    Hi. I'm very confused about to decide which one :confused:

    The importing things for me are ; I want to have very stable TV-Out and of course I want to play games at a high level with 2x or 4x AA.
    Ofcourse I wish to buy X800 but it's a little expensive :)

    So I decided to buy Powercolor Ati 9600XT or Powercolor 9800SE. Which one is better ?

    I'm not sure about to find a 9800SE that becomes 9800 PRO, maybe ! And I read that it's a big risk, some of them become 9800 PRO with no problems but some of them have a lot problems after the upgrade.

    So which one, 9600 XT or 9800SE ???

    SE, you can always OC it without unlocking the pipes.
    Also, it got 2 more shaders.
    And you CAN always try the softmod:)

    watch out that it is an L-shaped ram! Because else it is 128-bit = :(

    Try and get one with L shape memory, as that means that it is 256 Bit and more benefits to softmodding.
