ati's graphics are just insanely beautiful... i compared a fx5600xt and a ati 9600xt and the ati just looked nicer =) give ati a try, other than the driver issues, which you'll get used to, they're awsome

i would wait now to buy a graphics card because the new models are coming out soon
and the 9800xt and fx5950 coast alot so i would hate to buy one now when it will get outdated soon

well the 9800 Pro runs on par with the 9800 xt . Also on a few reviews ive read when you crank up the graphics 9800 pro pulls ahead of the pack . I picked up a 9800 Pro from Compusa for
$ 199.00

i just brought a fx 5900 becuase the fx 5900 are a lot cheaper and it is the best so i would say the fx 5950 cause i can run games like max payne 2 , xIII , Worms 3d ( all the lastest games )at top settings and still get insane frame rates and picture quilty so if the fx 5950 is better then that is amazing.
