Hey all.
Im looking at buying a new video card, as the title suggests. Currently I have my eyes on the new VisionTek XTASY 9800 XT 256MB. Has anyone heard anything about this card, I dont want to buy a POS, or something that is going to make my life difficult. Ive seen prices but havnt found a place that sells the 9800 XT, only the 9800 Pro. Any opinions?

TigerDirect (http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=673883&Sku=V261-3026&CatId=1096) has it.

NCIX (http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?majorcatid=101&minorcatid=108) has other 9800xt cards as well.

Both are Canadian sites.


I haven't had any experience with VisionTek before. I was going to get VisionTeks but I picked up the ASUS version instead.

I've got a built-by-ATI 9800non-pro, and I'm quite pleased with it. Personally, I've never heard anything about VissionTek though.

Some people are having trouble with their "lifetime" warranty, which is really the only thing you would want it for over the other brands. My suggestion would be to go with the ATI version. Stay away from the ASUS version as well.
