After switiching with a Mac Mini and really loving it, I recently decided to get a dual PM G5. I agnonized over the choice of the video card after reading poor reviews of the 9650 here and here . Deciding that the 9600 was faster and cheaper, I didn't bother upgrading to the 9650. After receiving the system, System profiler lists my card as 9600 (no XT) with the RV351 chipset even though 9600XT appears on my invoice. I confused as to whether this is faster or slower than the 9650 since reports state that the 9650 is a 9600 (RV351) with more VRAM. Did I make the right choice? Should I have anted up the $50 for the 9650? Is there anything I can do now? Any help appreciated.
