a rock would be good for under 100 bucks =p.. you're not going to find or get anything "good" for under 100 bucks.. how about waiting till the end of the year, then the 9600's will be down even more, you can get one of those, it'll be alright, but still not good.

I wouldnt get that card either. Go for either 9800 Pro or 9600 XT if its in your budget.

That is not a bad card at all, better than a 9600. Also, i heard you can softmod it to a 9700 Pro.

No, the 9550 and the 9500 are totally different cards, get a reg 9600 at least, trust me on this one.
