Went to Bestbuy to pickup a 9700 pro but they wernt in stock. Its been a week and they still don't have them. So went to newegg and they dont have it either.

I did find a Xtasy 9800 Pro @ eCost for only 379 w/ free ground shipping.
The 9700 would be 321 after tax.

You think I should spend the extra 50 bucks and get the 9800 pro?

How reliable is Visiontek now?
Let me know what you think.

Thanks

Visiontek is just fine. I think all companies use ATi's board layout cept Hercules. So, a Visiontek is a Connect3d is a Powercolor is a Saphhire is an ATi.

You're basically paying the extra $50 for an updated architecture (better at most everything than the 9700) and 53mhz on the core and 57mz on the memory.

Worth it, in my opinion (which is why I got one) but the decision is, of course, up to you.

my friend just bought a visiontek Xtasy tonight, it comes with no games or anything, a interesting plastic case, looks exactly like my Powercolor.
his OC'd to 475/390 with my watercooling on it.
he's playing around on it right now downloading all the DX9 demos from ATI.
