    i bought a 9800 pro from an online store for 300.00 when i took it out of the box i saw that it had infineon ram 3.0ns is this possible. when i checked the ram it was 331/378 . i thought that all of the pro cards had 2.8 samsung ram what i am worried about that i paid for a pro and got a non pro the bios say samsung 350 . do they use samsung bios for infineon ram. i also thought that pro clock speed for ram was 338? has this card been overclocked to a pro and sold as a pro . i talked to ati and they said that the serial number is pro and that the numbers printed on the bord could either be for non or pro. they also could not tell me what ram comes on the pro. the place charges 20% restocking fee so i will probably going to keep it. i would just like to find out if i just got ripped off. i also thought about sending it to ati for replacement any options it will be covered by ati so they said.

    Did you buy it using a good credit card, like a VISA? If you did, you can just return it saying they didn't provide the specified product or that it wasn't what you expected and you don't have to pay a dime; the credit card company will fight it for you. Xoxide.com did the same thing, but the fans they gave me were way above "quiet" so I sent them back and got a FULL refund, no 15% restocking fee, nada, zilch. Try it :thumb: . : peace2: Mista K6
