I was searching on pricewatch for the cheapest Radeon 8500(retail) I could find. I found one for about 220 USD with shipping, but then I found one that's cheaper... but... it has a different name!!!
The name of it is the "Power Magic ATI Radeon 8500." I found at this site: http://www.bunta.com/. You're gonna have to search for it there. Does anyone know more about this thing? Is it a slower version of the 8500 or what? Or is it different (and cheaper) because it has different Tv in/out stuff. Does anyone know the real speed of this thing?
I have another quick question. I decided to get the 8500 radeon (retail version). Here are my specs:
HP 9795c (I hate brand computers....)
sucky HP motherboard
windowsME (messed-up HP version)
128mb rdram (will add another 256 in a month or two)
Does anyone know of any conflicts the 8500 might have with my motherboard, or know where, on the internet, I can find out about possible conflicts?? If anyone thinks I should get a geforce ti-200, let me know (and why).
My Cyrix 333mhz beats the snot out of my Pentium4 1.4ghz!
