    or

    Here's the official Specs for the Official Retail ATI Radeon 9600 pro card: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?...-102-276&DEPA=1
    Compare the specs of those 2 cards to this one.

    btw the 9600 pro only has 4 pixel piplelines.. 9500 pro has 8 for some reason.. benchmark scores are higher on 9500 pro, but the price is also higher.. strange huh?

    they ushally cost more cause of the brand.
    Like.. Store#1&#39;s orange juice costs &#036;3 more than Store#2. They both taste the same though.

    it&#39;s true. compare a ford to a mercedes. theres a huge quality, speed, look, design, comfort, and everything difference. expensive is better, but cheaper is better, if u can find a good deal

    notice that he&#39;s asking about a 9600 Pro vs a 9600 Non-Pro. rule of thumb = in the case of ATI, Pro&#39;s are better than non-Pro&#39;s.
