my current card).Curently I have a Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB, just under 1 yr old, never overclocked, original driverdisc, no original box. The only difference is the 256MB Radeon 9800 Pro uses DDR II memory which has a higher latency compared to the old DDR memory. EDIT: How do you go about finding the card with the Samsung RAM? Ivy Bridge i5-3570K@4.0Ghz, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, 2x4GiB of PC3-12800, EVGA 660Ti, Corsair CX-600 and Fractal Refined R4 (W).

A 9800pro may last you a couple of years (2006 max?). Nvidia's offerings like 5900SE, 5900 go around the same price range and can play current generation of games fine. My current GeForce 3 has served me well, but it's starting to ail on newer games at high resolutions, and I'm afraid Half-Life 2 may be it's death knell. Is there really that much of a difference in the 50 MHz in GPU speed and the 100 MHz in mem speed?

Book your tickets now and visit Synology. Looking to have an Athlon 64 3200+ CPU to use with this graphics card. Discussion in 'Hardware & Software' started by Narcolepsy, Apr 28, 2004. The amount of video RAM on a videocard is still one of the least important aspects of it.

Why is the Nvidia £125 cheaper than the radeon 9800, and is my son right when he says the nVidia is the better of the two? weblink least it works well. Just a guess. But what about games?

The 256MB variant of the Radeon 9800 Pro is virtually identical to the 128MB model. This will be a media centre, and will also be used for games, both now and for a few years to come I hope Rigga 09:41 03 Mar 04 Hi The results here don't look too great for the XT, with insignificant increases over the Pro model. http://htmltemplatesfree.net/is-the/is-the-ati-radeon-hd5770-compatible-with-pcie-x16-1-0.html The ATI 9800Pro is worth more money than a Nvidia 5700VE....and games will run fine on the 9800 series.

Buying a 6800 for that system is silly, because your CPU is relatively slow.get yourself a radeon 9800 or Geforce 6600GT AGP, and upgrade your CPU to a cheap and better by HKPK_2005 / October 29, 2005 11:56 PM PDT In reply to: Dont do it It's me who has the 5700VE, and I'm giving it to my friend who has the I'll be interested to see how the next line of ATI's video cards perform.

If indeed the cheaper one is the 'SE' then I'd recommend going for the 9800 Pro instead. #9 jiffylube1024, Nov 18, 2003 Corporate Thug Lifer Joined: Apr 17, 2003 Messages: Track this discussion and email me when there are updates If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and That way you buy a 9800 Pro for a much cheaper price, but making it get the performance of the XT which is the most expensive card out of the 9800's. his comment is here Anyone have similar personal experiences with such upgrades? #1 Narcolepsy, Apr 28, 2004 ailevation Don't toke Sour Diesel Joined: Mar 10, 2004 Messages: 4,916 Likes Received: 0 Geforce 3 to

If you are too impatent try to find a 9700P/9800 non-PRO from a repuible vendor which come around $200-250 price range. hector 911 22:04 02 Mar 04 don`t waste your money on a 256MB card, hardly of any use even on playing games, stick with a 128Mb more than enough.and as already You can't really compare that to your setup either because you have a custom watercooling setup on there, whereas I can all but assure you this poster is not going for Most people tend to go with a 9800np and simply OC to near 9800 pro speeds.

Make absolutely certain this is a 9800np and not a 9800SE. The X600 is a four pixel pipe card, where the 9800 pro was eight, and the 9800 pro has a 256 bit memory bandwidth in either 128 MB or 256 MB Honestly, the X600 is only about half the card the 9800 pro is. The only games that could run at playible speeds that need more then 128MBs of RAM are older titles using 6xAA 16xAF at 1920x1440.
