    Hello.

    I have decided to swap my Geforce 4 Ti 4200 for a Radeon card as they seem to offer more flexibility and compatibility with a HCPC. I would like to keep some speed for 3D game performance, so I have narrowed my choice down to the 9500 pro, the 9700 and the 9700 pro. I have looked at the features offered by the AIW cards, but they only seem to be able to drive 1 monitor, and I would like 2 connections. I have looked on Ebuyer, but can anyone suggest a better place (cheaper) to get one from. Also, are there any know issues with any of the cards named above, such as driver instability? If anyone has had good/bad experiences with these cards, please tell me.

    Cheers

    Rob

    Try www.theoverclockingstore.co.uk . Order the 9500 not pro and try the soft3ware hack to enable the extra pipelines to give it 9700 performance, it worked for me!:D
