    OT: Anyone upgrade from 9800Pro to X800XT or X800P?

    What do you think...was it worth it?

    not at the current prices of the x800 (around 500, 450 at cheapest), although when the prices do decrease later on (less than 400?) it's probably a fine investment, as these cards are a substantially dramatic improvement over the 9800s

    The nvidia Geforce 6800GT is plenty fast enough, and is priced at a modest $299.99. It scores higher than the X800Pro in 3DMark'03.

    They should be available very soon. I currently have an ATi 9800XT, but I'll be moving to camp nvidia soon. I mean, c'mon, $450.00+ for something slower than a $299.99 dollar video card?

    ATi is...well, ripping everyone off. Trying to.

    Um, start talking Far Cry and other more DX9'ish games at 1600 x 1200 x 32 and a bunch of AA and AF and that statement falls flat on it's face real quick...

    i've got a 9800pro and i don't think i'll be upgrading anytime soon - it plays every game i have at max details fairly well. a tiny bit of a prob with "Far Cry" but ut2004, D-Ex 2, BF Vietnam, X2 - they all run fine fps > 50 (with high load).

    at least wait till Nvidia bring out their latest and see if it measures up.

    Very true.

    Haha. You wouldn't even need to enable AA/AF for that. Just up the resolution to anything above 1024x768.

    I've got tonnes of memory, an AMD fx-53 processor and a 5900 Ultra and I can still bring the system to it's knees! The games are still ahead of the hardware. There are DX9 features that aren't even used on DX9 cards because it slows them down too much.

    The new cards kick bottom but are just OTT in price at the mo. If you've got the dough though....

    although its unlikely that there will be a point in time when the hardware can handle any game on the market
