Not to mention it's intrinsic future value as a collectable...sort of like the Edsel... :lol:

9700 Pro is a more cost-effective choice. I'd only recommend getting the 5800 if you *must* have an nVidia product...otherwise it's a worse value.

Yeah if i get it retail it will cost me 259 for the MSI Fx or 269 for the Hurc 9700Pro. I don't really want to, but i could use my credit card to get an MSI FX5900 for 290+Shipping. Would you say the Fx5900 is the better buy?

Full steam ahead with the 5900, I'd say... :)

if taking speed as factor and you don't mind playing games at 16X12 wiht 2AA and 8AF then sure get teh 5800 however if you want to suck it all the wya up with the best IQ and the best Speed with it on high Resulotion then get the 9700...
if i were you i would have gone with NV because of doom III and future gaming...
p.s just saw that you could get 5900...
WT$%$# ??? GET it ASAP :)
it's the best :cool:
na really i'm sure that it will serve you well

Don't really care about FSAA so long as i have excellent AF & 1024x768+ rez :)

Where can you get that MSI 5900 for 290? That's a good price...
