Why did it say pro then on the adapter info?
Both cards use the same core - the difference lies in the memory interface, the type of memory used, and the core/memory clockspeeds. Also, you might notice that ATI makes no mention of the 9600SE on their 9600 product pages. ;)
ANyways, is there a good Graphics card for a low budget? Say 160 dollars or less>? Ive been looking at the fx 5900...is that cheap?
I assume we're talking US dollars - try looking for a 9800 Pro or greater, being wary of SE versions and those with 128-bit memory interfaces. A stock 9800 Pro has 8 pixel pipelines (the SE has 4), a 256-bit memory interface, and core/memory clockspeeds of 380/340.
