Alright.. I'm having trouble deciding which vid card to upgrade too for my comp so here's what ive narrowed it down too..
1: ATI RADEON 9800PRO 128MB
2: ATI XTACSY 256MB card
The radeon has more filters and comes bundled with Catalyst and is on sale for $199.00 US Dollars
But the other one is twice the refresh rate and memory, not as many filters and is only $130 US Dollars with a 30 dollar rebate making it 100 bucks..
My buddy works at Circuit City and he says go with the 256 cause of the better refresh rate and wont experience any slow down when Gaming but mainly I dont wanna miss out on any graphical aspects..The radeon has more filters but he says I wont be able to tell the diff between the two.. Only REAL REQUIREMENT the cards needed to have was a DVI-connection for my monitor..
