    the price does look about right, but you could if you wanted get a 9550 and Overclock it to 9600 speeds because they're basically the same thing.

    looks pretty good for a 9600PRO has decent RAM on it by the looks of it

    aha, I see. I knew they used cheaper RAM on the 9550 but I didn't know it was in a different format.

    looks promising just check the numbers on the RAM chips and look them up on the site here 3.3ns or better and your lookin good for XT speeds

    Even if you can't hit XT speeds, you'll get damn close.
