As far as the 5900 v 9800 Pro ATI is the better card.

I suggested this dude get the Sapphire 9600XT 256mb Card because he's not a big time gamer. $150 figured that'd be a good card for that budget, anyone else agree with that?
i never said i wasnt a hardcore gamer.

isnt it possible to get a 6900XT extreme and overclock it to a 9800 ?

that seems good to me, can it be done, or very near it

or not because of the 4 piplines

if i recall corectly, someone mentioned that the 9600pro is more overclockable then the 9600xt.

example- the 9600pro can be overclocked past the speed of the 9600xt overclocked.

I love Nvidia very much and yes i have a 5600 ultra. BUT if i could have got a 9800 pro i would have jumped on it. I recommend the 9800 pro or the 9600 pro.

I wasn't talking about you Voxx

Aright, so should I suggest he get the 9600PRO over the 9600XT, keep in mind he won't be overclocking the card though. Just needs the best bang for the buck without OC options. the 9800PRO and XT are above the budget so don't suggest that. I just simply want to know if the 9600XT was a strong card.
