The ATI 9800 is supposed to be rated one of the top graphics cards around.

ill rate it at a 9 .The only reason im not giveing it a 10 is the fan they put in the heatsink . Eventually ill install a 3500 rpm fan(from a hard drive cooler set) on the heatsink . I did the same on my ATI AIW 9700 Pro to fix a heat issue.

He never said what brand. If you wanted more fans you shoulda grabbed an ASUS 9800Pro.

CS it would run a 10. I dont play the game, but the graphics are so outdated that the card would run them as good as they possibly can be run.

UT2k4 I would say 9. Although I play it on 1024x768 with everything on high it doesnt quite give the extra edge.
