Looks interesting, I was considering a GF4Ti and fitting a Zalman GPU cooler but from what I've read the 9000 isn't too far behind so this could reduce costs considerably. Shame the 128MB version isn't in stock as it's only a few £ more - I've heard that ordering out of stock stuff from ebuyer isn't a good idea.

How do the 9000's compare to the 7200's?

Did I read about some true 10-bit overlay pipeline? I can't remember if the outcome was that all Radeons had it anyway?

What's the improvement for
DVD/HTPC
Gaming.

cheers,
Rob.

Im thinking of upgrading to the 9000 (not pro as that has a fan :D).

Whats the performance like in 3D?, and I presume you can hook say the primary display to the projector and the secondary to a flat panel etc.??

do good prices on Graphics cards - and carry good stock.

e.g


Hercules 3D Prophet 9000 128MB DDR
AGP, ATI Radeon 9000, TV-Out, Retail

GBP 87.75 inc. VAT

Reports of the 9000s are coming in at www.avsforum.com, and most seem to say a positive improvement over previous radeon cards. I`ll be buying one from novatech, which is nearer for me (25 mins by car)

http://www.novatech.co.uk/'

probably get mine tomorrow. I`d hold off if you already have a radeon card though, until more reviews are in. 3D performance is less than 8500 but more than 7000 and 7500.

This card looks like it has a nice Ble Orb fan too.

If you have a window in your Tower then it will look cool.

Many thanks.

From what I understand, you can connect a second monitor to the DVI output using a DVI-VGA dongle, but don`t take that as gospel, cos I haven`t tried it. I`m not sure also how this would affect dvd playback on the primary display either.

The radeon VE comes with a DVI>VGA dongle, I dont see why the Radeon 9000 does not too?. And yes if you have a HTPC you could have the DVI>VGA dongle connected to your monitor on your HTPC and the primary VGA on the radeon hooked up to your projector for the best picture quality. Both screens would be visible and when you play the dvd the movie will only be shown on your projector (primary) display...unless your using software rendering and not radeon hardware assist.

I think the built by ATI come with the dongle, but the powerred by/OEM versions do not have a dongle. Worth checking before you buy

Chris,

I just phoned the Ebuyer "Customer Help Line" to enquire about the dongle. There are three automated options, none of which covers "enquire about the technical spec of a product", so I tried option 3, "Place an order".

A helpful recorded chap said, "We strongly believe in empowering our customers to order via our website. Please go to..."

Obviously they don't believe in empowering their customers to find put about things before placing the order.

I think most online companies invest in people on their email support rather than phones. Try emailing them??.

I remember seeing a Radeon VE (supergrace) in Computer [email protected] and that came with a VGA>DVI dongle.
