First of all, ati is not the best. There is no need to be suspocious of the site though. I have used pricewatch alot and it is always very good. However make sure that it is not refurbished.

Why don't you think so? Benchmarking has proved that ATI card perform better then nVidia.

Yeah price grabber is great I bought my ATI Radeon 9800XT from www.accupc.com for cheap(not refurbished too!).

Keep in mind that POWERCOLOR version of Radeons are sometimes lowerclocked then ATI versions thats why they are cheaper. The Radeon 9600SE keep in mind the SE since the SE version is towned down version then the standard version it only has 64-bit memory inteface compared to the Radeon 9600's 128-bit.
