    So it will take awhile for cards with the 6 series chip set to come out if they just now announced that it had been picked up by the major card makers...right?

    So if it is going to take them time to pump out these new cards with the 6 series chip, would you think it would be okay for me to go ahead and buy my new card?

    I'm looking at an ASUS nVIDIA GeForce FX5900 Video Card, 128MB DDR, for $260. I'm just hopin that it won't drop in price the second I buy it, and I know they prices will go down when these new 6 series cards come out.

    I can't find an 9800 that can even compare the the 5900 in the same price range.

    I have seen nothing but good reviews for the 5900, plus ASUS is know for making good product, and this praticular card comes with a fairly nice buddle.

    But if you have any specific suggestions of what cards I should look at, I would gladly look at them.

    The ASUS 5900 has a core speed 400 and a memory speed of 850 and once again, nice bundle. If you can know of anything in that ballpark, once again, I would check it out.

    Core speed doesn't matter...well it does but not when you compare ati and nvidia.

    When you compare 9800 and 5900...the 9800 is the way to go because of its shader and coding sequence for future games...5900 is a great card only for games that dont use the advance shaders that half life2 is going to use...so i would go with the 9800pro sapphire that has a nice bundle and is 243..

    Intresting (and cheaper)...I noticed that most people say the 9800 pro runs 3dmark03 at about 6000 and the 5900 at 5200 (I assume this is a better indicator than specs. alone). I have only two more questions: whats the big deal with the shader and how would this card run with an AMD 64 3200 and 1g of ddr 400 (yeah, I'm planning on building a monster).
