    Go with the 9800 pro,it's only a few more dollars than the 9700! I also run the same mobo with a 2700 xp,great mobo! I just ordered a 9800 pro from new egg it will be in my possession tues!. You really can't go wrong with the 9700 or 9800 line of ati cards!
    Who says Nvidia is KING? Well nobody told ATI! ATI graphics the ONLY way it should be played!

    If you got the money just find the cheapest version of the card you want (go all out with the best bang for the buck) :cheers:
