Wait a little longer and buy the 9800 pro. Believe me, you'll thank
yourself. I've been in the same kind of situation. Just have
a bit more patience, i know it's long, but if you have been with
that ****ty card so long, why not stay with it a little longer.
I am aware that there are patches now available to get
9700 perfomance tricks by using 9800 drivers, but it's not
quite the same, go for the 9800 pro man. You'll love it, and
you will be sure to live another couple of years without upgrading.

wait for 9800 to come out, and dish out the extra cash if you think its that much better, if not, you just saved yourself some cash buying the (which will be cheaper) 9700

if you wait for the cat 3.3's you will get the same performance increases in a WHQL driver set...

ati is not all that happy with the gentleman who is putting together the 'patches' and are not going to be too happy with peopel claiming problems coz their cards are buggered... :)

be patient... wait for a couple of weeks or so to see when the new cat's are released and be happy...

the performance delta from a 9700pro-9800 should not be as great as that to a 9800pro...

even then if you have a 9700pro already there is no real point to upgrade to a 9800pro... logically...

just look @ the price points when it goes retail before you buy and you will be in a better position overall...
