Wanting to upgrade but not able to decide on 128Mb ATI Radeon 9800 Pro RTL (Sapphire)lite version or NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 V9950GE 128mb.
Want to play Doom 3 unreal Halo Farcry etc. Advice please .... Thanks

Personally would go for the 9800 pro (should cost somewhere around £130-£140) Recently installed a sapphire into a new gaming machine I built. Does the business :-)
For the price I don't think you'll find better. Should last for a good few years yet.

personnally i would go for the 5900 FX card, has faster chipclock and memoryclock speeds but heres link to site that has tested graphics cards thoroughly and has tables on how they perform on some of the latest games.

I have ordered a Connect3D ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB TV-Out/DVI - Retail (GX-005-CO)from overclockers. Hope I have made the right decision :-)
