Default Vid Card Comparisons

I just purchased an Novatech radeon 9600 256 MB Graphics card shown here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814166005
I am not to impressed and am thinking about returning it. I was looking into these two cards, will you please compare them with eachother and with what i just bought and give me your overall opinion on it. Thanks.

9600XT, it has 500mhz clock speed compared to SE's 325mhz. Other than that they look the same, just the 9600XT has a higher clock speed

Does the clock speed make all the difference? I mean will that 9600 XT be better than my 256 9600?

The 9600XT can render textures faster, but the 9600 has a bigger bandwidth, so it can render bigger textures, but at a slower pace. Depends on what you want to play with it.
