asus, sapphire, ati.. those are all good. I think sapphire in general are betting for overclocking though (i think), then ATI's ran the highest fps in all the benchmarks.. which was like .3-.5fps more hehe

Dude go with the makers go with the ati. My question is why would you want to spend 300 or so on a new card that is already out dated when the 9600 is still a really good card and runs all the latest games id save teh money you have to buy the 9800 and then with that id save up more money and geyt the x800 xt because that will be the highest compitition for the 6800s and it will make you look good so save up dont buy no 9800 wait save up and go with the x800xt and thats the only way to go.
