I played with it for all most a month. Great card. But $500 US to much.

it does annoy me that for that price i could get a console and a bunch of games and like play games with ppl in the same room as me, ya know like have a social life and stuff :D  but still its worth it and 500 at the end of the day aint that much money for me as i plan to keep this card for a bit...

Just buy a USB hub and some nice gamepads, then use the TV out and hunt down good PC multiplayer games...

PRO RACE DRIVER let's you play up to 4 people split screen.
Lord of the rings RETURN OF THE KING is a good multiplayer fighting title for the PC, too.

Tested the Asus version and its quite impressive but VERY pricy. Nothing that a slightly OCed 9800 pro can do though.

not that there is any reason why id need to overclock such a fast card but what should a 9800xt be overclockable to on stock cooler?
