Decided to try a necromancer. Just for fun. I am a little disapointed with the diversability choices. I hate how all necromancers look the same for instances. But still giving it a go.

For anyone curious. A radeon 9000 is significantly slower than a Radeon 8500.

If that's true I guess they did goof but does the radeon 9000 support directx 9 or anything graphic related the 8500 doesn't?

Nope. Exact same feature set. But less features/performance on a Radeon 9000.
