Was ready to buy ATI 9600 card. Just read latest on Tom's, now not sure whether to go for 5600 instead. Editor's choice of MSI VDTR128 - runs at 325mhz, sounds like nice card, about same price as an ATI 9600 which is faster. But which performs better? Suggestions appreciated.
Well I DO HAVE experience with the R9600(<b>PRO</b>), and I'd say that IT'S a SWEET card.
However there is a LIMITED amount of info out there about the R9600. There is ONE review I know of (I don't keep too many R9600NON-PRO Benchies bookmarked), it's the <A HREF="http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NDgz" target="_new">Gigacube Review</A> I've posted before. Be sure to read the whole thing and see WHICH version of the R9600non-pro to compare to the Gicacube one in the Review. The R9600non-pro and FX5600non-U seems to trade some scores. About equal depending on what you play, and will likely come down to price.
