I think so.
I had a 9800 and went to a 5900U.

I love mine. :)

That all depends on what's important to you. If you want the highest FSAA quality regardless of speed, you should have kept the 9500 Pro. If you want a faster card for current games, you did the right thing. If you wanted a faster card for Half-Life 2... that's debateable.

Why did you even bother to ask if you bought the card anyway? Kinda defeats the purpose, don't you think?

The 5900 is going to be a faster card overall, especially without AA or AF. But image quality with AA is going to go in favor of ATI. For what you spent on that 5900 Ultra, I think a 9800 Pro would have been a better choice. Or if you wanted to save some money, you could have bought a GeForce FX 5900 non-ultra. In most cases it's just as good as the ultra but costs a lot less.

I've got a 5900 Ultra. I love it. Very stable and highly overclockable in my opinion.

FX5900U > R9500Pro

5900U is considerably faster, but the R9500Pro will have better image quality

between them, I'd rather have the FX5900U

yep. after all, amount of memory has so much to do w/ speed(omg)


R9800PRO would have been a better choice, even w/ it's meager 128MB of memory:wimp:

256megs of video memory adds to bragging rights, but what resolutions did you plan to play your games at? 256megs of texture space is really only beneficial for 1600x1280 or higher res with AA/AF maxed. And don't expect the world's greatest FPS if you play at those settings unless you're runnning an Athlon64 ;)

So in short, if you're like most people playing between 1024x768 and 1600x1280, save your money becayse the 128mb card should be enough for you.

Same here, though in this environment I'd rather just stick with the 9500 Pro and see what turns up with next gen, since it's right around the corner. :D

hehe. I think Ill wait too, and see whats after the FX series.

If anything, the next best thing, will lower their prices. :D

My next upgrade will probably be a barton/memory combo.

:eek:

Don't expect to run those settings on an Athlon 64 either. I have a Athlon 64/9800Pro and I just tried UT2003 Antalus 6 bots. I tried 16X12X32, all highest settings on game, performance or quality highest AA/AF on card drivers.
No dice. Teens to mid30s either setting. It probably would have been better with a 256 card, but I bet not what I'd call "playable" for a fps.
