    You could probably get a second-hand 9700np for around that price.

    The 9600PRO even heavily o/c'ed is extremely lucky to even worry a 9700nonPRO at default clocks ... and the 9700nonPRO often o/c past 9700PRO & 9800nonPRO speeds every time! No question really, 9600PRO is a fine card (better than FX5600ultra) but the 9500PRO or 9700nonPRO are easily the cards to get ... if you can. As KeZZeR says, you may want to sit tight as things should be changing over the nest few weeks .. perhaps get a 4200-8X 128MB to tide you over as they're VERY nearly as fast as Rad9600PRO outside of DX9 and AA+AF ... and are only £70ish!
