    As far as I know the R9500 is the cheapest DX9 card and the non Pro version is around the same as the lower range GF4 Ti4200's and the Pro a bit faster than the upper range GF4 Ti4200's.

    I also compared them in this review of the Sapphire brand Radeon 9500 Pro.

    i've read your comparison Darth and i believe that the 8 pixel line is a must have compared to the Nvidia's 4.
    i read some magazine that strongly recommended the Pro version over the non-pro just because of this.
    And is Sapphire Russian made? 'cos if it is i can get one for almost peanuts here in Turkey.

    Looks like their headquarters are located in Hong Kong, but they have branch offices in Canada, the US, Germany and the UK. And yes, I always recommend the Pro version. The non-Pro models are like having a Ti4200 card.
