    Crucial RADEON 9800 Pro 128MB

    Is this a good flavour of the Radeon 9800 Pro?

    Any flavour is good

    I ordered a Raddy 9800 Pro from lowestontheweb yesterday for £125 after selling my 9600 Pro for £70. Bargin tbh...

    Read some of the reviews on the page and apparently the cards could well be R360 cores which means the possibility of a XT flash - bonus!

    Just have to get me some 3rd party cooling and I'm set.

    128bit flavour is not a good flavour! Check the spec carefully and make sure it has the high bandwidth 256bit memory bus. If in doubt ask here on Hexus and link to the card. Generally no difference in performance between any of the brands so it's only features like VIVO or bundled games/software. Some may have silent cooling solution or upgraded cooling and RAM heatsinks and that sort of thing. I like cheap OEM - just a card in bag in a box and maybe a driver CD although I always downloading the latest of the website anyway.

    Not to be confused with the amount of RAM which can be 128Mb or 256Mb and IMO 128Mb is all that is needed. Once you start looking at 256Mb you have to start asking yourself if x800pro isn't a better investment.

    Well my 9800 Pro arrived today

    Spiffy indeed but to make it even better -

    I went for 24hr delivery on the card, was here in two days so lowestontheweb refunded my delivery costs. Nice of them

    Don't worry about getting a 256mb 9800pro, a 128mb 9800pro is still a fine card, and you wont notice much difference at the moment.

    Crucial are as good as any, and you wont have any problems if it goes wrong. Superb RMA process.

    By far the best choice of card on the market at the moment, in terms of money \ performance.

    I think he means the memory bus. No need for 256 on a 9800pro though leave that for the x800's

    Just check the product specification page and look for 256bit memory interface or bus. If the retailer does not provide this information you will have to ask them to confirm that the memory interface is 256bit and not 128bit. Most retailers will state this information clearly to avoid any confusion and unecessary returns.
