra. You will have to
spend some time reading up all the latest benchmarks to be sure. .

Don't be a fool get a 9500 pro

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

i had the 5600 and i'm still using the 9500 pro

9500 pro got 1500+ MORE marks in 3dmark2001se

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. . . .
