Yes, you can bet that I will be getting the X800 PRO.:w00t:
Depend on the game. I am waiting from Tribes : Vengenace. If the Ati is works better on T:V and Half Life 2, then no problem . I want to get X800 platium.
....hmm.... i'm not sure i'm liking the marketing tactics behind it.... Pro is actually a Non-Pro and XT a Pro?..... a well.... buyers fault if he/she doesn't research it.... i doubt i'll get it for a long time from now...
waiting til the price drops rofl come on it just got released what you expect? rofl if they price it to low they have to price old the old stuff to like below cost lol
i'll buy the last highend ati agp card whenever so said card is available for $250.00 or less
Well, if I had waited 9 months to buy my 9800 Pro I coulda saved a bundle.
Not until the price drops
well you should note one thing remeber a 9800xt 256 at these places that are takeing pre orders still go for like $499 and $299 for 9800 pro 128's
so from some else were when these are shipped were looking at alot lower prices i'd estamate about $100 or more in saveing then listed in those links above..
Yep, im just gonna wait 2.
I'll wait and see what the next generation holds. I just got this 9800pro and I'm not gonna upgrade that for awhile. It should last me for AT LEAST a year.
my 9800 pro 256 does it all and mroe for me right now..so i'll wait till ti hiccups before i buy again
admit it you din't plan this far ahead and have that much money to burn? now did you?
Im waiting for a full system upgrade (along with a 64 bit chip and PCI express) in a year and a half. We'll see whats happening then! For now my 9700Pro (9500n\o in disguise) works great!
the card is just to expensive for me...i cant afford to shell out 500+++ for a gfx card
If it is the fastest then I will Purchase 1 ASAP. Probally by the end of the month. I will have to change my avatar Though and I kinda like it. Guess I'll just have to change the 'ATI' to something else.
Hard decision as it will not transfer over to a new BTX PCI Express system the first of next year. I would like the benfit on Far Cry and the new generation cards now. The 9800 Pro plays it on medium settings, but I am held back by an aging system. Looking to take the CPU up to 2.8GHz and the X800XT may give a little more life until the build?
Unlike in the case of the R3xx versus the NV3x generation of GPUs, this decision is hard.
As far as I'm concerned, ATI has these things going for it:
(1) Faster performance under heavy AA and AF modes.
(2) Faster performance in the current generation of PC games
(3) No need for a larger capacity PSU
(4) Uses 1 molex connector
nVIDIA, on the other hand, has these things going for it:
(1) More feature rich--SM3.0, media encoder/decoder
(2) Longer lifespan. I upgrade videocards about every 2 years. If I were to buy one this summer, I won't get a new one until 2006 probably. In that case, the 6800 Ultra will be more future-proof as SM3.0-based games will surely come later this year and next year.
(3) 6800 series don't lag that far behind the R420-based cards.
I guess if someone handed me $500 and told me to buy whatever card I want, I'll probably choose the 6800Ultra. If it was my own money, I don't know if I can make a decision right away.
Yes i did...and thats all im saying..:bleh:
Speaking of PCI Express. I have The Tyan Thunder dual CPU Mobo Here for the weekend complete with 2 Opteron's, 4 gigs of regestered corsair pc3200, and 2 maxtors on raid. But no Videocard as it's PCI Express. Can I find a PCI Express card somewhere so I can play with this thing?
