    You can't just convert the USD price to Euros and expect it to be even close to accurate. Any computer hardware is going to cost somewhere between 10% more and 100% more in any European country, especially one of the smaller ones, such as Portugal.

    does that mean that CLUB3D X800RX (GT) 256MB PCIe is a good choice ?!?

    Hmm, Yawg has a good point. I didn't think of that when I converted the prices. That would be a pretty decent price then if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg for anything else.

    My last card was an abit 9600xt 256mb vivo with 500/300 speeds as well. The memory on most of these cards is junky and mine was actually 297. It would not do any higher than 302 before crashing. So I left the mem at 300. The core is a different story and could do 600 no problem.
    Just before getting rid of it, I put on an arctic cooling ati silencer2 with arctic silver ceramique which was a minor help and it allowed the card to do 615/307 stable. The silencer helped fetch a much better buck when it came time to sell but it was also keeping the whole computer cooler.
    Beware that the cores of these cards are bare and need a foam or tape shim around them to prevent shorting of the microcomponents around their core.

    In the end it did not do much as the memory ended holding it back drastically. I am exchanging for a 6600gt on monday since the r9800pro I have now does not get along with my mobo.
