    The XT always was aimed at those with more money than sense with the
    aim of evening up this ratio. It never was value for money. By the
    time that games are arriving that can use the extra oomph over the
    pro, the world has moved on again.

    The X800 XT PE on ati site will be $100 less than the 9800 pro 256 megger
    when it first came out that I bought luckily NOT at retail price.

    Plus selling my 9800 Pro 256 meger to a friend... and getting X800 XT PE
    below retail... so I think I saved a bundle for buying now.

    " Even funnier... http://www.ati.com/buy/pricespcusa.html "


    Maybe the last 9800 XT rolled off the production line a long time ago, and
    they think they are *collector's items*. I do hope the 9800 XT drops to
    <$200 once the X800 XT is available, as I was planning on buying one. After
    the 9800 Pro dropped in price, I figured the 9800 XT would soon go the same
    way.

    ATI's price for the 9800 Pro-128 is $249.95, the XT hasn't dropped a
    penny.

    How much does an X800 with passive cooling go for? You're not comparing
    apples to apples--the Sapphire "Ultimate" boards have passive cooling and
    Sapphire charges a premium for that feature.

    Yep... I noticed... every day it will be harder for the venders to
    dump them at a good price. Its a loss at this point for any vender
    who has 9800xts in stock.

    A vender dumping the 9800XT for $275 or less will RID them quickly,
    but by MID-JUNE, those same cards will be worth $200.

    Expect a FASTER X800-NON Pro to sell for about $275 in 3 months.

    Remember: In the USA - it is dangeroud to draw or write about Heir Bush in a negative way. The police or SS are called, people threaten to kill you. (What country is this again?)

    - 15yr old boy in Washington was disciplined for drawing such images.
    - White House blows cover of an undercover agent because her husband said there were no WMD (before the USA started the war) - her job was finding terrorist. (This makes sense?)
