Currently best buy is having a thxgiving sale (as meny of us now know), and after all the rebates the Radeon 9600 regular is only 70$ as opposed to its normal price of 169$.
The Radeon 9600 Pro is currently 182$ on amazon.
Is the Radeon regular much worse then the Radeon pro? Would i be able to run games like BF1942 and Splinter Cell under med or high graphics 1000+ resolution?
I am running a 1800g 512 meg ram comp.
Basically, should i buy the card now and take advantage of the price, but not get the pro? or should i hold off?
Radeon 9600 Comparison Chart According to this chart the 9600 reg has a much lower engine and memory clock rate, how much will this affect gameplay? Can the card be significantly overclocked?
PS if i buy this card now, i wont be able to get another one for at least a year, so will the 9600 regular be able to last that long (keep up with the most part of the games)??
The sale ends in about 24 hrs, so reply quickly plz
