I'm looking for a new GPU and am limited to under $100 US. In my browsing around Pricewatch.com I came across a Sapphire Radeon 9550 128mb. This is news to me as I had never heard of it before. The specs appear to be a good deal superior to that of a 9600 Pro and it is only $77 as opposed to $100-110 for the 9600. Anyone have any experience with it? BTW I did check the specs carefully, it is the standard 128bit version, not some cheap 64bit SE version.
