Alantis are 9800 pro's

XT wont give you a noticeable increase, stick witth your current card

And why the dislike for Nvidia, that's fanboyism, and gets hit squads sent after u here...

Dale, anyone?

As for me, I preferred ATI cuz it was in the last gen that i started to get into vid cards, and ATI pwned, and the nvidia FX series sucked. now my opinions are reversed about this gen. The next gen looks poised to reverse em again, so im back to where i started.

If u want, u could prolly OC ur Pro to XT speeds


-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro

Ok, this guy is asking questions specifically related to ATI cards, the atlantis, pro, and xt , and everyone just comes in and says 6600GT or next generation. He even mentioned that he preferred to have the ATI cards because he was on a budget, yet people still came as said 6600GT, next generation. I think this is getting way out of hand.

Edit: Btw, stick with your current video card. The extra money will not give you noticable performance.
