What would you reccomend for a $200 vid card?
I was looking at 5900XT/9800Pro/5900SE
All those seem to be around $200. And where does the SE stand in those? It seems to be the same price as the XT. And just the plain 5900 seems to be $50 more expensive than them all.
Hmm, well I've never heard of the XT moniker on a Nvidia brand so can't help you there, but I can tell that the 9800 Pro is the best of those you mentioned
The SE is a budget model, it runs on half the pipelines and abit slower memory, you'll get much better performance if you go with the Pro
And unless that 5900 is an Ultra than it's not much competition for the 9800 Pro either
