    Hi all

    I have had a 9800Pro for ages now sitting in a 3ghz p4 with 1 gig ram etc. I think its time for a new video card and seeing the nice price on the Sapphire X800GTO I was considering the upgrade.

    Will I see a difference? I play WoW/ CSS/ BFME 2 and some other games.. Is it a nice + worth it upgrade?

    Please don't suggest nVidia, will never go there :o.

    Was going to suggest the 6800GS thats on offer this week but as you're obviously employed by ATI you may be better with the X800GTO, I'm sure the slower performance won't bother you.
