i have a sapphire 9700pro and wanted peoples opinions on wether its worth to upgrade to a 9800 pro. Im returning the 9700 pro as i've had problems with it (lots of green lines on the desktop every (approx.) 10th boot).

Is it worth spending another £60 for the 9800 pro instead of just swapping my card for a new 9700 pro?

thanks

I heard somewhere on the fourms that ATI is planning on releasing 3 new card sometime this fall/winter. If anything you should wait till they come out and the prices will plummet on the 9800's.
