I've looked on the forums here, and I haven't seen this anywhere. If it was discused, a link there would be great.
I was looking on Pricewatch, and I noticed 4 different types of 9600's on there.

RADEON 9600 Pro Ultra
RADEON 9600 Pro Ultimate
RADEON 9600 Pro
RADEON 9600

Does anyone know what the difference is between all of these? I have an idea of the pro-nopro differences, but whats with this ultimate and ultra stuff?

I think the only difference is the clock speed and maybe how far the card could be overclocked.

Shuttle SN45G
AXP 2500+
Corsair DDR400 512mb
Apollo Radeon 9600 Pro
WD 160GB HDD
Toshiba DVDR

First off, Anything with ULTRA and Ultimate = GigaCube. Stay AWAY!

There are alot of differeneces, look <A HREF="http://" target="_new">HERE</A> for a list. Stay away from anything with TSOP or Hynix memory (it appears the GC are even slow Samsung for thier BEST boards, mine's 2.86ns and the best GC is 3.3ns, and the lesser GCs are 4ns TSOP) modules, they don't OC worth crap!

Check out <A HREF="http://www.overclockers.co.nz/ocnz/review.php?id=03vga0..." target="_new">THIS</A> article it should give you more insight.

Try and stick with Sapphire (although they also tend to have the 3.3ns BGA on their Pro card and not the 2.86ns), Creative, Hercules (my fav. but rare/more expensive), GigaBYTE, and Built by ATI cards (like mine).
The best being Herc, ATI, and Gigabyte.

For 9600 PRO The ATI card is better than Sapphire?

From the results I've seen elsewhere, they don't clock nearly as high. Sapphire will likely run even with the ATI at STOCK speeds, but for OC'ing the Sapphires appear to have less headroom, some boards receiving the cheaper/slower 3.3 memory which WILL run at 300mhz, but not much above that.
