    Well fella i got a 9800pro for 2 quid more from Ocuk with my solo, since they accept it, gr8 card go get it now. nough said.

    Ps: its runs Very hot on defualt cooling (jeez put finger on back of core and then ram after some hefty hours of halo and its hotter than my SouthBridge (which gets hot!) gonna upgrade cooling in a month or so to a cpu cooler after ive finished burning it in ) *keep eye out for that mod, coming soon*)

    OK I will definitely get this, but one more question.
    I need to know FOR SURE what cooling it's got... ATI fan or Sapphire fan? Someone who has one please let me know.

    I have to say that I've just swapped from an ATI 9700pro to a Sapphire 9800 pro and the ATi was a lot quieter. Sapphire's got quite a high pitched hum.

    Im no sure what fan the Sapphire 9800 pro lite has, but here is a picture of what my one looks like it has an ATI sticker on it so it's most probably just the ATI fan..
