I'd go fo rthe R9700 non pro, but MAKE SURE you egt good RAM on this board. I understand some Crucial or PowerColor boards are going out w/ some poorly ratd RAM... Some folks get the same 2.8ns RAM on their non-pro R9700's are simply clock up to and beyong R9700PRO speeds.

Kinda off subject a bit but a recommendation. If you want to o/c it. I did thisd, I took off the heat sink and removed the yellow goopy crap and replaced it with artic thermal. I also replace the heat sink wth a copper heatsink and added a slightly larger fan. It is running a lot cooler then stock. I also though still need ot do a vbios update in which I am scred to do...

Get the 9700np. Performs better out of the box and can be o/ced later. But if you don't want to spend the money, go with the 9500pro. 9600pro should be a last choice of the three IMHO. Eventhough its a good performer, it doesn't do so well against the 9500pro, let alone the 9700np.

To sum it up, if you have the money and don't mind paying for the 9700np, go for that one. The FIC 9700np at newegg.com was a good one, but I think its out of stock.
