The original 9000 (except for the 9500 Pro and up, & excluding the 9600 Pro/9800 series) series was a joke like the GF4 MX & 5200s are now. Like I showed before, outside of the 9100 Pro, the whole 9000 series should be priced much lower in our opinion. You wonder why we (at the shop) are getting grumpy? For reliability/stability we ALWAYS go with ATI. The pricing to performance ratio over the previous series is starting to cost ATI some sales worldwide. "A rumor that ATI and NVIDIA met to discuss cooling the competition down until card sales start catching up with the production market is floating around, NVIDIA won't comment."
