I've got the radeon 9500 pro which uses the same chip and architecture as the 9700 pro just at a lower clock rate. It's an awesome card. Got mine for 169 shipped. Hangs with the ti 4600's and 4800's. Plus it's quiet as hell, the new geforce4 cards are loud.

The best card out there right now would probably be the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256MB 8x AGP. Granted that will set you back BIG time, but if you wan the best, you pay for the best. IMO, I'd recommend the 9700.
