This is a card I'm looking at buying, [URL=http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.html?i=1756]Anandtech will get you in the know[/URL] of its features and performance:

ATI has started shipping their Radeon 9500 Pro for arrival in retail in the coming weeks. The final card looks different, uses new memory and when coupled with a new driver is much faster than before...

If ATI can indeed get their Radeon 9500 Pro cards out in quantity before the end of the year they will have at least a 2 month lead on NVIDIA. Putting pressure on NVIDIA in this ~$200 market segment combined with their uncontested Radeon 9700 Pro, ATI has truly proven their ability to deliver on promises - a welcome change from the ATI we saw during the days of the 8500.
