I am considering changing my Radeon 9700 graphics card (came with comp) for the latest Radeon 9800. Would this be easy to do? and would it be worth the cost?

Easy to do: yes.

Worth the cost: depends on if you are into high end gaming. What do you use the PC for?

Not worth the trouble for the money involved.
Do you have the 9700Pro or 9700 if the Pro upgrading to ordinary 9800 even less effective

Use the pc for gaming (racing). Card at moment is 9500PRO/9700 would be looking to change to 9800XT. So what you think?
