I agree that gaming on a 9800 is a tad... outdated. But I'm waiting to see what's Vista-certified by ATI in a few months before I start plunking down cash on a new video card. I've gotta upgrade a few things in my box and that's one of them. The timing couldn't be better. So I guess for now, I'm going with the 360 version.
not that simple im afraid my friends. 9800 pro and 6800 gt are 2 different bus slots if you didnt know
not only would he had brought a new vid card, he would need a new mother board, possibly a new cpu, new ram since older versions do Dimm ram i think its called. and a new and higher watt power supply
EDIT* if you ARE willing to put down that kind of money, wait till this summer when amd releases am2 socket. and ATI has released their x2000 series with like shader model 4 and i would think 1gb cards
