If i'm building a new computer (AMD 64 3200+, 1 gig ram, asus k8v deluxe se) how long would the 9800 pro last me in terms of games, and is there a better alternative thats not too expensive that I could get? Or any recommendations on what to do?
you're going to build a PC?
I'm really good at finding parts to build 1337 PC's, ask me if you want a list of parts.
for the video card, I've seen a few places that are apparently selling X800's in PCI express form
and when PCI express first comes out, expect it to be not as great as you think at first; after all, just about every new thing out has some problems with slowness or errors, just like AGP, USB and all versions of Windows did... well not too sure whether Windows OS's are any better than when they first came out
I suggest get a card like this
, forget PCI express for a while, and have fun playing HL2 and Doom 3 with your shiny new graphic card
