Same spec as Hercules 3D Prophet 9800 Pro

+ 256mb
+ Dual DVI graphics controller
+ Active cooled ramsinks
+ Extreme chipset cooler (not shown)
+ Onboard temp monitor

The question is, would you buy one?

Those new FX drivers look promising, so maybe I would buy one. And if by 'one' you mean the Geforce FX 5800 then maybe :thumb: . ATI's linux driver support just got decent, and that makes me back off a little. In my household we have a Geforce 3 ti 200 128 DDR (My computer), Geforce 4 mx 440 64 DDR (My dads), and Geforce 2 mx 200 (My old card in my bro's). Not to mention I am on an Nforce 2 board. ATI seems to be getting better, and better, but I might want the Vacume-FX w/ the new drivers. We will see...

BTW: Not like I am rich enough to afford one anyway lol...

I'd get one if I could afford it

but my next one will probably be a 9700 pro once the price comes down some more

Mmmmm....Sweet board ! :blowkiss:
I wonder if they'll make an Hercules 3D Prophet AIW 9800 Pro 256mb ? That would be SWEET ! :p

yes, i would not mind spending 500+ on a 256 9800 AIW, i mean no overclock (even though core speeds are the same) but still 9800 pro performance, thats top of the line
