I am thinking about upgrading to R9800 Pro (thanks to some great responses to my first post) and was cruising on pricewatch the other day.

I was a little overwhelmed with the number of different kinds of 9800 Pro's.

I want to make sure I am getting the right upgraded card when I talk to the folks who are building my new computer for me.

Basically if I ask for the ATI model with 256 bits of memory interface I should be good right?

Thanks for any clarification for this somewhat of a n00b

It will answer most of your question. Usually the Built By ATI version are on top of the others. But there is other good makers too (Sapphire and Gigabyte are good choice too).
