Hi,

But that's supposed to happen to your video card with the Spit.

i.e. 10 fps, jerky b&w images of chipper fellows, with handlebar moustaches, smoking pipes whilst waiting for a bally good ding **** with the enemy over Blightly before sending them packing into the briny.

Cheers,
Wing Commander Urqhart-Smythe-Farquar.

I'm getting scared-- This is about the 10th GF4 Ti4200 breakdown I've read about here, and that's the very card that I have!

ATi have reduced the price of the 128mb 9800 Pro to ‚£150 in the UK, don't know about the rest of the world.But either way its a bargain.

I would get one but I bought a Radeon 9600XT 256mb 4 months ago.When I brought the subject up with the Mrs she used an umberella to beat me into a corner shouting "NO,NO down,bad boy!!"

Go with a Radeon, the prices are dropping, Ill be getting one once I finish up my rig, I currently have an FX5200, and a Radeon 7000 backup in case it goes out. I know the 7000 wont handle FB but it will do with the rest of my games till I can get the 9800.
