I asked in another forum for a good 9800 Pro card they said that I shuld get a Club 3d 9800 Pro and put a new cooling and something on the memmory (heatsink?) and then it would be as good as any 9800 PRO card. Is that true?

NO.

But it will be as good as any other Powercolor Built R9800Pro.

I think he tries to explain that heatsink can help to disipate heat from memory, but if memory is rated for exemple to run at 700Mhz, it is hard it can run much faster. Memory "physics" are limiting more than heat when dealing with not top memory.

Anyway, it's still a 9800Pro, so enjoyed and only care about performance if you can't run games at your desired settings.

Hope this helps!

Ups, another question. Are you going to put the 9800Pro with the config of your signature? 180W PSU can NOT handle a 9800Pro. A 300W PSU is required, and I would add from a well-known manufacturer at least! Not kidding!
