Default PowerColor 9800XT - Upgrading to DirectX 9

Damn this videocard is fast!

Quote:
While most of the reviews out there give you an idea how fast a video card is, almost none show you what the actual visual difference is between a DX8 and a DX9 capable video card. In this article we'll show you what improvements you get when upgrading to a DX9 graphics card, the Powercolor R9800XT (XR98T-D3)
