anybody bought a radeon 9700 pro yet?
which brand, and how does it clock?
I'm back home, and after three full months of [H]-spending stop, i wanna know how these beasts work

since nvidia30 based solutions won't be showing up until februari 2003, this ati should be what's needed to work thru the game-onslaught end this year.

well, it's here, no 2.66/2.8 though :( , so that'll have to wait.

I can try probably tomorrow or tuesday with the radeon,
I can go with a 3.2 ghz and the radeon, that should get me arount 18 k I hope.
we'll see.

radeon doesn't seem to wanna work :-(

I formatted and reinstalled xp with the 9700 and everything went fine.
installing the catalysts on the cd as well as the official ones results in black screen and reboot...
anybody have any clues??

that card is a Club 3D ?
try the drivers on their website :

I orderd one yesterday after your email :)
A powercolor at Germany for 489, It's a BBA.

There's only ONE goal ... ONE ...


The Senile Doctor 7th September 2002 21:06

sadist = bosw8er

this card is utterly dead.
and the 2.66 I wanted won't be in for another two weeks.

Could've been above 18000 now too...


I am bored with bad hardware that never even works ???
