If all goes well, I will be getting a 9700pro soon. The question is, how much is my having a Athlon XP 1600+ going to affect my performance with this card? I'd like to upgrade my CPU by it just isn't going to happen in the next few months.

Don't worry too much about it, the 9700pro should be okay. I've had a 1700+ with a 9800pro, and it didn't hurt my performance.

dont worry the performance difference between your crappy Gf4MX and the 9700 will be huge.
