dont buy 9800PRO 256 version, its even worst than 128MB version. although came with DDR-2

if u want to emphasise on 256MB memory card, then best is to get 9800XT.

na, u can only over lcokc the memory, but 9800XT was baed on R360 chip, PRO was on R350.

ATi had started giving Free Shipping on radeon 9800PRO 256MB as it wasnt sold like the way it was expected. and other bad decision was lanching 9800XT chip right after launching 800PRO @ 256MB.

i will not recommend 256MB PRO version anyway.

best for AMD's are nvidia, and ATi for Intels.

u'll find 5950 ultra @ this price i think
else get 9800XT or 9800PRO 128MB any of them. u'll get frame rates with ATi, but quality with nVidia.

Well, why the 9800 Pro 128mb stead of the 256mb? you said its worse then 128mb but seems like it would be better then the 128mb lol.

the 6600's should be in AGP sooon, I reccomend you get one of them, as they perform really well but are half the price of X800's and 6800 GT's

ill sell ya my 9800XT for 300$. watch ebay you could get lucky, and yea maybe you could get an x700 or 6600. (everyone on this forum trades allegiance like the wind and will probably tell you bad things about ati, all a bunch of bandwagon jumpers). haha

and im not startin a war, but i do think people just agree with each other all too much and dont know a whole lot necessarily. im not sayin x700 is better, im just sayin i dont think its as clear cut as some make it seem.
