9500pro and 9600pro seem to be the "sweet spot" on the market right now for good gaming cards. You can play any game around right now with either of those cards. It would help if we had some idea of your budget though

As others have already asked your budget is an important factor. Basically, the best is the 9800 Pro, if you can afford its high price tag it should keep you going for a few years.

I suppose you thinking of Half-Life 2 and Doom 3?

Perhaps you could be right but usually, the top graphics card does last 2 years if not more. For example my step-dad spent 4000 on a GeForce 3 over two years ago, nearly three and yet it will still play every game out now on the highest settings

Yep, I'll echo that sentiment. Hack dude, long time no see...didnt explode ya PC did ya? lol Just slightly off topic here but still relevent. Anyone noticed that the 9700np and in other cases the 9700pro seem to be disappearing? the np, I can hardly find anywhere now, and its all looking like 9100s 9600s and 9800s, where the 9800 pro 128 is beginning to replace 9700 range, and the 9800 pro 256, becomming the new high end. I think in time the 9700s will be gone, and I'm sure then, that the 9800pro will slowly come down in price.

yeah exactly, instead of 9700pros getting a price drop, they are just vanishing, but I think they want us now to get the 9800pro, which although still expensive, will get to the 9700pro price soon enough. 9600pro's are cheaper than 9500pro, on average by 10-15 cheaper.

Don't get a 256mb. You could probably get a vastly better Radeon 9700 Pro 128mb for that price.
