Is this really a question. Without any dought 9600XT. Why would you want to waste the same amount of money on a card the isn't fully DirectX9 (Nvidia only runs on Half Duplex).

It's not a 9800 XT, it's a 9600 XT. His choice is between the slightly older variant of the top-line nVidia card, or the high mem version of the midrange Radeon card. This one, I am not sure of. I think with newer drivers you might come out better with the 5900 Ultra, actually.

Age and treachery will defeat youth and skill every time.

Me to. 9600xt is great card but it´s in category with 5700. 5900 is high-end card (9800xt).

I just asked one guy on pcekspert and he told me that 5900 with "lower" memory is better then 9600 with high memory.

Anyone have any reason why should I buy 9600?

The 5900 is a lot better than the 9600XT!!!
Because the GeForce 5900 is as good as a Radeon 9800. The Radeon 9600 XT is a better version of the Radeon 9600 Pro!!!
That´s a lot worse than the Radeon 9800!!!
Normally the GeForce 5900 is 20 percent better than the Radeon 9600XT. I have a GeForce 5900, and I can play everything. My friend has a lot of problems with his Radeon 9600 XT.
Yeah, like I said, buy the GeForce 5900 or wait a few months (PCI-Express, NV40, R420 etc.)!!!!!!!!!!

The MSI one is the best. That's the one I have. Their cooling unit is perfectly quiet and does a great job of keeping the card stable during overclocking.

I heard that too from pcstats: "The only way we could hear the videocard was if we put our ear right next to fan, and even then it was very faint."

Did you overcloacked it?
