The 9700 Pro is actually quite a bit faster than a 5900XT in Farcry, approaching 5900 Ultra performance. As you can see in the first page, the 9800 which is a bit slower than the 9700P clearly outperforms the 5900XT. In the second link, the 9700 Pro is very close to a 5900 Ultra.

How much can a 9700 overclock usually? 5-10% maybe ??? I have yet to see a 5900xt that can't overclock 15%, most I've seen overclock 20%. Plus, with the bios mods for the 5900xt, its fun value is a lot higher than a 9700pro, IMO. The 9500pro had a similar fun value to the 5900xt, but they're impossible to find now.

My Radeon 9700 Pro would clock from 325/310 to 355/355, ran it like that for 2 years.

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

This thread is going nowhere fast, in my book both are great choices, as well as what the poll says. This is perfect for an endless Ati vs NV argument since not much performance wise separates both cards.
