I'm very happy with my Gigabyte Radeon 9000 (non-Pro)

then
Powercolor/GigaCube


As for the difference bewteen the Atlantis and the Ultimate, it's the HSF The Ultimate uses a Zalman heatpipe for passive cooling (no fan).

And to make matters more complicated there are 2 Atlantis versions. The regular and the Fireblade.

Take a look at <A HREF="http://www.rage3d.com/reviews/Sapphire/sapphire9600s/" target="_new">this review</A> for the diff between the Atlantises (although unfortunately it is compared with an R9600NonPro,in any case the Fireblade is best) .

And ceck out <A HREF="http://www.ukgamer.com/article.php4?id=101&page=1" target="_new">this review</A> for an idea about the Ultimate edition.
