    Im curious anyone know what the proper voltage in the bios is for a RADEON 9800 PRO 256 MB version?

    I wanted to set it manually instead of using auto just to eliminate any possible problems.

    Thanks for the help.

    Nice card! I was looking at that one. But the cheapest I saw it for was $669.95 (CDN). I'm either getting that sucker or a 9600 w/ 256mb for $209.95.

    why a 9600 with 256mb? by the time games use that memory, the card itself won't really be powerful enough to run the games smoothly at full detail.

    Yeah, I just took a look at that 9600 w/ 256 and its Memory/Core clocks are much lower than the 9800 w/128. It was not a "Pro" version, the Pro 9600 is not bad.

    My parts source BTW

    there is no logical reason for you to buy a card like the 9600 w. 256mb memory unless you are using lots of 3d memory hungry apps and doing 3d design work...

    its a waste of money... get the 128 mb version or get the PRO version...

    Using Maya, XSI, 3DSMAX, photoshop. Technically I could be good to go with a 512mb+ Oxygen, or a Wildcat. But I wanted a gaming card.
