Summary: INTRODUCTION I've had my Radeon 9600 Pro graphics card since 2005, and the card has been with me through 3 PCs! This introductory sentence should tell you two things straight away. First of all, this is not a brand new graphics card, and second of all, it is a reliable and rock solid card!
Pros: Rock solid graphics card for those still using a motherboard with AGP slot
Cons: Most will now be using a motherboard with PCI-E slots and no AGP slots
Summary: This is an excellent graphics card, however, i don't think alot of people are looking at this card with the long term in mind. This card currently performs slightly slower then the Radeon 9500P, in most tests. I say "most" tests because it does out perform the R9500P in some cases. The card averages out to be fairly even with the Radeon 9500P overall. I think this card at later dates will pull ahead of the Radeon 9500P with newer drivers and future games.
Pros: Price/value for money, Great for Gaming/Image Quality, High Performance
