Radeon 9700, Pro or not?

I remember reading a review somewhere which said that lots of times the processor is what limits the graphics and not the graphics card.

Anyone know if a P4 2.53, 512DDR433, Gigabyte 8SQ800 motherboard will be able to make full use of the Radeon 9700 Pro or if I should just go for a Radeon 9700?

Best regards,

  1. If you've got the dough, get the Pro. I'm a poet and didn't know it!

  2. You have a top of the line processor. Why are you asking this?

  3. Get the Radeon 9700 Pro. It's the best right now.
  4. How much is the price difference? If it's small, why wouldn't you want the best?

  5. Dude, stop posting already and go get the damn card! And don't forget, 9700Pro is the one you want.

    With a rig like that, it'll love you for giving it such a card!

    But your feet sure do show it, cause they're Long - Fellow! :tongue:

    Yes, go with the pro if you can afford it. The other question is do you plan to OC?
    You might want to take a look at the boards before you decide and check out the type of mem. Make sure you're not getting hosed. I have seen a few people getting cheaper mem on their non-retail boards. So be wise. Ask alot of question from the people selling it to you and get them to guarantee specs.
