Best make of ATI 9800 PRO ???

  Tweaks 12:44 08 Sep 2003

well im getting very close to upgrade time and after trawling the web and comp fairs i have decided the gfx card i want to get is the ATI 9800 Pro 128mb. i got offered a Gigabyte GFX card for 289-00 new. Is it worth it? its the best price i have found but are they any good?

oh if it matters my system spec is:
mobo MSI 865 PE Neo2
P4 2.8 - 800Mhz FSB
512mb RAM 400 Mhz
blah blah blah

cheers Tweaks

One mag review came out with Connect3D9800Pro as best,due to the fact you could overclock it easily

the card i was offered was a "powercolor" card i think. u heard anything about them?

the sack: thats not the 9800 pro though its a plain 9800. (slower chip set)

although i just read that review posted in ebuyer and that kinda makes sence. this is gr8 this i exactly what i hoped for on posting this message. 70 quid in my pocket. ! nice

Never! i go to the foot of our stairs! You want to pay an extra 70 quid for an extra 6 or 7FPS? thats going to be noticable when the card it pulling 300FPS in Quake III isnt it.

The chip set is identical, it is just clocked lower, there is no difference apart from it is clocked lower.
