Hey thats ok, I'm thinking of Upgrading to a 9200 or 9600. Not a huge leap but it quite a bit better and I can put the All in wonder card in the Home theater box I am working on.

That card looks sweet, comes with a full copy of far cry, very nice

I would recommend the 9600

the 9200 isnt a directx 9 card

hell 9800 pros keep coming down in price and if your on a budget I would wait for those to come down

^****, just check www.pricewatch.com and see if you can find a store that has a decent price on one.. just be sure to check store feedback before you buy anything

It is, I almost bought one of those awhile back but decided to just build a new comp all together

The 9800 XT is old though, doesnt take long for a video card to get outdated. It still plays games like far cry at a decent level (medium I think) but for anything else you need a 6600 GT or higher.

I want to be able to play at very high and I should be able to stock and shouldnt be a problem after I get done overclocking it.

Actually I had a Leadtek GeForce 2 Ultra that kicked ***. That was the first jump from 3DFX Voodoo 3000 and the Viper 770 Ultra (TNT2) that you could really see the inferiority of all other video cards

Cool BFG is 100% USA made and manufactured. That is almost unheard of.

I was looking at upgrading my Son to the BFG 5700 OC or the 5900XT for his birthday !!!
