I called ATI Tech support today and he told me that since my card is listed as a pro that I got the better card since a pro is better than a non-pro (Duh!). I would suggest that everyone here that buys an ATI Radeon 9800 non-pro and it actually is just that to return the product and rebuy it until they get a pro card, becuase from what I just heard it sounds as if its a 50\50 gamble you could get more for less. This is strange is you ask me.
