I have a question I am hoping someone can help me with. I have a P4 Northwood with HT running at 3.06 ghz with 533 FSB and 512 megs DDR PC3200 and was wondering if I will see noticeable improvements in using a Radeon 9800 Pro I just purchased off Ebay as appose to the 5800 Ultra? The reason I really want to change is I collect graphics cards and the Ultra is very hard to find and I use my machine quite a lot. I want to put the 5800 Ultra away in storage for my collection and use the 9800 Pro for everyday gaming since it will not be that hard to replace in case of a failure. Really, my question is, will the 9800 Pro be just as compatible with older games as my Ultra is? I have found the Ultra to be excellent for old and new games and want to keep that ability. Even if not a noticeable improvement, I would be happy with the same speed and same ability to work with older titles just as well. My 9800 Pro is on its way so when it arrives I guess I can test it myself and see, but I am impatient and would like to know what users here think about both cards. Thanks in advance!
