Can anyone out there give me any advice as to which one of these cards is best?
They are about the same price and I want them to run halflife 2 when it comes out.

go for ati half life will run better on a ati based card.

there will be no difference except if the fx 5600 ultra is a version 2 it will be faster.

many thanks to everyone who replied.
i've read the reviews and it seems the cards are evenly matched.
you pays your money and takes your choice!

as a footnote, could anyone recommend a good
card manufacturer, i.e gigabyte, sapphire etc.
i've decided on a 9600pro.

if u can afford this and wait two weeks get this Asus ATI Radeon 9600XT/TVD 128MB & Half Life 2 Bundle - Retail.its more powerful than a 9600pro and comes with a coupon to get half-life 2 whens its "finally" released.
