    Just for your info ...... CircuitCity has the BBA 9800 NP onsale this week on sale for $199 :D .
    The sale started earlier this week but can not be purchased online ; you must go INSTORE to purchase . There's a good chance they are sold out by now , so you may have to do a price match at a BB or Compusa , etc . LINKY

    No actually the 9600xt is a better card then the 9500pro, because it beats the 9500pro in all tests.

    I think that the pair of ya are gettin' carried away over nothin' (read what the thread is about). There is very little difference between the R9500P and R9600XT but price wise the R9600XT is the cheaper card and better only if ya play at lower resolutions but if ya play at 1600x1200 then the R9500P is the way to go. Also remember that the R9600XT is basically an overclocked Pro, overclockin' an R9500P will get close to R9700 performance so why are ya's squabblin' over a few frames here and there? :?:

    The main fact is that the R9800np is faster than the R9500P.

    Wiggo... I made a comment that he misread the charts about America's Army, how is that squabbling? I could care about either card, I'm just trying to make sure the correct info is presented. Ah well, its over anyways, stick with the 9800 NP, it is def faster. : peace2: Mista K6

    Well if it helps the 9500pro costs more and doesn't win on stock settings, the 9600's also perform better in dx9. My 9600pro is scoring scores the same as a 9700pro.

    Your R9600P scores as well as a an R9700P, even overclocked I'd have to see that to even believe it (even reviews don't get close). :rolleyes2
