Question about the Sapphire 9800 video cards
Posted on 2003-11-06
Okay, i'm going to be buying a video card very very soon. I have been looking at the Radeon 9600 or 9700 (9800 is above my budget) but I have read a little bit about the Sapphire 9800. I have seen this card for as cheap as 150 bucks! is this too good to be true? Does this card actually compare with the ATI Radeon 9800? I'm not too familiar with the Sapphire line of products but they seem to get decent reviews. If anyone here has experience with this card it would be a great help. I read somewhere that it only supports 4 pipelines, is this true? Also I have read somewhere that with soft modding it actually can compare with a top of the line VC... again... is this true? If this is all true (except for the pipelines) then it will be my next video card!
Also if someone knows the URL for Sapphire it would be a great help as well.
