The R300 is a great Oclocker, it's presently known as the R9700PRO, but the card I'd get, if I was in the market, is the R9700(non-pro)

As far as the NV30..your guess is as good as mine....

woops.... i thought that the 9700 was codenamed r275 or sumtin, got confused so i thought r300 was the next ati card... how good is the non pro 9700?

vid cards prices will drop dramatically and the new ati and nvidia cars will be out by then. Only time will show which one is the best

hmm.. just read a preview thing over at anandtech for the 9500 pro.. it looks like a pretty good overclocker.

it was able to hit 351/635..... although its only a refernce card but i hope the actual one will be like that, looks like a 200 suggested retail price, probably 170 actual... this could be a good oc choice...

Asking what will be the best overclocking card out in April 2003 is quite a silly question. A lot of cards will be out by then that aren't out now.. You can't get any real answers..yet...;)
