    the 9600 is a few dollars more, worth it?

    that's what I've heard too - but I can't find the 9500 pro around here and I want instant gratification so I'll probably go for the 9600 pro

    I like my Gigabyte 7600GS. No fan so it's nice and quiet, though I do have a 130mm fan pointed at all the PCI cards to keep them all cool at once.

    Christ. Get a 7900GS. They're about $10 and well worth the price.

    I'd just like to point out to those who may not have noticed that this thread was started in 2003.
