ATI 9800 or 9800pro

Recommended Posts

Which one should I get? The pro is $100 more. Is there a performance difference or is it just offer more features? Im currently using an 8500 but would like to improve my graphics. The ATI looks like the majority choice over the GeForce in this forum.thanks,Tommy

Double your ram. You really need 512mb. Video card depends on your budget. If you're a bit tight, get the 9800NP. Can't go wrong. Start thinking about upgrading the processor. That'll be your next bottleneck after you add ram and change video cards.

I agree with Bigshot. Go with the NP, and then put the $100.00 you save over the Pro version to upgrade other system components. RAM is the first... 512 is the minimum I'd do. Then the CPU, then...Man, ya just gotta love this flightsimming. :-)
