"ATI; Quality Hardware, drivers and support...No."4.0 starson
Pros: Lower wattage than 9800 LOWER. More powerful than th 9800 and even the 6800 in most cases. Works well with a variety of games, even OpenGL powered ones.
Cons: Lack of 3.0 Pixel Shader support, this would've given it another unbeatable lead over Nvidia. The drivers are just, bad. Support is nearly non-existent in many instances.
