    If your talking $200 in US dollars than you get can a Sapphire ATi Radeon 9800pro 128mb at Newegg.com for just under $210

    Nothing to even think about protesting, for 200$ the 9800 pro is your best buy.

    wonder if that would be better or getting the 9600 xt I believe that comes with like 256 memory.

    To further that thought, 256MB of memory only helps in very few applications, and usually only in certain aspects of them. Having a faster card will help more. You shouldn't try to get a card with 256MB unless you're already looking at a high-end card like a X800, which will already come with 256MBs (I don't think there are or will be 128MB versions, none at Newegg).

    Also, to clarify, not all 9600XTs come with 256MBs of memory. However, ones that do will be very close in price to 9800 Pros with 128MBs of memory.

    Basically, yeah, that's just a stupid idea.
