Doesn't the Asus 5900 Ultra have 256mb ram? Slightly higher clock speeds
too, I am not sure about the other makes.

5900 Ultra:

256 MB DDR memory
Ya that's the one----Me Want :-D

I hate to say it, but your wasting your money. Even the Radeon 9700 Pro
outperforms the GFX 5900 Ultra in many cases when AA and AF are applied.
Read some reviews before you decide.

You mean like this review which has the 5900 Ultra smoking the 9800 Pro in
all games tested.

You need to be more up to date. That's an old article with old drivers using
the same old benchmarks. Might I interest you in this one:
http://www.ocaddiction.com/articles/...adeon_9800pro/ or
this one: http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NDg5. Notice the bad
performance in RtCW in the lattr review. Yikes! The article I based my first
statement used costum built benchmarks in popular games such as GTA: Vice
City, Warcraft III and NOLF2 thus bypassing any driver optimizations for
popular benchmarks (UT 2003 Flyby, Q3A etc. etc.). The Radeon 9700/9800
comes out on top in every benchmark here with 4x AA and 8x AF. I'll provide
a link when I can access Google and Rage3D again.

ps, I don't have many cases, just one to fit that card in.
Is it even possible that more than one PC uses the same graphicscard?
is there an AGP splitter?
