    Which ATI Radeon 9600 does the best performance for it's money.

    I mean, there are several ATI radeon 9600 (XT, pro, .. etc).
    Which one is the best for it's money.

    I'm planing to upgrade soon from my GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 to a ATI 9600.

    To do what?
    for any serious gaming, get the XT
    if it's just for straight work (typing, and regular tasks) then the regular 9600 would work fine, or even the se version for a lot cheaper
    It depends on which one suits your needs best.
    Q6600 @ 3.42Ghz | Gigabyte EP35-DS3R | EVGA 8800GT 721/1802/2006 w/ Accelero S1 | 4gb Crucial DDR2 @ 760mhz | 750gb Hitachi 7k1000 | Corsair 520HX | 2 x Samsung SyncMaster T240 24" | Windows 7 Ultimate

    Yeah man...
    My friend has 9600SE and can run warcraft3 with ease.
    I have Ti4200 128M and I can play all the highend games.

    i got the 9600pro.

    i chose it cos i had 108 to spend, and this (101 inc tax) seemed the best performance-wise that i could afford. i can play halo with all the settings on "omg pwnage". and it&#39;ll do farcry on medium (a little bit higher than medium really cos ive been tweaking the shadows and it still works ive yet to play with anything else).

    i think i read somewhere that it&#39;ll run doom III and half life2 on medium at 800x600

    I got the 9600XT while it was on sale during christmas, it was 100&#036;, i think thats a pretty good price, cuz at that time it also came with a voucher for HL2. I think they recently withdrew that voucher though

    I can run Warcraft 3 on 1024x768 with everything on high/medium with my GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 64 MB.

    The 9600 128 MB could wipe the floor with my Gf 2, you know what I mean.

    I&#39;m not a hardcore gamer, but I like playing games, but it depends on my mood.
    I will be gaming more (for sure) when HL 2, GTA: SA and World Of Warcraft hit the market

    for my needs the 9600 would do it.i will see if I (my dad actualy) can afford a 9600 Pro or XT.

    I need to upgrade my ram too, which will be an expensive task too because I have RDRAM (256 MB )

    RDRAM is twice as expensive as DDR, if not more.

    128 MB RDRAM = &#036;60 (cheapest RDRAM; PC800 ; speed 450 MHz)
    256 MB DDR = &#036;65 (very good DDR RAM; speed: 400 MHz)

    See the difference &#33;

    man, I need MONEY MONEY MONEY

    Pentium 4 (1800 MHz) , 256 RDRAM (Rambus RAM; PC800 @ 450 MHz), GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 64 MB

    It only slows sometimes a little bit down when there&#39;s a realy huge battle going on.

    EDIT: You want some screenshots ?

    Hey, I don&#39;t think screenshots are necessary, if anyone is to hardcore not to take your word for it they need some help lol
    Although, you may wanna take some screenshots now and then take some after you get your new card, just to see the difference. For no one else but yourself.
