    I bought a sapphire 9600 PRO from newegg.com for about 150 bucks. Thought it was a great card to go with my 19" NEC/mistubishi 930sb... or so i thought. Then I turned on my comp one day to a horrible grinding sound. The cooling fan had gone bad. Sapphire offered me nothing for the card but a referal to whomever I had purchased the card from. Of corse newegg was awesome and payed for me to ship the card back to them and refunded my money and that was after 3 months. I bought an ATI brand 9800 Pro and ill never deviate from ATI again (unless for Asus).

    I have a new Sapphire 9600xt 256, runs very fast and stable my system is oc to 3.06 on a P4 2.4B and if I use the oc on the 4.1 drivers the 9600xt goes from 499 to 526 rock solid stable (more room to oc there).:thumb:



    Edit: Sig out of date must update it!

    Yeah, both are gret cards. I own the Sapphire 9600XT(580/640<340 DDR) and I love it. But I would get the Asus if you weren't on a budget..as the Sapphire 9600XT doesn't have a heat sensor:(
