    They perform around the same, the 5700 Ultra has the edge in older games while 9600XT has the edge in newer games, with better Pixel Shader 2.0 performance. I would go 9600XT just plainly cause it comes with HL2, which is nice $50 bonus.

    :confused: So which one is actually better? i checked a buncha other forums and they gave it their 2 thumbs up... they say its good for games like max payne 2 and call of duty, but most importantly i "need" it to work for Doom3, and WELL. at least in the 70's. So which one should i get... Wanna get a couple more responses.. b4 i decide???????????:rofl: or may b i should just wait until doom 3 actually comes out and then i can buy another one. so which card would b a good card to buy until then?

    That's what you should do. Just wait. If you really have to get a card now, but are just going to upgrade later on anyway, just get the cheaper of the two.
