Lol, you have the same motherboard as me...I didn't think anyone else had it, lol. I don't especially like this motherboard, but meh.

You SHOULD get a new motherboard. For the price of the X850XT PE, you could get a good, new motherboard and a current generation Nvidia card that would kill the X850XTPE (eVGA GeForce 7800GT, $320). The X850XTPE is last generation and is absolutely no match for the 7800GT. The difference is like the X850Pro and your 9800Pro...and the 7800GT is still cheaper.

ATi cards suck. Good luck with that bro. Your listening to a bunch of noobs.

I would get a 6800GT over that garbage.

Don't you even read what the man said he want to stick with ATI, after all is his own decision, we are only helping out with which ATI card is bet situated for him.

Shut the **** up Shawn for ****s sake, help the man out and not critisize. Get the x850 if you really want to stick with ati... Simple as that!!! BUT If I where in your shoes and had approx. a 500 limit I would say

(the video card on the upper right)

If you do that you won't believe how great that is and even though you have an ATi and I do aswell I must say They suck with drivers and with the combo I said then you will be most satisfied.

Thats what I said too. the 7800GT kills the X850XTPE. And that motherboard is like one of the top ones out there.

I SERIOULY recommend you get that motherboard and the eVGA 7800GT (theres an XFX one at the top too, and XFX has the highest failure rate). Why do you want to stick with ATi? Just because you've always had their product?
