OK, that is impressive

And no its doesn't mean you wasted money, it just won't look quite as good as that PS3.0 becoming a standard is still abit of a ways off and by then you'll need a new card anyway And how many games actually utilises PS3.0 now? Less than 5, so, not a total waste

The graphics on both the 9800 Pro and X800 Series are nearly the same, since they both have PS2.0 support and are both based off the R300 Core. The X800 just have faster memory and clock speed to make their graphics look less jagged and less squarish than the 9800 Pro with better performance. Other than that, both the 9800's and X800's PS2.0 cannot match the 6800's PS3.0 graphics and IQ.
