Want to Upgrade VC, from Radeon 9600XT to what?

Don't have much money, probably around $150 to spend.
I currently have a ATI Radeon 9600XT 128mb and want something more powerful for Battlefield 2, eventhough I can run it at 800x600 pretty well.

Should I got for a ATI Radeon 9800 PRO?

  1. Go with a 6800 if you have 190US.
  2. Or wait until the next generation, due in less than a week and all the mid-range of the current generation should see a price drop within 1-2 month.

    Asus P4P800DX, P4C 2.6ghz@3.25ghz, 2X512 OCZ PC4000 3-4-4-8, Leadtek FX5900 w/ FX5950U bios@500/1000, 2X30gig Raid0
  3. IMO 3-4 months.
  4. Umm yes 1-2 month is optimistic. Thats the kind of figure we could expect if nVidia and ATI could pump lots of card from day one.
    But it never happens...IMO you shoudl still wait because de 9600XT is still good!

    Asus P4P800DX, P4C 2.6ghz@3.25ghz, 2X512 OCZ PC4000 3-4-4-8, Leadtek FX5900 w/ FX5950U bios@500/1000, 2X30gig Raid0
  5. Meh. I wouldn't bother with anything less than a vanilla X800/6800, if you've alreday got a 9600XT.

    Assuming you could get $60 on ebay for your old card, you should be able to score an X800/6800 with the $210 easy...

  6. Cool, thanks for info.
    I might then wait till Xmas for the new card then and see what the prices have droped to.
  7. Might be wise because you card is far from obsolete.
    Altough if you plan to sell it, it wont be worth much around x-mas, alaways something to keep in mind..
