Quote:Originally posted by RudyR1999 I don't know where you are reading, but I don't think the ATI will out power the NVIDIA. From where I have read its going to be king of the hill when it comes out. I would just save my money and get the NVIDIA. Thats just my opinion though.
Quote:Originally posted by cvearl Why do ATI fanboys always say this??? I don't get it. If the cards are comparable in price by March and the FX is faster and more feature rich then why the hell not????
Quote:Originally posted by Dante We're going to start this again...It has nothing to do with being a "fanboy". Yes, in March if both are similarly priced then it makes no sense to buy the lesser card. But for right now, for people who need a video card today or tomorrow (not in a month or two), there's no reason not to buy the 9700 PRO because it's going to be more than enough power for a long time. Hell, my Ti4600 is more than enough power for a long time. Not everybody wants to sit and wait for nVIDIA to release their next card.If you always wait for the next product to be released, you'll never build your computer. Everytime something hits the market, talk of something better has begun a week before that.

Quote:Originally posted by L337Llama Yeah, but the non-pro 9500 is a 9700 with half the pixel pipelines disabled. The rivatuner patch unlocks those so it is essentailly and 9700. You dont need to flash the bios or solder anything, and thatd eat the t14200 alive.
