Re: 9700 PRO or FX 5900 OTES???
Bare in mind when comparing on farcry that with patch 1.1 the gffx produces incomparable image quality. Also the fx 5900 ultra is faster than its clock speed would indicate than the fx 5900nu in farcry due to having 256mb of ram while the fx 5900nu only has 128mb (firingsquad showed significant differences with the addition of 128mb)
Even on patch 1.1 the 9700 pro is atleast the same if not better than the fx 5900nu. With patch1.2 and the same quality on both cards the gap only widens
