Default ATI Radeon 9800 v. ATI Radeon 9700 Pro

Hi

I thinking about coming home to ATI for my next video card.
Is the Sapphire Radeon 9800 [non pro] faster than the ATI Radeon 9700
Pro?

The 9800 pro cost too much. I might be willing to pay close to $300

For the approximately $75 price difference between the 9700 Pro and the 9800
Pro, why not just go for the 9800 Pro? There is a significant difference in
performance, at least on the popular benchmarks.

I will wait until the Radeon 9700 Pro's price dips below $275.

Just bear in mind that according to Newegg the accessories are not
included. If you need them that could run the price back up pretty
close to what a new one goes for.

I bought this card:

http://www.pcwonderinc.com/atirad97pro1.html

On June 16th. I now have the retail ATI 9800 Pro. (My wife made me an offer I couldn't pass up & a guy at work "said" he would buy
the 9700 - he didn't)

I've advertised at work to sell the card for $200 - no offers yet. I'm in the dog house now, so I'm getting desperate! Ebay is
next - not a lot of gamers at work.

If you are truly interested I will ship it to you at my cost, provided you are in the states.

I had it installed for about a week. It comes with all the cables, a Sapphire install disk, and a PowerDVD XP 4.0 disk.

You can search this group for my messages (it is my real name) and on the Asus mobo group. I'm not a dealer, I'm just out the $273
I paid for it!

Sorry for the "add spam". g

You have permission to email me direct (take out the "DEL" and the "ME" from my address).

Steve

Have there been any head to head tests?

When the FSAA & Aniso is cranked up, I'd suspect the 9800 would win.
