it was worth 60$.

if you are a hardcore gamer, i would check into something like a 9800SE, but if you dont REALLY care about stats, it will do you fine, IMO.

josh, i beg to differ, as i have a 9800se, and it works GREAT for me, i have never used a 9600 xt though
the 9800 has a faster fillrate, a larger pipeline, and it does all that with a lower clock speed, i dont see how having "XT" on the 9600 is supposed to make it better.

check the reviews and bench marks... it is just like the the old geforce MX rather than the normal version... they are slimmed down version of the good card as a marketing ploy

This reminds me ... I need to place my order for my new card and monitor from Dell ...

20" flatpanel, 1600x1200 native. Radeon 9600XT.

All I'll need then is the rest of the computer to go with it That'll have to wait until A: I get my tax return back ... should be fairly soon. Or B: I sell my laptop (hint, hint!)

I measured the available space on my desk ... in the fully compressed landscape mode (it has a telescoping stand) ... this monitor will just about fill the top to bottom space. That shit makes me hard just thinking about it And it has composite, component, and svideo inputs ... so I can hook up my game systems for their progressive scan modes.

Not as cool as the widescreen HDTV lcd tv I was going to get, but it's only slightly smaller (20" vs 23"), has higher resolution, and is less than half the price. Hmm... gee.

I've got an ASUS 9600xt w/ vivo header; great performer/value card. Highly recommend it.

Would the card I mentioned above be sufficient for most games? Please take in mind I rarely play games on my computer, but mostly just watch videos..

I bet it will play Doom III! (probably not perfectly.. but it will play it) in other words... yes.. you can play most (if not all) games on the market today.

the 9600 pro has a 4 pixel pipeline, the 9800 has 8, explain how you overclock that

the 9800 is also a 256 bit interface whereas your 9600 is a 128.

the fillrate is roughly twice on the 9800.
