Default 9600XT All In Wonder

Anyone use the AIW 9600XT? I love the features and can pick one up for $140 shipped but I wonder if I should go for a faster card (9800Pro,6600, 6600GT)and get a TV tuner later? Also, I want to run dual monitors at some point......

You know, I have not gotten into games too much due to my outdate rig. I do have some demo games and one that I won but I have not played them. I do play Flight Sim from time to time though. I guess when I get decent video I will want to play more games.

I'd fork over the money for an X800 XL if ya can afford it. You can snag it for $300, and it is the best bang/buck ratio out there right now, and it is ideal for the latest games. If not, then go for a 6600 GT or a 9800 Pro. They will run the latest games pretty decent, and are pretty cheap.
