I'm putting together my component list for my HTPC that I want to hook to my new Panasonic 50LC13 (50" LCD Rear Projection with 1280x720 native resolution). I'm trying to decide between the 9800 and 9600. I do want to play games in addition to normal stuff like watch movies and music visual effects, etc. I understand that the 9800 is much faster but for a resolution of only 1280x720 (that is not all that high) and a TV that wants a refresh rate of 60 would the 9600 be enough? Seems like getting faster hardware that can do faster refresh rates at higher resolutions would be a wast in this case. It's such a big jump in price! I could put the difference toward a capture card. What do you guys think?
