radeon 9500 pro tapped out?

#1
was looking at buying a Radeon 9500 pro 128Mb card(built by sapphire)... had a nice site lined up to buy it for $177, but now, since the 9500 was discontinued, they are all sold out, and wont be restocked!

does anyone know of a place where I can buy it, or a card of equal grüviness (the 9600 is ok, but only 4 pipelines) for <$180?

I would think perhaps www.pricewatch.com would be the place to check it out...

the 9600pro is a 0.13 micron process card (first such by ati) and while it does have fewer pipelines it overclocks like a rabid dog and is a pretty good performer on the whole...

been checking the past few days over prices and whatnot... decided to go with 9600 pro (sapphire) in full box (lots of grüvy cables that I would end up buying overpriced anyway, dvi/vga adpter which is always a ripoff, and wolfenstein, so it cant be too bad of a deal) from newegg.

my guess is that a few of you read the thread I started a while ago between the 9500 and 9600, plus motherboards and whatnot, there I decided to use 9500, now im back to 9600...how fickle am I?
regardless, thanks for all the help and suggestions

dunno bout you... but I am currently using most of the cables that came with my video card... and was doing so before with my 9700pro non AIW card... :)

the dvi/vga adaptor is useful for dual monitor setup when there is no dvi device present... :)

if you don't need the devices... don't worry about it... accesories are rather cheap on the market anyways,...

that is what I meant... Id be using most of the cables, so I figured why spend more money later when I can get them pretty cheap with the card

so for me, looks to be a pretty nice deal for a pretty smüv card with some pretty useful accessories :)
