Hi,
I know it´s always the same [-peep-], but can`t find any reviews on powercolour 9600pro. I read stuff about vga, so know what chip is best for my money : ati 9600 pro,duh , but I´m forced to buy computer from a shop ´cause of personal reasons, and the only 9600 pro they have is from powercolour (don`t know which one yet, get to know soon). I´m a gamer, but not into clocking, don´t care about software or looks, just quality and price. Is the card worth it or should I go for the 5600 ultra ( dunno make either) . Both are around the same price here, 120 euros ( am in spain, so no dollars here), and have 128 mb (dunno what speed). I know the bravo edition is alright, but just want to know about the rest of the powercolour 9600 pro´s, in case I can´t get the bravo
thanks

Powercolor is not the best made cards but are OK for the price in some cases.

If the computer shop you're considering buying it from will replace it no questions if it goes bad, it might be worth considering.

But if you have a choice, buy Sapphire, Ati, or Hercules.

I don't like Powercolor at all. Perhaps the R9600XT Bravo wil change that when it comes out, but I will still not trust them.

Here's some links;

R9600P Bravo:

R9600P EZ 256mb (Sucks TSOP memory)
<A HREF="http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/radeon/pcolor-1.html" target="_new">http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/radeon/pcolor-1.html</A>

I can only find those two types. The Pro EZ and the Pro BRAVO. The PRO EZ is CRAP, and not a true pro. The Bravo seems to be OK exceeding the normal pro in specs.

BTW, never go for an FX5600U when you can get a 'true' R9600Pro.

So either get the bravo or keep looking for another maker IMO.

thanx u guys, have read the reviews, know what there is, so I know the 9600 EZ is not a proper 9600 pro, but have no other 9600 pro to choose from. Its either this one or a 5600 ultra, so I know the EZ has got [-peep-] up memory and all, but is it that crap??
thanx

Actually, im not quite sure why powercolour and gexcube (gigapuke =x)
sucks. i own the powercolour r9600p and its performing quite up to my expectations... i even got the 2.8ns samsung ram! (just found out). Anyone had bad expriences to share about these two companys other than the ones mentioned?

Who is from singapore? I am.
