    Go to best buy and get the 9600Pro packaged as a 9600se for $130. It's in the hot deals section.
     

  7. you also get HL2 coupon with that, right?

    9600se is not the same as 9600pro. I looked at the 9600se in person and its so bare it doesnt even have a fan on it. If you can offord the 9600xt go for that. Its 199 otherwise grab a 9600pro

    Exactly why that deal is so good, it is a PRO in an SE box, if you pick the right serial number...

    Bestbuy (in store) has ATi's Radeon 9600SE for $130 plus free Half-Life 2 game (when available). Instead of 9600SE, the 9600 Pro is inside certain boxes. You will have to look at the serial number listed outside of the box to determine which card is inside. Thanks to [email protected] & hkgonra.

    180336X = pro
    180339X = pro
    180340X = Non pro
    180338X = Non pro
