Even the Geforce 4 Ti4200 is faster than a FX 5600 Ultra (In most DirectX 8.0 games and benchmarks).

If you buy the 9800, then your cpu is gonna be a big bottleneck.
The cpu you have won't have enough power to push the 9800.

It will work, you will notice the difference, But your cpu will hold the 9800 back.

Depending on what m/board you have, you need to upgrade the cpu, ram, and graphics, and maybe m/board too.

def the radeon 9800 pro, but consider upgrading the cpu like oni_666 said.

its true that one can change the world
