    I have a Sapphire ATI 9800 pro, 128 meg version.
    I was a long time 3dfx/Nvidia guy and I'm very happy with my first ATI.

    I have the X800 and personally I will NEVER go back to Nvidia, the radeon
    cards are far better, higher scoring cards on various games, take a look at
    Toms Hardware for recommendations!

    got a problem with mine - very same card... be sure to check the two little
    plastic pins that hold the active cooler/heatsink assembly - on my system
    one of them failed, so I fried the chipset...

    Pro or XT version, been looking at my next upgrade and can't decide if I
    should go all the way with a new AMD 64, with PCI express and X800 XT, or
    just upgrade my 9700 Pro to the AGP X800 Pro/XT. Wondering how the 12/16
    pipelines really affect performance, as various benchmarks a close and the
    only real test is in game testing not benchmarks.

    I don't think you will see mutch difference yet. I have the XT, it's more
    power than you need for current games.

    My budget is modest. Around $100. Need a PCI slot as well. I have an XP
    home version.

    I guess the Radeon is an ok card, but $100 is actually a decent amount
    of money for a graphics card these days. If you add 10 or 20 bucks you
    can actually get a ATI X600 ($110) or a NVidia 6600 ($124) which are
    vastly superior. Check for instance:

    100 is ok, if you can't afford something decent, or if you prefer mediocre.
    :)

    Personally, I always go for what I can afford... and then drop down a notch.
    I find the very top end over priced, so I either wait until prices drop a
    little of the next gen comes along and then get the former top of the
    line... saves around 20-30%.

    For example, was in the market last year for a new vid card... been looking
    at the 9700 Pro.. waited for the 9800 Pro to come along and got my 9700 Pro
    for 215 (down from around 300).

    Already seen some prices drops on the X800 XT now that PE is out, and the
    X850 XT PE is also just around the corner. (It's out, but won't really see
    retail until new year). You can now get an X800 XT for under 300 now... when
    they hit 250 I'll grab one. Not enough performance increase over the PE to
    justify the extra 50-70.

    PCI express or just normal PCI?
