Agree with anzak. Either save up for 6800 nu or hold out a month till you see agp 6600 cards on the market. I assume you have had your 9700 for a while. A few more months of having ati drivers isn't going to kill you. I would try and stay away from the nv3x line from nvidia. The nv4x line is much much much better.
