    NON PRO = 4 Pipelines (has 8 but they are locked)

    PRO = 8 Pipelines, higher clock speeds

    Which means right off the bat the Pro is a lot faster.

    Well, good luck finding a 9500 (Pro or non pro); they are becoming more and more scarce, and if you find one you'll probably have to pay a little more for it if/when you find one. It's too bad too, cause they were like a littke 9700 w/ a little less performance that could be taken back by o/cing, but oh well, I guess they were too expensive for Ati to produce. The new 9600 Pro is not a bad card tho. Retail it's about $160usd, 400mhz (very fast) GPU clock and 600mhz RAM clock (still not bad) with DX 9 support and loads of new features (all 2.0 programs I think). THe only down side is it only has 4 pipelines, but I think it'll still be a great card for your son's comp. The problem is, DX 8 cards arent that great in DX 9 games. My Ti4200, although I cant remember the numbers, would only run Splinter Cell in 1024 x 768 and high detail (not very high). The game was playable (30-40fps), but a DX 9 card could easily run the detail in very high and get 60fps. The software just isnt compatible with the older hardware. Anyways, def look into the 9600 pro, in a few months, I wouldnt be surprised if it replaced the Ti4200 as the best "bang for your buck" card. Anyways, cheers and good luck, : peace2: Mista K6

    Newegg has the Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9600 PRO for $153, it is the card I always recommend for the midrange. It will be a bit slower than the GF4 Ti's but it can be clocked up quite a bit and supports DX9 which means it will have a lot better future compatibility.
