    Should I get a X800 XT to replace my 9600 pro ? Or spend the money on something else ?

    what are the specs for your system.
    the x800 will be wasted if you dont have a fast system.

    I have a 3200+ on a NF7-S, 1 gig of Corsair pc3200. I was also thinking about just getting a 9800 pro since their so cheap now.

    the 9800 might be best.
    its a fast system but i think an x800 might be choked slightly by the system

    A 9800 Pro would definitely be best. You probably wouldn't even see improvement if you went with anything better than a 9800XT. The X800 will be too CPU-limited in most games.

    That might not be true if you OCed it a lot. Have you OCed at all? You might be able to get it fast enough that it doesn't hold back the X800.

    X800 is nice. If you're into paintball at all; a good analagy would be: the tippman 98 is to paintball gamers what the ATI 9800 is to gamers. It's cheaper, reliable, and realisticly great for the gamer that doesn't mind "one over par" graphics.
