dont support GeCube. For some reason i hated it. The graphic card i bought was a 128BIT 256MB 9800PRO card. The box didn't even state that i was 128BIT. all it says was 9800PRO card with 256MB. Its like omfg? I felt like i got cheated. Worst case my graphic fan got spoiled within 6months after purchase. Checked the fan. No dust no nothing. In the end it was the fan that was spoilt

I have never been a fan of ASUS as the NEVER follow Reference Design and are always doing their own thing to cards

Uhh, I have an idea, maybe a 9600? It's faster than the 9550 and an XT is like $40 more than a 9550. I'm just saying, I was about to buy a 9550 when I first built this computer but found out the price of the 9600, then I saw a cheap 9800, and now I'm looking at a cheap X850 lol (all of this within 2 months). I'm just saying, you probably shouldn't be like me and keep going up but if you can afford $40 more (I know about tight budgets, trust me, $40 is a lot) then go with a 9600 XT (ATI, Visiontek and Sapphire are great companies).

I also Reccomend Sapphire as they build ATI's cards for them anyway. I had planned on buying a Sapphire X800XL but the Powercolor I have was a deal at the same price so only reason Im not still using a Sapphire(previous 9800 was Sapphire and lives on in the Missus PC at XT)
