    5900XT????? and which card to buy

    is there such card??
    i found it for 154 inc vat+del (its a dabsvalue brand) so no idea what make it is.
    how does it perform compare to 9600SE/NP/PRO/XT and 9800SE/NP/PRO/XT

    on the other hand i've found a ATI 9800SE(made by ATI) for 157 inc vat+del

    and a 9600XT for 119

    which one would u go for?

    Afraid so!

    I'm not entirely sure. It is designed to compete with the 9600XT (yes, you read that right) so could well be slightly faster, just more expensive. Depends on the clockspeeds and memory bus width really.

    and a 9600XT for 119

    I didn't know 9600XTs were that cheap. That would get my vote, unless you can find a 9800SE that will definitely mod.

    MuFu.

    yea i thought wtf...119 for a 9600xt...very attractive indeed...
    but we are humans, we always want more...

    thats y i looked at 9800se....
    the hercules 9800SE AIW really look right for it..it has 256 bit, and clock speeds same as the 9800pro...
    and its selling at 165

    just trying to like u said, find one that will mod 100%
