    I was looking to upgrade my Geforce 5200 128mb ddr graphics card to a 9800 Pro 128 or 256... I looked on pricewatch and newegg.com and I came across this one card made by a company named "Sapphire"

    heres a link, let me know if its worth it OR if there is soemthing out there better bang for the buck, I'm a pretty hardcore gamer, FPS and RPGS so i need something that can keep up.

    My current computer specs are, 2.4ghz, 1gig of pc2100 ddr (i know i need upgrade), 80gb for the meantime, dvd + cdr combo + :insert graphics card:

    9800 pro is pretty weak man. Not worth the money, it is old gen.

    x800xt minimum. It will l fit well in your new PC when it comes.

    I love the fucking idiots who tell people to buy a $500 video card when they were looking at a $150 card.
