Identifying a Graphics Card


I want to buy this gfx card out of this computer shop, seen it on the web "only" and it just says "ATI Radeon 9600 128MB DDR" how do i know if this is a pro or what? as i do want the ATI radeon 9600pro V 128mb.

Thanks. Wink

Identifying a Graphics Card

they come in a few versions but would say it isn't the pro without knowing the site

9600 SE = not so good crippled standard version, not worth it
9600 = good ish standard version, good if on a budget
9600 pro = good gaming card costing a bit more
9600 XT = pro version with higher clock speeds and ram so costs just that bit more.

So if in doubt phone the site, as you dont want to get ripped off cause of a typo in an advert.
