In tests with aa & fs inabled the 9600 cant hang
in a standard test its only a few fps faster than the 9500Pro
The fillrate & Piplines are 2x as much on the 9500 Pro
the 9600 might oc well but Stock preformance is the mesure wich i would stand on I was gona buy one of these 9600 but Not now

I think Ill hold out for that FIC 9700

yeah the hardocp review said the same as toms did and produced about the same resaults. Would like to see the benches with it overclocked. But HardOcp said they could not move it even 1mhz. But they say ATI said its not clock locked so guess just have to wait till a tweak utility comes to fix that. But good choice get the 9700 you will be very happy I love my Hecules 9700 pro and im sure you'll love your FIC

ya I seen that in another post it does look like a nice card
they said the got 50% preformance boost by ocing it I guess it would kick some but then

But in my Limited experiance ocing vid cards it alwayes seems that other people get the cards that oc like mad & I never do LOL so I gota go with stock preformance to start with & if it oc;s a bit then thats great but if not then @ least Ill have what I know I paid for

I know I know Cardnal sin to dump on Ocing Im not realy tho as u can see everything In my system is oced to some degre :)

Hey I made a rhym heh heh
