Thread: 9600 Pro or 9800?

    The memory doesn't matter till doom3 comes out i think, because no existing game uses all the memory yet.
    I think that Doom 3 won't even use it all. I think 128 is enough. at the moment you can still can excellent results with 64.

    The are not refering to christmas prices. ATi has a new card coming out. This should cause all their cards to drop somewhat in price

    Yes, since I figured the 9800XT was coming out, the 9800 Pro and Non-Pro would drop in prices. I just don't know how much they will drop.

    Why don't you flash a 9800pro bios into a 9800np. They are basicly the same, but the pro has just better speeds for mem en engine.

    That is also the reason why it is harder to overclock a 9800pro then a 9800np. The pro is already clocked near its limits.

    I agree with this, the 9800 non-pro is flashable into a 9800-pro.

    This is not true. The Pro cards always use a higher grade of memory chips (check the ns rating) and overclock better than the non pro versions. There is a reason people buy the Pro.

    I have never seen a 9800 non pro overclock as high as a Pro. Also, its not clocked anywhere near its limits like you say, I have seen them at 530mhz core. If you ask me, that's no where near the stock speed. The non pro ones don't have the same potential as the Pros. They may be able to reach a similar core clock, but the memory will not have as much success.
