im looking around for an inexpensive videocard, between 200-300 canadian, anyways, any recomendations?

my first thought is a saphire 9500pro (oem, but it appears to have all the same specs as the retail, just none of the software)

ive also considered a 9600pro, but it seems to be slower and in my area more expensive

any reason i should consider an FX card like the 5600ultra, id pretty much discounted them cause they seem to perform rather poorly

the 9500 pro 128mb will do fine around $230 for mainstream gaming.

i play lots of games, battlefield, freelancer, numerous shooters old and new

i mupgrading from a gf3 ti500, so is it really worth the upgrade do you think? or should i wait another product cycle and get the next midrange card?
