    your're a mod, so i'll try and spell it out for you, nicely................what's the point of 800x600 capability of the X-box, if the TV is only capable of 640x480....get it now?......cough, cough

    I'm not saying thats how it is, its just what I was told.

    It would make sense for that to be the reason why Xbox games can have less jaggies in general than other systems.

    Deliberately posting off topic? Don't bother...

    A lot of TVs now can support higher resolutions, namely HDTV compatible sets. Modern generation consoles try and support this where they can, so 640x480 isn't all that they have to adhere to. Plus, with plasma screens and their higher resolutions becoming more widespread, it's a natural progression really.

    yes, i recognized that the higher resolutions were possible, and therefore conceded that point..............but, nonetheless, that probably isn't the case in this instance nor would it be the case in most other instances as well, so let me get off topic, as it is becoming a weary issue, considering this line of rhetoric, is off topic, from the original thread........sapphire oem radeon 9800 pro 128 mb

    You are right this thread has gotten off-topic from its original purpose in which I have already come to the conclusion that this card is not for me on the basis that it will not perform to my expectations.

    anadtech's review shows very little difference between the 9800 pro and the 9700 pro, and hardocp shows little improvement of the 9800xt over the 9700 pro...........with the new core cards nv40/r420 coming within the year, the 9700 pro may well be the best value looked @ the perspective of being a very good stop gap card in the interim..............or even wait for the 9600xt, get HL2, and suffer more on the performance end until the new core cards arrive........but, either way, it's win/win
    yours very truly, junior........................hehe

    The 9800s clock a lot better than the 9700s and put a big gap there easily. They are also faster at the same clock.
