Default Should I return Radeon 9600 Pro?

Hey guys, I ordered a Radeon 9600 XT 256mb and was sent a 9600 Pro 256mb instead. My question is, is the XT that much better to the point where I should bother with returning the pro and getting refunded and then buying the XT from somewhere else? (since the first website I ordered from doesn't have the XT in stock) This whole process will probably take atleast 2 weeks and I just want to know if the XT is worth doing that for, or would the differnce between the two cards not be noticeable enough to go through this hasle?

I guess I should've mentioned that - the XT was $100 with shipping and the Pro is $80 withOUT shipping. But I just want to know, money aside, is the XT that much better?

not especially... I mean, you got ripped, but is it worth the time/trouble and cash to ship it back? It's a personal decision really. The performance isn't a big difference.

I have another idea. Send them a dirty e-mail and have them refund you for the difference between the Pro and the XT. They should probably be legally obliged to do that.

Ya... I'd say going w/ a 6600 for round $100 would be better... but I think the pro's close to the XT so you can just try to get the difference if you want to keep it.
