I am going to be building a computer for my dad but he doesn't want to do any overclocking. I was wondering if the Radeon 9600p, Radeon 9800 non-pro or the GeforceFX 5600 ultra would be a better card? I want to make sure he has DX9 compatability. Any suggestions? he plays some 3d games but mostly office apps. if the 5600 is a better choice for him which make should i get?

Thanks for anyone able to help me

Radeon 9800np gets my vote. GeForce 5600Ultra gets negative votes.

Damn Rambus.

Either ATI would be better than the FX.

The R9600Pro is likely the best compromise of price and game play. But if the R9800non-pro and the R9600Pro are equal in price then definitely go with the R9800non-pro, just be sure it's a non-pro and not an SE, and if it were an SE make dang sure it's a 256bit (not 256mb, but 256bit) memory version.

But that's just my two frames worth.

definitely the 9600p or 9800np, 5600 has had alot of probs and bad reviews.

i agree with ape if you can get a 9800np for 9600p price go ahead, be wary of the se though
