    hmmm too costly

    so do I buy a new monitor, RAM, and HD upgrade or buy a Radeon 9800.
    seems way over priced.

    re :sweet (2)

    the only way ati will realize that we don't let them s**** us, is if we simply don't buy their overpriced baloney.

    re: PC version

    But the PC version you mentioned has a faster engine clock and memory clock (9800 XT). The Mac version is a rebranded 9800 PRO which had an MSRP of $399. It has been EOL'd on the PC. ATI is basically selling us leftover inventory.
