    Same spec as Hercules 3D Prophet 9800 Pro

    + 256mb
    + Dual DVI graphics controller
    + Active cooled ramsinks
    + Extreme chipset cooler (not shown)
    + Onboard temp monitor

    The question is, would you buy one?

    Those new FX drivers look promising, so maybe I would buy one. And if by 'one' you mean the Geforce FX 5800 then maybe :thumb: . ATI's linux driver support just got decent, and that makes me back off a little. In my household we have a Geforce 3 ti 200 128 DDR (My computer), Geforce 4 mx 440 64 DDR (My dads), and Geforce 2 mx 200 (My old card in my bro's). Not to mention I am on an Nforce 2 board. ATI seems to be getting better, and better, but I might want the Vacume-FX w/ the new drivers. We will see...

    BTW: Not like I am rich enough to afford one anyway lol...

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    I'd get one if I could afford it

    but my next one will probably be a 9700 pro once the price comes down some more
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    yes, i would not mind spending 500+ on a 256 9800 AIW, i mean no overclock (even though core speeds are the same) but still 9800 pro performance, thats top of the line
