  1. Thats like asking if a pizza without extra cheeze is better than without it.

    Of course there is a difference.. 128 bit of a difference.

    Ok really, yes there is a difference. The "speed" of the card is alot faster with higher bitage. (lol bitage)

  2. Well, that's it... the memory interface is the difference.

    But that memory interface allows the 9700 to have twice the usable bandwidth of a 9500 PRO. It can access it's memory twice as fast, which has a huge impact on performance.
