Default radeon 9500 pro

I'm looking at video cards, and the new ATI radeon 9500 really has caught my eye. at only a 10% reduction in performance from the 9700 pro, this seems like a very good bargain buy. however, I am unfamiliar with almost all of the add-in board manufacturers.

long long ago, I was familiar with the hercules line of products, but not anymore. if anyone could help steer me in the proper direction on this one, I'd be quite appreciative.

here is a list of manufacturers that are currently partnered with ATI:

Connect 3D
CP Technologies
FIC
Gigabyte
Hercules
Hightech
Sapphire
Wistron
Yuan

The Gigabyte, Sapphire as well as the Tyan cards have been getting some good reviews.

Just do bear in mind not to accidentally purchase the Non-Pro 9500, as there is generally somewhat of a huge performance difference between the two (reduced texture pipelines) - especially on some online sites.
