What are the main differences between the Ati 9500 pro 128mb versus the 9700 non pro (tx version from dell)? I read through some of the benchmarks and seems that the non pro 9700 still beats out the 9500 pro. Just wondering if someone of you experts can chime in with some opinions and/or experiences with the cards.

Tahe a look at this site for the technical differences.

The main thing, 128 vs 256 bit memory; meaning twice the memory bandwidth at the same clock.

THe TX from dell is clocked at 263/263, while the actual R9700 non pro is clocked at 275/270. It will make a difference, but not much. IMO the R9700 TX from Dell is a very good deal, cause you only add like $120USD.. which is a lot better than the add $300 for the Pro. The other 2 cards are basically very low end, so the TX is a good choice.
