"Outstanding Value"on by axekick
Cons Only that it has been on the market for so long
Summary There are so many graphics cards coming out I cannot recommend one over the other because I do not have time to research them all. However I do not know of a better card for the money than the Radeon 9800 Pro.
Pros Easy install, great graphics, doesn't break the bank.
Cons Drivers are out of date on the cd.
Summary Easy physical install, didn't take more than 10 minutes. The software is easy enough to install but the drivers are out of date. This caused a blue screen for me. A quick call to ATI's tech support and I was back in business. Didn't even need to replace anything. The graphics are smooth though and it doesnt run as hot as people might think. my case temp only went up about 5-7 degrees F. This could be a problem for some people however so you may want an extra fan or two. Overall this card rocks!
Pros They're dirt cheap, can play all games at medium settings
Cons No SM3.0 support, doesn't OC well
Summary Had this card for about 8 months until the 6600GT's blew it out of the water. Now they go for about $110-$140, but I'd easily recommend a 6600GT over a 9800Pro. Still, this gets a 9 for serving me well.
Pros Great graphics, smooth vvideo
Cons I didn't see any
Summary I upgraded from the ATI Radeon 9550, and am absolutely thrilled with my NASCAR Sim Racing. The grapichs are stunning and the game is sooo much more fun!!!!
Pros Its amazing you can play anny game with awsome graphics ...well i guess upgrading from an ati rage anything good :)
