The Radeon 9800-XT will work well on your computer.

As for Geforce v.s. Radeon (nVidia v.s. ATI) there are many oppinions on this, but generally people seem to think that the Radeon chips are better, but the Geforce has better drivers.

imho the 9800-XT kicks *** though

You have a good system. It will perform well, and not too pricy (well except for that killer video card )

9800 XT is the top of the line for ATI and it will rock on your machine.
Driver issues are no longer a problem with ATI as they are now superior to NVIDIA in many respects such as fog rendering etc... providing you with better quality eye candy.

I can't remember if the 9800 XT comes in 128 and 256 M RAM though. If it does, go for the 256 as the new games coming out will be able to work with it all.

If you want to save a 100 $ or so, go for the 9800 PRO with 256 RAM as the difference between the PRO and the XT is not very big. (check review on or

One nice thing with the new cards is their direct 9X capabilities. Man they're awsome.
With the new cards, you can double your framerate in most circumstances which will make you a happy gamer.

2 X 512 MHz PC3200 in dual DDR mode
integrated 6.1 MAX audio

i used an mx440 64mb unreal2 played well enough, that is untill i dropped in a new fx with 256mb directx9 onboard mpeg2 encoder
built in. it was well worth the money, a mid range ati would kick it's *** probably. but for price/ram i think the nvidia wins
