    im just annoyed that they were allowed to name a 9*00 range at all, i mean the old ATI9800pro was probably the single most popular card ever and remained king for a huge amount of time compared to modern cards........I feel nvidia r trading off of that name now.

    I still think if you did a price per graphical horsepower test between the ATI 9800 and the nVidia 9800 ATI would (theoretically) win, given you can pick up an ATI 9800 for about £4 nowadays.

    Its looking more and more like the next PC I build will be built not when I can afford it but when nvidia or someone makes it actually worth it... I feel sorry for all the schmucks who 'upgraded' from a 8800 gtx to the 9800 gx2, all they got was 1/2 fps and a higher electricity bill!

    Someone should try running 20 ATI 9800s together. I want to see how it competes with the nVidia 9800.

    This topic is pretty relevant.
