as to the 9600SE/9200 debate:

the 9600SE not only has slow clock rates, but only hase a 64-bit Memory bus.

In other words, your memory badwidth just got halved!

Still, the GPU is still the same chip as the regular 9600 so it is DX9 and all so I would go with it instead of the 9200, which is just a sped up 8500.

if you have $300 to spend why not go the extra mile and just buy a card that you wont have to update for along time...i just bought an x800 pro and it is the greatest card i have bought yet........excellent performance

I'm willing to spend up to $300 as long as it's a good fit for my system. I'm thinking about getting the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (previous gen's top end card, right?). I hear ATI has the best previous gen card.


For ~$300 the GeForce 6800 is your best bet, followed by the 9800 Pro 256MB.

I just bought an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro for $200 at Fry's. Did I get a good deal?

Yeah, $200 is about the going proce of such a card.

They're solid, and considering your CPU, it was a good choice.

BTW, did you win that CPU/Mobo from AMD? I did, and it's my back up box. :-)
