Radeon 9500 Pro or 9600?

Which of these 2 graphics cards is better?
Radeon 9500 Pro or the 9600?
I heard the 9500 Pro is better than the 9600 because it has 8 pixel pipelines, and the other only has 4...

9500pro is better but they don't make them now, 9800pro is available and is better still, plus it has dropped in price.

Best card for the reddies!

i will also go for the 9600 as it would make ati/radeon stupid for bringing new cards out that were not as good as the earlier models

The 9500pro is a better card as citadel says. Aalso ATI are not stupid as for a relatively small drop in performance the 9600 is far cheaper to manufacture.

the card supports directx 9
only costs £60..ish quid
