Is this a good card?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Radeon 9600 Pro and I just won a RADEON 9800 pro HIS EXCALIBUR with IceQ on ebay for $95. Is this card significantly better? Or did I waste my money? I was trying to get a 6600GT but my limit is $100. Let me know what you think.

yes .... your 9800 pro can be modded to a 9800 xt. that's better or at least equal to any x700 out there. so yes your 9800 pro is far better then your 9600. good price btw ..... enjoy.

i had a 9800pro before i upgraded to pci. A really good card and better than this absolute cess pit of a x1300pro i've got now. It's only temp until x1900xt but yeah as long as yu don't put AA on you'll be laughing runs COD2 and CS:S fine and better than my current graphics card and also scores about 200-300 in 3dmark03 than the x1300pro. Good purchase

it will be a very good upgrade, especially if you can sell your 9600 pro for 60-70 bucks. not night and day but youll notice the difference.

Yes that would be a good upgrade, no need for a better card on your system than 9800 pro.

Not too far from that $100 limit

Just a thought.
