    I had a similar decision to make like you. I am going to buy an AGP graphics card. I couldn't decide whether to get an ATi 9600 XT 128MB, or a GeforceFX 5600 128MB. The people who were guiding me on what to buy said, that the geforce fx cards performed poorly with directx 9, where as the ATi cards run smoothly when running on directx. I am going to buy the ATi 9600 XT 128MB out of the two choices. Here is a quote that someone has said after they bought a

    CONNECT 3D ATI RADEON 9600 PRO 128MB AGP GRAPHICS CARD


    This person says that this card beats the fx5900 never mind the fx5600. Also the ATi card being used is the PRO and not the XT. There is not too much difference between the PRO and XT.

    But the point here is that ATi 9600 Pro is said to be better than Geforce FX Cards.

    The review is off this site if you wanna check it out
