x700 or 9800 pro xt
I bought a graphics card for my computer just a little while ago, and i'm looking to get one for my brother for his birthday too (he bought me 12 x-box games for my birthday, so i gotta get him something good), he loves computer games and I know hes got like a radeon 9500 or something like that. He plays the same game as me since we share it, HL:2 and Doom 3. Which graphics card is better for these purposes. I know theirs a lot of which graphics card is better questions, i tried searching and nothing really gave me enough information to draw the conclusion of which one is better.
I mainly ask this question because at my local bestu buy the 9800 pro xt is more expensvie, yet i thought the x700 was a newer graphics card.
