I am currently have a dilemma.  I am currenlty trying to decide what video card I want to purchase and I can't decide.

cards that I am looking at:

Chaintech AA FX 5700 Utlra
Abit FX 5700 Ultra
ATI Radeon 9600XT
Sapphire Radeon 9600XT



Requirements for this question.   Do not talk about any other card but these four, period.  Give me which one you would chose and why.  Talking about more than one card in your post and you will not get any points.  


just a note, there are two chaintech cards i am only looking at the AA model.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the Chaintech card?  I can not find them, i just know that it is large.


My thoughts:

I am currently leaning towards the Chaintech card.  The price is a little more than the 9600Xt and that is why i can't decide.  I like the card b/c it is an excellent and fast card. Overclocks very well and has good heatsink and fans.  It also comes with a nice package of stuff (this is the winner over the Abit card).  It will also be a little easier to install as I won't have to change my drivers.  The thing that I really like about the card is that it has DDR2 memory, which is why it is slighty better then the 9600XT.  

thanks for the help in advance.
