Hello Im here asking again, "which should I buy" ? I have a dilemma here. I have a RADEON 9800 Pro (128mb), its flashed 9800XT... That card was working fine, I bought it like 8 months ago, IT DIED a few days ago! :'(  RIP!!! Ok, now im looking for a new AGP video card... Which should I buy? Does the Sapphire Radeon X800SE Video Card is a good choice? 309.99 is the price... I dont want to buy anything that exceeds $350.00... I really need counseling here... Thank you and have a nice day...

Last week Best Buy had 10% off BFG 6800GT. Their price is $399. Best price for that vid card. You can buy 6600GT or 6800OC for that price range.

Yup, currently the best AGP card for under $350 is a good deal on a GF6800GT. You could have bought one Christmas day at Compusa.com for $340 after a 15% instant savings code. But today, I have not seen one on sale. The 6600GT is a big step down, but is a little better than your 9800 pro. You can buy one from a local <A HREF="http://www.compusa.com/adproducts/product_info.asp?prod..." target="_new">Compusa for $200 after $30 rebate.</A>

Best Buy has the Samsung TV I want to buy on sale this week. Plus $100 Best Buy card. I asked a guy who worked there. He said it's a mail in gift card. I told him I would buy the BFG 6800GTOC if they would let me do that. To bad it's mail in. They had 1 BFG 6800GTOC in stock.

RMA your card for sure, or at least be sure to give it an effort...

He cant RMA the card for he has flashed the BIOS and they can tell when it has been altered regardless if he put the original bios back.

Dont touch anything thats "SE" for radeons. Get the x800pro or maybe a 6800. If you get the 6800, just make sure to PROPERLY remove the existing ATI drivers.
