I am one of those people that can't afford to go out and buy the latest and greatest video cards, but I also want to have a card that can hold its own in some of the newest games. What I would like to know is this: Has anyone heard of a 9800SE and if you have, do you know if it is any good? I never got a 9700 pro because they stayed at around $230 when they got to their lowest, and I really wanted to get one but they never quite got to my price range. I found this and it is really tempting me.
I wanted to see if anyone knew if it was a poor excuse for a 9800 or if it is actually halfway decent. If it performs similar to a 9700 pro I would be all over it, but if it is more like a 9600 I think I'll wait. I know a 9600 is better than a GF4 TI4600, but I don't think it's really so much better that I need to fork out $190 for the minor improvement.
