AIW 9800pro vs 9800pro?

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Nobody's Hero, Sep 26, 2003.

  1. Which one should I invest my money in? I'm moving from a GeoForce 2 MX 400.
    I want to get the most out of HL2 when it arrives.

    They are the same card except one has a tv tuner AIW 9800 Pro and one
    doesn't 9800 Pro.

    Just get the pro if you have the money. The AIW includes TV capture, but if
    you don't plan on using it, don't waste your money. If you want to save
    some money, get a 9800 non pro. Very overclockable and identical to the pro
    except for default clock speed.

    The cool part about AIW is its PVR. Think TiVo. This is a nice feature
    and I don't have to pay subscription. ;)

    Cool. Either one then for HL2. I loved HL. It was one of my all time
    favourites. Looking forward to HL2.
