The ATI 9xxx series outperforms the nvidia FX series. That 9600Pro would probably do much better than the FX 5700LE

if you want Pixel shader 3.0, you could wait for a little bit and get the AGP Geforce 6200. its better than a 5200, but i don't know if its quicker than the 9600Pro/XT. it will probably last longer though, because of PS & VS 3.0.

meh the 6200 is the complete budget card, hardly even meant for gaming really. Lacks the instructions and power for it. He'd probably be better off with the 9600XT although I can't say I've seen any benches of 9600XT vs a 6200 lol

That's a good deal, smart move.

@ switch, pixel shader 3? Why would you buy a crappier card just for pixel shader 3? That's just stupid imo.
