I don't get time to look round all the forums http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif
can't wait until it becomes a bargain basement item :rolleyes:
How does the spec compare to the 9800xt? anyone got a comparison of tech info?
Just submitted a new budget for new graphic cards at work. I might get hold of the 6800 and test it at home http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

I really should be thinking about an upgrade. My nVIDIA 4600Ti is really lagging playing Hitman Contracts. That game requires some serious GPU. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif
Can I have your 4600 when you're done?
My 9800XT coughin, think I need a FireGL :rolleyes:
I wanna see what ATI is going to produce http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif
Pitty they cant just drop the price of these industry cards for the gaming public :(

gee and i thought that ATI were going to start ruling the industry... ive always been an nvidia fan... but ATI really caught my eye with the 9800... hmmm... might hold off a little longer till the new nvidia stock arrives on shore...
The only thing that really interests me about this card is it's Shader Model 3.0 support. Other than that, the ATI beats it out power wise, clock speed, and such.
Maybe I'll just wait for the next-gen cards in the fall.
