    I just traded my Radeon 9500 Pro for a Sapphire 9500 Pro. Scores are same at stock speeds (within single digit numbers on 3DMark01SE). The only difference I see is the memory... Radeon had 3.0ns Infineon memory and Sapphire has 3.3 ns.

    but sont forget that 9700 pro or non p, have 256 bit mem bandwidth which is twice of that Radeon 9500 pro at 128 bit, other that that i believe the cards are identical in architecture.
    this makes a good deal difference if the game really is huge, like doom3.
    the crappy 9500 has 4 pixel shaders whereas 9500 pro and 9700 p&np all have 8.
    (all GF4 tis have 4 pixel shaders and 128bit mbw)

    You are right, but I still think that the 9500 is the best budget card out there for under $200. Nothing will sway my opinion. Oh yeah, and like how can you compare a new card to an older one, eh?:laugh:

    i like both 9500s, preferably the pro, they have full dx9 support first of all, and i agree that compared to ti4200 or ti4400 these are the right cards to choose.
    i just wanted to point out that maybe u will pay a 30-40 bucks more for the 9500 pro compared to 9500, but it will last that little bit longer and enable you better aa,af performance in playing current games.
