Meh nvm I can't find the review I saw... anyways I believe it is faster.

LOL okay, here is the 9550:
Chipset/Core Speed: ATI Radeon 9550/250MHz
Memory/Effective Speed: 256MB DDR/400MHz

And here is the 9600pro:
Chipset/Core Speed: ATI Radeon 9600PRO/400MHz
Memory/Effective Speed: 256MB DDR/600MHz

See the speed difference? The 9600pro will be alot better plus I believe it can be overclocked a fair bit as well.

not really i think thats a common misconception. when u look at a vid card u look at its clock speed not its ram, well u look at that too but the clock speed is a big deal too. technically yes double the ram is betetr but also kinda no

Those look the same but with about a $4 price differential.

Lol that is a Newegg error, same part and manufacturer number... the names are just switch-a-roo'd, and so are the prices.
