It looks like a decent card. I haven't heard much about info-tek though, that could be good or bad depending on how you look at it. The reviews all seem to give it a thumbs up, I would buy it if you like the price.

They're good cards, Info Tech is just the manufacturer of the physical CARD, the chipset is made by ATI so you are really purchasing an ATI Card. I'd go for it!!

Never heard of the OEM, but the 9600XT are fine cards

Only other cards around range might be a 5700 Ultra.....dunno about the price, and I think the 9600XT's are abit faster

I think you may be able to get a 5700 ultra for like $175? I'm not a hundred percent sure. Heres' the 5700 for $159 but its not the Ultra version. eVGA didn't have a 5700 Ultra listed on this site:

I'd get a better manufacturer than Info Tek, never heard of them and if something were to happen to your card you'd want good manufacturer tech support =) I've heard nothing but good stuff from eVGA cards so thats my next purchase
