Ok, so I got my 9800 and was all excited. Put it in and my machine crashes on startup, then kernel panics the next time. I was able to get it to start from a CD and the HD has problems. Run disk repair and it says it's fixed. When I rescan it still shows it needs repair. Run disk repair it says it's fixed and the cycle continues. Oh well. Machine runs OK. Ok, lets try the 9800 at last. The OS feels great! Exposè actually feels smoother and faster. Great. But I didn't buy a near $400 graphics card for exposè. Now to try the 9800 on my favorite game in the world Ghost Recon. Absolutely no improvement in FPS. Nothing. Good thing is I can turn on shadows and max everything (1600x1200) with no real drop in FPS, so thats good. Now to try the nifty ATi Overdrives! NOPE! Try any of them, especially FSAA, (which looks amazingwhen it's on) and night vision becomes completely glitched and choppy. AARRGH. It's ok for the first game and then the glitching will not go away unless you restart the machine. Turning off ATi ovedrives does not work. I searched and found these to be common problems, but no real fixes. Has anyone found a solution? Any recommendations? I'm running 10.3.1.
