What are you dribbling about? The benchmarks are extremely dissapointing and don't beat the 8800GTS. And the fact that it was hyped by ATi into oblivion coupled with the fact that it is more expensive than Nvidia's card, I must conclude that you have no idea what you're talking about.

Meh, I don't game, so you'll never see me with those cards. I'd prefer All-In_Wonder, where I can put a TV Tuner or something else in it.

I'll stick with my X1300. If the 9600 has equivalency of a 9600, then the X1300 would be a 9800.

TV Tuners are my look now.

Meh, the way I choose my cards is how it suits me. If I can get an 8300GT or whatever it's named, I'll get it, but it has to be cheaper than a X1300 or around 25-35 bucks more.
