Default Advice on 8500dv to 9600 pro upgrade

I am looking to upgrade my AIW 8500dv with a 9600 pro. One of my questions is is the TV out of better quality than the 8500dv. My current card has many macro blocks when viewing movies on the tv and looks perfect on the monitor. Seems to have huge problems with dark scenes and shades of gray. Also has tearing when panning from side to side. What does everybody think of the powercolor 9600 pro 256mb card? I can get it for 150. Thanks guys

Do not get the 256mb version. It got more ram, but the ram is slower. (only 200)

Also, becareful when you buy a Powercolor 9600 pro. Make sure it is not one of those EZ editions. Those ones' ram also moves slower than normal. (only 200)
