    DarkRose: If you're looking to overclock, then I would suggest that you consider GeIL's new GT2 Radeon 9800 Pro card which also
    has considerably higher clock speeds, when compared to ATI's Radeon 9800 Pro reference model 445/740MHz vs. 380/680 MHz.
    The Hercules 3D Prophet 9800 Pro is a quality card (design, build and aesthetics), but it's not the greatest overclocker.

    BUT, if ur going to seriously OC, then save some more and get those suggested above (I'd say HIS excalibur are the best, out of the box u can OC the core to 450-470--hercules can't beat that :) )
    The Atlantis is a full fledged 9800 Pro. The one that uses the 9700 PCB is the 9800 "Pro Lite" that sells for $50 less.

    Think I've narrowed it down to 4 chouices, all 128 mb Radeon 9800 Pros,
    Gigabyte 9800 Pro
    GigeCube 9800 Pro
    Sapphire 9800 Pro
    Powercolor 9800 Pro

    This card probably won't be overclocked that heavy, I've just not had the time to research which uses what memory, etc.... all of these fall in the $300-$325 range at... Game VE I believe...
