Im hoping that Im not too late.
DO NOT BUY THE SAPPHIRE!
I paid $230 for an SAPPHIRE ATi Radeon 9800 Pro, back in the day, and it was nothing but problems. Never buy a Sapphire. If you have already boughten the card, when it gets to your house, return it, ASAP.
You don't have to listen to me, but I also upgraded to a Nvidia 6600GT and I love it.
My 6600GT is XFX, not Sapphire.
By the way, with my Sapphire card, I have lockup's whenever it got video intensive, and I got BSOD with many different types of Ram. It was a very picky card, and for the year I had it, it never worked correctly. Im not the first to complain, check the NewEgg reviews of the cards. :/
