View Full Version : Which is best buy
1.A boxed PNY FX 5900 128mb at $220 shipped or
2.A Hercules Radeon 9800 pro 256MB oem 335 shipped.
I have an FX 5900 and love it but need a new card for other computer.

I'd go with the 9800 pro in a 128 mb version :P But that could be just me.

I'd definitely go with the 5900. Saving $115 dollars is nice, and sorry, the 9800 is not worth a $115 premium over a 5900.

Can you find a 9800 pro 128mb and if so how much is it? The 9800 pro is definitly better but whether its $115 better is argueable.
I can get a oem radeon pro 128mb for $305 shipped.
But would not the 256mb one for $335 be better deal
I did bench mark my friends 9800 pro 256mb board aginst my XFX 5900
and I hate to say it but the FX got beat pretty bad in FS 2004 and FIFA 2004 , Lockon, Mafia well you get it almost ever game 5 to 15 fps faster
thats a lot in some games like FS 2004.
