If I get a amd 2500+ cpu, would a 6800nu have any performance difference over a 9800 Pro? Right now I have a nasty old amd, so im sure the performance difference will be nothing, but im going to upgrade soon, so which card would be better for the system?

the 6800 has much better performance than the 9800xt but if you have a great graphics card, you wont get full potential performance out of it without good mobo, cpu and ram


Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.

Stick with the 9800

the extra funds will be better used on CPU/memory/motherboard
