    cuz monsters cost money...and i'm not about to dump 400-500 on a card when i could buy a cheaper one that will be usable for just as long.


    and what is hijacking? if i knew what it was, odds are i wouldn't do it.

    if you're going to be gaming, the vid card is the only thing you go all out on. my machine has a 3000xp bought for 150 - and soon to have a R420. all i'm saying is your machine will boot in like 15 seconds, it will load up real quick and lag during play. not a good thing to experience after blowing a few grand.

    and hijacking is changing the subject of a thread. we WERE discussing the colossal failure that is modern day nVidia

    AMD 3000 XP +

    Duely noted but all the same, I can only afford to spend about 250 on a card. I'm not looking for a gaming system as much as I am something that can handle all sorts of projects at once...my current computer can't even run word xp and kazaa at the same time; they both suck up the memory and my processor can't keep up. Gaming is definitely a plus, I love computer gaming and thats why I'm looking for the best card I can get at this time (and I think both the 5900FX and 9800 Pro are both good chips), but my main priority is to get a computer that can keep up with all the XP software, which my little anthlon 1.05 ain't doing.

    By the way, I believe this does tie into the dismal state nVidia is in; we are sitting here arguing which company produces the best chip. I have personally always been a nVidia person, but the ATI people have brought up some valid points that check out (i.e. ATI's shading ability, though I still don't fully comprehend what the big, fat deal with shading is anyway). So come on, keep the nVidia vs. ATI talk comin.

    current games aren't even coming close to 256...much less 512

    same goes with 8X bus speed...but technology moves forward I guess..?

    But of course, they will do anything to jack up the price of cards to ungodly prices because they know there are crazy crazy people out there who will pay those crazy crazy prices for technology they won't be using for another five years.

    But thats good for the rest of us cuz the prices of what WERE the ungodly priced cards will fall into our price range. It's the circle of life!

    512MB of GDDR3 is more about marketing than anything else.
