Don't. This place isn't nVidia friendly at all.

Friendly Tip: It's steep, not Steap.

So steep that youre embarrassed about it? How does that work? Id take a guess at $600.

Well, $600 is the normal price for the card... unless you look on newegg and find it for $550.
And don't be so embarrassed about it seeing as you're not the only one who baught it... :)

not a hard point to prove, there aren't any nvidia friendly places on the web right now, I wonder why.

Have you guys ever seen the prices for Matrox Parhelia 256MB? That's 1000 Cdn dollars vs about $800 for 5900U... (or $600 vs $500US)

yeh that's quite insane. one here for $564 (https://www.antarescomputinginc.com/servlet/OOSProductBrowser4RetS?m=0________________________ __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __________________________&details=y&pid=612&x1=Computer_Parts&CLink=Video_Card&userID=0&EW_TKEY=490866110182109954$kt) So I guess they're around the same price. You would have to be totally silly to buy a Parhelia when you can get a 256MB 9800PRO for about $489. I guess they do have the added advantage of the three monitor thing though. Hey you would have to have tonnes of cash to set that up anyways. It would be nice to see that.

well I'm sure a lot of that inflated price is due to tax and all that. I really hope the card works great for you and that you are happy with it's performance. :)

The parhelia isn't quite a normal consumer card, its more of a specialty buy, not really supposed to used for games anyway

Sure it is. 128mb version costs no more than an Ati or nVidia. The only drawback of course is the slow 3d performance. On the other hand no one beats Matrox in 2D at 1600x1200 or higher. There are some folks believe it or not that only care for 2d and its clarity.

$720 whoa man that is insane! my whole comp cost that much I think! You should have gotten a radeon9700 non pro for like $200 and its like 3/4 as fast too.

Gee, and to think I was trying to be nice to you. Why do you need to even bring up ATi in this thread? Why would you say something totally ridiculous like that? Youre obviously a challenged individual anyways to spend $720 on a card when you could get something just as good for less than half the price.

edit: Sorry. *takes a deep breath*
Hmm.. I really should have asked why is it that you have such a strong dislike for ATi products? Forgive the outburst.

Post back with your thoughts and performance of the card, I'm always on the lookout for something new to buy ;)

btw, which site did you get the card from? Only UK based one I'd seen the Creativ model at was Komplett, 405 and confirmed to arrive on 25/6/03.

i'm really sorry if i offended anyone with my dislike of ati but as this is an nvidia forum i wouldn't have joined unless i like nvidia above all over makes and i got my card from the creative official site http://uk.europe.creative.com/estore/category.asp?cate=4.

But i don't have anything against ATI it's just i really don't want their product near my computer
