Hello,

I know Asus is well known for its NVIDIA cards. But how about Asus Radeon 9600 SE and XT? Which one is more worthy and which one has better performance? Can the Asus Radeon 9600 cards compared to ATI and other brands of Radeon card?

Generally it goes something like:

Sucky Edition
Non-Pro
Pro
Extreme

Some SE products are pretty slick. Others reek. Generally unless you know it to be a hell of a good product assume SE is marketing speak for something that failed several levels of quality control but still works in a degraded mode.

Radeon 9600SE is one of the worst DX9 cards. GeForce4 Ti4200 is a way better purchase than Radeon 9600SE. Radeon 9600XT should be 3x faster than Radeon 9600SE.
