Hey. This is a post directed at anyone who is looking for a new graphics card but DOESNT want to spend over $200.
* ATI Radeon 9500Pro
Some people believe that the 9600Pro or 9600XT is better. WRONG. The 9500Pro offers the feature of 8 Pixel-Pipelines. Only the 9500, 9700, and 9800 series offer this. The 9600 series only has 4 Pixel-Pipelines which greatly cuts down on the bandwidth of data. Here are a few pictures to prove that the 9500 whoops the 9600 series!
Here is the 9500Pro with MAX resolution and all filtering ALL the way up. This is running BF 1942!!!
Here it is again with max resolution and all filtering all the way up. This is compared with other cards.
Check out the whole article on this card if you want to. Be sure too look at the high resolution with lots of filtering because thats where this card is AWESOME, and thats what we want now..isnt it!

As you can see this card is one AMAZING card and is the same price as the 9600XT. Get it soon if you want it as they no longer make them! I just ordered mine! They are $190 on newegg.com. Heres the link http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc....ro&searchdepa=1
