I just installed a R9800NP in my system, and damn, does Halo look awesome! I mean, it looked good on my R8500, but now with the R9800, wow!

I've never seen anything like it. Amazing.

Can't wait for Doom3 and HL2.

yes, thats a decent step up...
though not as large as my Geforce2pro -> r9800pro :D
All i need now is a cpu that can keep up!

enjoy.

Whoa... thats quite some jump!
I bet the video card is sucking twice the power that the CPU is...

and at least he knows his system aint graphics card limited! :smile:

well ATI has been renown for some time to have excellent image quality... especially the radeon series of products.

So IQ cannot improve, as such.

However as you go from a 9500/9600 to a 9800 you get alot more performance, so you can actually <b>USE</b> high levels of AA and Ansio realistically in games.
So in that respect IQ does improve.

I wouldn't dream of not using 4xAA now! :smile:
