I currently have an Asus p4p800se motherboard with a Radeon 9800xt graphics card. However, as I want to be able to play some of the newer games such as Pes 2008, Crysis, Bioshock etc... I need a card with shader model 3.0. I'm thinking of a Radeon X1950XT 512mb or Radeon X1950pro 512mb. I know they are not DX10 cards but I don't think we're actually gonna benefit from DX10 support for quite a while - I'm still using XP anyway!
Which one should I go for and would the cards work ok with my ageing Asus p4p800se. I'll probably replace the motherboard (and cpu etc) soon but don't have the money to buy everything at the moment.
Thanks in advance for any help
