Yep... the 9800 in a Athlon rig is top notch.
In a new intel rig... "well" Not so good.
The 5900 in a intel rig is going to kick butt.

I'm just going to add that I bought a GeforceFX 5800 non-ultra and am happy with it. It was US$20-50 more expensive than the 9700s (non-pro). The choice was simple really, even though it was more expensive and performed a little slower in some tests & games, I know my computer will be stable. Four years ago, I stupidly bought a S3 Savage 4 because it was Faster and Cheaper than the nVidia TNT. I regreted that every day I owned it and have only bought nVidia for home use ever since. BTW, at work, I have almost every video card ever made, so I know a little about them. Also, I was upgrading from a Geforce3, so the performance difference was significant. If I had a Geforce4, I'd probably wait until something more exciting came along.

its a great card, its not the fastest in every games every setting, but it offers best software support, driver quality that not any other non-nvidia gaming card can come close with.

OMG, it never ceases to amaze me...
Must you turn every thread you participate in this direction? I understand you, and perhaps a very, very small percentage of users have had a problem w/ a particular chipset that is no way indicitave of other users using exactly the same setup. I'm NOT saying this is user error.

I've had some compatability problems inthe past as well...but have you noticed how I don't continue to bring it up at every opportunity...nor does anyone else? It would be a pretty sad place if we all acted this way....

I love mine.
With this baby at 560 core/1100 memory nothing
can touch it with no AA/AF.
So you play without AA and AF?

Ummm, I think the reason the 5800vanilla can OC to 5800u speeds is because the 5800vanilla uses ddr1 (I could be mistaken), while the ultra uses ddr2, wich from what I understand, is the reason the 5800 used the dustbuster. I love my 5800 and will love it forever...err...at least until tomarrow when I sell it and bring home my pretty little 5900u. Benchies for 5900 will be forthcoming...

No, im pretty sure it uses DDR2.

Otherwise, the NV35 cards wouldnt be anything special at all.

Bwuh? The ASUS 5800 non-ultra seems to have the FX Flow and copper heatsinks on the RAMs. http://www.asus.com/products/vga/v9900/overview.htm

I thought all GeForce FX 5800 non-ultras have a metal black and chrome fan, while only the Ultras have a FX Flow copper fan.

skoprowski: does your ASUS non-ultra have the copper and plastic FX Flow, or the black and silver fan?

The Asus had the black fan. If you look closely- the plain 5800 and the new 5900 Ultra has the extact same fan. The noise should be equivalent- which is low.

The place I bought the 5800 is offering to give me a full refund towards the new evga 5900 Ultra- it's tempting.... I don't know if I can do it.
