    Hmm i am thinking of returning 9100 and pay more to get RD9500 pro.
    i was gonna stay with 9100 because of tight budget i was trying to manage.

    Here is the thing though...
    I am disappointed at the image quality.
    and my mobo support only 4x

    Is it worth my money to use 9500 pro(8X) if i can't upgrade my mobo? (cuz once i spend all my money on the card i won't be upgrading mobo for along time.)

    I also use AMD 1800+ with 512 DDR..
    so my system ain't that great..
    i just think buying RD9500 would be waste because 1st, my system will not be able to back it up to the extend i want.. and 2nd, it would be overspending..

    some also recommanded me to get GF4 Ti..

    Should i keep 9100? or should i buy GF4 ti / 9500 pro?

    any advices?

    The ATI 9500 Pro is the better product. The card runs excellent in 4X AGP and will do very well on your system according to your specs. You still have a nice PC for gaming.

    You will be happy with the image quality and performance of the 9500 Pro. Make sure the card is compatible with your motherboard. I think you'll be fine. You will definetely see a increase with the 9500 Pro over the 9100. Only you know what your budget will allow.


    Hope this helps.

    Realistically there is almost no difference between 4x/8x as far as performance is concerned because the bandwith 8x requires is non-existant by the computer. So don't worry about 8x AGP, at the moment it's a marketing gimic.
