I'm currently Using a GF4 Ti4200 and was wondering if its worth it to upgrade to a Radeon 9500/9600 pro or 9700 for around $200 given the DX9 features. Will I notice a difference in performance and Image quality? Also, I want a glood card for quality DVD playback and my GF4 sucks for that. Thanks for the input!

A 9700 non-pro would be worth it... huge performance increase, especially when using AA and ansio, and Radeons are the best DVD playback cards hands down.

Damn! That sounds fanboyish. But it's the truth.

Not sure if I would bother upgrading to a 9500/960 tho, the Ti4200 is a pretty decent card.
