    i can get a ATI (not saphire) 9100 w/ 128MB for $140CAD

    Radeon 9100 128M DDR, VGA, DVI, TV-O, AGP4x ( OEM /retail ) $140/

    it is from Atic

    i am leaning towards a 128MB card. are ATI boards clocked faster than Saphire's?

    Generally I prefer a "built-by-ATi" card to any third party card - my 9700pro is a "built-by" - I think they generally have the least problems.

    that being said - I didn't know ATi produced their own 9100's - I've only ever seen 3rd party boards - & their wesite doesn't list it either. My supplier is an ATi partner as well & he doesn't know anything about them.

    Call these guys up and ask them what the clocks are - I wouldn't buy any Radeon with out finding out exactly what the clocks are first. ATi has been known to produce OEM cards with lower clocks in the past

    The 5800 may not even br coming out(rumors of it). But if it does it should have a 500/1GHz speed. Thats about 200/300 faster then the ATI9700 PRO level 1.
    What?? Hmmm... I think you should read this article written by John Carmack about the R300 vs the FX - http://www.beyond3d.com/interviews/jcnv30r300/ Enjoy..

    My advice would be buy a 9700Pro when the R350 comes out, the price will drop quite a bit, then wait for the NV40 in 2004. That's gonna be a kick a$$ card. :)
