Thoughts on Radeon 8500????

  1. Building a new computer and Im on a strict budget. Im limiting the video card to $100. I found an 8500 125mb card for $99. I had a Rage Fury in my first computer and ATI really sucked when it came to drivers but Ive been reading thet they have gotten it together in that area. I was looking at gForce 3 cards but they seem to have gone up in price. The Xabre 400 Pro with 128mb is $100 and looks good but Im hesitant to try a new product. Thanks

    I love mine.

    I'd say go for it, it's really a nice card and blows any equivalent-priced GF3 out of the water.

    I'd also say stick with nVIDIA or ATi, just for the sake of compatibility.

    R8500 is the best video card I've ever owned.

    A.F. is awesome on this card. :)
