    At $200 you can get a 9700 non pro. The 9600XT will also be $199 and they say it will be faster, but I don't see how that is possible with only 4 pipelines. We will have to see when the reviews come in.

    If you're talking about the 9600, you do NOT want the non pro. It will never reach Pro speeds.

    Sapphire 9600 Pro $150

    www.newegg.com

    Or a 9700 non pro. The 9700 will be faster.

    I wouldnt go for 9600 to be honest (unless you wait untill XT comes out), thats why i would suggest 9700.

    If you can squeeze out just a little more $$ (eg. wait a little bit), i would go for 9700 pro.

    For $250 you can get a 9700 Pro.....for $200 you can get a non pro.

    Yah, cheers to the 9700Pro, Ati really flubbed up on the 9600 Pro and only giving it 4 pipelines. The 9700 Pro is a little harder to find, as they dont make the 9700 series anymore, but it's not impossible. They are a suberb card for the price, def a good investment. Good luck getting one, : peace2: Mista K6
