Excerpt: ATI Technologies Inc., www.ati.com $399 (estimated for board) Solid performer Doesn't support Shader Model 3.0 Frame rates at this resolution are very playable, so if you can't bring yourself to part with and additional $100 to get the high-end XT version, the Radeon X800 Pro still gets you a lot of performance.
Summary: With Doom3 now upon us I know there are a lot of people out there looking to upgrade video hardware. The X800 Pro is the most affordable of the next generation cards and will run the game in full detail on a PC with a processor of 3GHZ or more. Consider the resolutions this card is capable of running in and the fact that 6X AA and 16X Anisotropy are fully usable in most of the games we tested at 1280x1024 resolution. You are getting a amazing value for your money here.
Pros: Super fast graphics performance twice that of the last series of cards, Awesome looking graphics board will make you the envy of all your friends, If you are looking for a Doom3 card you are looking in the right place, HDTV cable included, 6xAA and 16X Anisotropy finally achievable in today's games, Overdrive mode gets that last extra bit of juice out of your card
Cons: No games in the bundle, not even a Half Life 2 coupon, Quite pricy at $399 but you do get what you pay for
