2 Quewstions in 1 thread:

First question:

What is the difference between these two (other than one number is higher than the other)?
How does the bit of memory affect the performance?

Second question:

Does anyone know the best memory timings to set for ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128-bit/ 128 MB?
And what are the best GPU core speeds and Memory speeds for this card that you overclock to?

There's no 256bit version of 9600Pro. It's often used in high end video cards. About the difference, it can go up to double performance compared to a 128bit card(9800SE 128bit->9800XT performance).

The best OC speeds to me 500core/600memory, exactly the 9600XT speeds.
