    the ati any day. i have the 9600xt 256mb. cost me $171 shipped on newegg.com. highly recommended!
    i had the geforcefx 5200. biggest pile of crap you can buy. STAY AWAY.
    the new geforces are garbage. finally ATI is back in lead of the market.
    here's some info you need to look at to prove it:

    i went with the ati because of many recommendations on counterstrike gaming forums.
    you need to read more than just memory size on a video card. look at memory clock, processor clock, pixel pipelines, etc.

    ATI is great because their framerates are consistent in different resolutions. The best geforce will have badass framerate at low res. , but will dramatically decrease a res goes up. ATI pwns y0!

    ATI is def better, get the ALL-IN-WONDER though. I just got one about a week about and its badass. replaced the old geforce 4 shit with it. Pain in the ass to install. NOTE: If your gonna install this make sure you have 2-3hrs on your hands

    it shouldn't take that long to install. i wish i would've bought the 9600xt all in wonder, but i went with just the plain video card and then then ati tv wonder ve. total install time was well under 30 minutes, including opening the case, installing drivers, and software setup.

    Thanks for the info.

    All the guys & girls at work say I should with an ATI card. My brother said stick with ASUS ATI Radeon verson. The card is in the $130 Cdn range which isn't too bad.


    What I was thinking about getting is :

    ASUS A7V600
    XP2500 or XP2600 cpu (god these things are cheap)
    and now
    ASUS ATI Radeon 9600SE

    thanks for the info
