Meh, kinda equal, but I guess I'd go with the 9600 PRO. Won't see much of a difference either way, so it doesn't really matter.

Nope, they will still run the same. And good choice, IMO that board is the best s939 board out (at least until SLI boards start mass production).

Wait, if he has an nVidia chipset, there will be a slight advantage to the nVidia card (aka, driver conflicts) I would go with the 5700LE (you can overclock it more) AIdo agree though, NICE MOBO!

Would the Asus card be able to run something like Doom 3 or Half Life 2? I sure it could run it but at what type of settings?

So then I would still probably be better off going with an GeForce 6800 with 128 then the Asus listed above?
