    ATI Radeon 9550 or 9500 experience anyone. What's the ratings?

    P4 2.8ghz HT, 1.5gb, 160gb HD, Ati Radeon 9200 128m AGP 8x.

    I'm running Vista basic theme right now since my Ati Radeon 9200 video card
    is not supported with Aero but it seem to run just fine Although Window DVD
    maker is disabled.

    I'm thinking of getting Ati Radeon 9550 256mb agp 8x, has anyone encountered
    overheating issue, blue screen or some kind of problem since the card will be
    use most of the time with Aero glass effect and since this card does not have
    any fan at all.

    I used my 9550 temporarily until I got back my X850 from ATI. Everything
    worked OK but sluggish.
