okie... question for all you gaming junkies,

I still need advice on what card to upgrade to when I get a new computer... I'm looking @ either a Radeon 9500 Pro or a 9700 Pro...

i'm wondering which is better for the money...

but also... which if either of them will run games that come out in a year or two... will the 9500 survive on games like KOTOR and JK:JA or future sequels? and if so will it have acceptable framerates, or is it nearing the end of its life? if any of you have either of these cards and could give me some evaluations that would be appreciated as well... thanks :)

9800 Pro is way out of my price range and 9600 Pro is worse than the 9500... 9500 beats the GeForce FX 5600 in most tests but its technology is somewhat outdated.

thx in advance guys...

Get the 9700 Pro, I think it has gone down like $100 since the 9800 came out.

I have the All-In-Wonder 9700 PRO, its very nice!
