I currently have a Creative 3D Blaster GeForce2 TI running a P4 2.26, 512 MB DDR, Gigabyte GA-8IEXP.
Since ive started to play more games lately im considering upgrading my graphicsboard. Ive been looking on some FX5600Ultra and some Radeon 9600Pro. Anyone have any ideas or/and suggestions?

9600 PRO, hands down.

Very fast card, and far superior vertex and pixel shaders than the 5600 Ultra.

If you can afford it, lok for a 9700 non-pro or 9800 non-pro. Those cards have twice the memory bandwidth of the 9600 PRO and don't cost much more at all.
