"Despite what you think, the stock 9600XT speeds are 500/600, so your increase isn't anything to brag about, the thing is, if the x800pro was clocked at 400/500, it would still own your 9600XT, just like with processors, clock speed isn't everything."
umm, no one is bragging, I dont find the need to brag about computer parts..
I was merely asking him why his overdrive only goes to 525mhz when the 9600 xt's overdrive does the same..
it is obvious that a 550.00 dollar card would smoke a 140 dollar card.. if it wouldnt, your getting ripped off.
