Question Just Bought Radeon 9800pro r360core 128mb/256bit - good?

I just bought this ATI radeon 9800pro 128mb/256bit AGP 8x card off of eBay for $175. I think it has the new r360 core because the memory chips are in an L shape, so it should be a good overclocker right? What kind of FPS time should I expect for Half Life 2 with the resolution at 1024x768 and high model/texture settings? Do ya think it's a good card?

Personally I think ATI make the best cards for gaming, and all the comparsisons against nVidia, ATI have won, well that i have read.

So yea it would be a good buy, im not sure about the FPS tho, i run on ATI radeon 9600Xt 128mb, which is sweet

soviet, you must not have been reading for the past year because ati lost the current round against nvidias 6800 gt, that card is hot, although the FX series did lose against ati and their cards 9600-9800 series which was in 2003

But the 6800 beats the x800 in Doom 3. They all have there advantages in different areas.

Its true what Demalii about the FX series losing to the 9600-9800 but now they seem to be quite even but ATI's new x850 series should win the race for them now.
