i bought mine close to a year ago, its a very well rounded card for the money but if you plan on playing cs:s and d3 it will run those but not as well as you might want. Again, depends on what you need.

well.. i have no idea i have never even owned an ATI card.. nor will i ever.. but i have a very very usefull chart with all the good info on it ... here is the link http://tech-report.com/etc/comparo/graphics/
find your card and compare it to the one you are going to buy ... i would suggest Nvidia but its a monetary matter there.. ati is cheaper.. less powerfull. .but cheaper check on prices on cards at www.pricewatch.com and compare... no matter what brand you get they should perform according to that chart(unless overclocked).. good luck =D

No it is not better than the 9800 Pro. See here for yourself, this is a great link for comparing practically every video card ever made:
