Thread: Ati Radeon 9600

  1. #1
    Right now both cards are around the same cost (pro about 10 $ less) and the XT comes with a voucher for HL2 when it comes out. Im really looking forward to a good card and HL2 is a definet plus (looks awesome from the latest movie)

    I havnt realli heard much about the XT version although it does have quicker clockspeed and seems generally better, i want to know what some people who ahve the card think.

    Do u people recommend the card, is it easy to install? and is it compatible with most games?

    the Xt will play virtually any game you ask it too, the pro will to i believe
    Here is the card i just bought, it's a monster, 500Mhz core speed! very nice card
    where are you from? If you are from Nova Scotia or at least canada you may want to chek out Greenlyph, they have the Saphire 9600XT Retail for $225 CAD
    Hope this helps

    if its a 10$diff then definately go for the xt

    if there is like a30-70$ diff then buy the 9600pro and overclock it to match the XT

    PRO: 400/600
    XT: 500/600

    radeons can easily overclock 100 for the core

    haha yeah thats not a bad card, but how much??
    me, i prefer Radeon, but thats my opinon, nVidia has its advantages i guess too, there is the poll on that called "Graphics Cards" if you wanna read some peoples oppinions.
    Did you see the card I got? what do you think? comes with HL2 too

    219 is actually a very nice price for that card, mine was 260 plus tax, free shipping, but thats a deal a buddy got me
    as far as i remember the 9600XT outpreformed the 9800se in benchmarks, the 9800se is somewhat a budget card i believe, i will try to find those benchmarks if you give me a minute though

    EDIT take a look here and it may change your opinions on the 9800se
