I'm checking up on this for a friend, who's looking into buying a 9800 Pro made by Connect3D. I personally have no idea how reliable this manufacturer is, or how good the quality of their cards are. anyone have any ideas? and, also, list a few good manufacturers of ATi cards off the top of your head if you can. I can't think of any, cuz my brain is mad at me or something and trying to keep it away from me. BUT I'M TOO SMART FOR MY BRAIN!
