    radeon 9600xt, how much are those? :dunno:
    don't get nVidia though, they all get outperformed by the ATi cards

    I just picked up a refurb 9600 Pro from Newegg for $125. It works well. Now if only the rest of my comp could keep up. You can get an ATi clone 9600 Pro retail box for probably ~$150.

    From all the benchmarks I looked at, you had to step up to at least a FX5700 to keep up with the Radeon 9600's.
