My current video card Sapphire 9800np clocked at 432/380 Somebody from another forum wants to buy it because he can't find 1 that uses 2.86ns Samsung memory. He said he would pay 425 canadian for it, i'm trying to decide i bought it for 300 dollars canadian, but i have modded with a copper CPU cooler and 8 ramsinks. The thing is my retailer ran out of 9800np so if i sell this 1 i can't get another 1. What do you guys think is this worthy to sell i think if i sell it i'll make about 75 dollars? I guess if i sell this i'll have to buy a 9600pro. Is there a huge performance decrease from 9800np to 9600pro? Need you guy's opinion.

Yeah it was me, then i got a 9800np now a guy from the ncix forums wants to buy it from me. Now i have to choose between either a 9600pro or a 9800XT, i don't really want top of the line right now because i want to wait for NV40 and R420. So I hope 9600pro can last me 'til June maybe July next yr.

Thanks for pointing me that way but they only carry 3.0 Infineon ones, not Samsung memory. THAT REALLY SUCKS.

i called ncix, ntcw, and dangeo, they said they only have 3.0ns infineon. NCIX says i could go check they have 7 in stock. So I think i'll go and see if they have 2.86ns Samsung.

Get a hercules 9800np. They all have samsung memory from what the guys in the ocuk forum say. And copper ramsinks too. :) BTW did that flash work ok and did it give you a better memory overclock?

Sell sell sell it. Allready You sold your last one for $800 cdn. Sell that for 425. Buy TI4200 that will get you till next May or June. Then you can buy whoever has the top card by then.

Whats wrong with infineon?
I know all the usual stories but I have a sapphire infineon NP that hits XT speeds without artifacts. I run it at pro speeds though to be on the 'safe' side.

I just tell it like it is and some can't handle it. If your experience is different, well congratu-fukulation.

Nobody's saying you're lying, i'm just saying you can't flash to the pro's bios.

Still trying to decide between Powercolor 9700pro and Sapphire 9600pro Fireblade, their's about 90 dollars difference after tax. So still not too sure, i really want to wait for the NV40 or R420, i'm not sure if 9600pro could hold on 'til winter next year.

The price of NV40/R420 to drop a little.
