I recently just had my GF4 Ti4600 Ultra Delux (Asus) crash on me for the 3rd time. I am thinking it is time to get a new card. I am just wondering what to get though.

I was going through the specifications, and realized that the FX5900Ultra was greater on paper then the 9800Pro. I am asking if anyone can give me some insight on what to buy, as I am not one to get lower end cards.
I plan on playing HL2, Doom 3, I currently play Star Wars Galxies, UT2003, and other high demanding graphical games.

Thanks for the time.

u should be posting in the graphic card section.....
Most will tell u to go 9800 pro. DONT get the FX line.
too many performance issues currently. cook around this forum. Most people seen to have radeons, I reccomend the 9800 pro. got 1 and runs really well and overclocks if ure into that.
