I have a NVida GeForce3 card. Which ATI cards currently available
would be a substantial upgrade? Is the 9600 XT a big upgrade for
games?

Yes, although it may depend on the rest of your system.

Which says more about your configuration skills or lack of same than about
the product.

Well it was a major upgrade when I went from a 4400 to a 9700 Pro, so
you are obviously clueless.

I was going to say. Literacy first, then read some books about PC's.

I have both cards and would disagree. The 9600XT is a BIG improvement over
the GF3ti200 in games.

I agree that a 9600XT is a big improvement over GF3 (I have both cards plus
a GF4 ti4200x8). But only if you have a cpu that can use the extra power.
To really see the difference you need a least 1.5 ghz. My 9600XT easily
beats my GF4 (which in turn beats the GF3) on my Athlon2400+ with Nforce2.

I jumped from a plain old GeForce3 64MB to a 9800Pro for £124 and the
difference is fantastic.
