I would like to mention to everyone that SVOL is truely a master because thanks to him I am now the proud owner of a new Radeon 9800. Had he not spilt some silver adhesive on my board and short circuited it I would not have had to buy a new card and would not be pumping out such spectacular framesrates. So hereby, thank you my friend for totally [-peep-] my card up and giving me reason to purchase the 9800.
I may only have a XP2200, 512 MB PC2100 however 12500 points in 3DMarks2001 is still more than enough from my point of view, after all I dont have the 2.6GHz and the PC3500 to obtain 16000+ points other do.
Now all I have to do is replace the hsf and place some heatsinks on the RAM and I will pump out framerates which the 9700 Pro never will...
It's often the case that lower life forms diefy higher life forms, for example my dog thought I was god I think. But rest assured, he does not have supernatural powers.

The reason I wrote the post was not to insult SVol but to tell him that he [-peep-] my cad up good and proper and that, despite the fact that I have been forced to go out and spend a few hundred Euro, I have a card which is better than his, that's all. I'm not pissed off with him, I'll just never allow him to touch my hardware again because he made a grand mess of it. If you guys saw how much silver he spilt on the circuitry of my card you would all realise why the card simply burnt out.
However I am pleased with my R350 card because it's pumping out a lot of power and the fact that it's not the pro version is of no concequence because the Hyundai memory and the 9800 core are very overclockable and I will obtain the performance out of it without having to pay so much money for it.
As I said another problem I have is that I don't have the processor nor the memory to squeeze a lot of points out of my system, after all, if I had the money i would have bought a promethia: www.oc-shop.com. And that is the shop I will take my card to have my hsf professionally replaced and have heatsinks stuck on my VRAM.
Also I can with certainty say that Win 2003 great is for gaming because it's simply a lot faster than XP. It's also a great program and I recommend everyone to download (don't buy the OS, William can go and kiss ass) the OS and use it...
oh for that much you'll have to look around their site, i really haven't paid enough attention once on their site to tell you exactly where, since i had just gotten an e-mail beta-testing offer and roughly checked it out. you can always contact reseller info, they're quick at responding.
