The 9600SE is 1/2 the 9600 standard, which is 2/3 the 9600 Pro. At least on the memory interface, which is the most important thing on these cards.

$125 is way to much for a card with such meager performance.

Yep, the R9600SE is only good for 2D work, and at the price you are getting it for it's a ripoff!

only 64bit memory (instead of the 128bit of the R9600 & R9600PRO/XT, That makes it much slower than it's clock speeds would suggest. And as Crash says, the R9600 series is very memory limited so it matters ALOT.

Check some benchies for an idea;
