Check out the new FX5700 before commiting, it's much faster that the FX5600 and gives the 9600XT a run for it's money.

The Ti4600 is old news now, I wouldn't by one

Well.. I just visited my two favorite Canadian web stores, and found that

at ncix.com

ATI 9600XT is $276
Gainward 5700 is $315

tigerdirect.ca

eVGA GeForceFX 5900se for $274
Chaintech GeForceFX 5600XT 256MB DDR $206
VisionTek Xtasy 9600 128MB DDR $220

That's about all I could find at these two places.

Is there a newegg.ca ? laff!

Anyhow, the geforce fx5900SE is pretty good, just slower than the standard 5900...

Ummm...Do not get the 5700, get the 5700 Ultra. 9600XT is probably a little better however.

Dude,

Circuit City is selling the ATI Radeon 9800 128mb (Non Pro - NOT an SE) card for $199. This is what you need to get.

See anandtech for performance cormparison.
