    Im planning to get R9800Pro or R9800XT.
    But what brand?
    Not Asus... to expensive
    Not MSI... to bad of a model

    -> Sapphire? Powercolor? Gigabyte? Hightech? <-

    Just check that the clock speed and memory speed are the same and not particularly lower. Other than that, there is little, if any difference. If you get the XT, getting one that has a Half-Life 2 coupon would make the most sense.

    If you care at all about money, I would recommend this Radeon 9800 Pro:

    If you are low on cash get the pro but I would suggest the XT if you have the cash

    About OEMS? You think OEMS are good?
    Man... I don't trust them but OEMS of R9800PRO are like $289 CDN.

    But what brand should I get what manufacture should I get for 9800?
    Not asus! Not MSI!

    For one, OEM's are great, and MSI makes a good card.

    I'd get one by Sapphire or Powercolor, though.

    I cant see why you wanna get those cards when you can get x800 pro for a few more bucks? I think the price performance ratio of the x800 is too good to compare with a 9800 XT and also its a longer term buy. OK, 128mb 9800 pro is cheaper but 256mb XTs are not, at least in most of europe this is the case.
