How does the 9500pro compare to the 9600xt or the fx5700?? I've had this card for a year and i am thinking of upgrading or overclocking it( i've fitted an artic cooling vga silencer kit, to cut down on some of the noise and cool it better) does this card o/clock very well or should i consider an fx5900xt which i've read good reviews about, with pci express over the horizon i loathe to spend out if i can improve this card for the next year or so when i will be in a position to upgrade, you know, 64 bit processor,64 bit xp (when they've de-bugged it!)

9500 Pro is a great card. It does overclock...
Go here (http://www.omegacorner.com/index.html) for more info. Be carefull. If you are going to upgrade do not go lower than a 9800Pro128 or else you are just wasting your money. 9800Pro...NOT SE.......Pro or better.
You wont see massive frame increase but you will see better quality. The only reason I upgraded ws because I could get a 9800 Pro 128 for $199 after rebates at the time..... otherwise I would still be running my 9500 Pro.
