I'm going to buy a DP2.5G5 and I've found out that, when using my Educator discount and macmall, I can get the FX5200 AND the 9800 Special edition (faster than the XT for mac) for $30 more than just getting the 9800XT built in. So regardless, my G5 is going to be equipped with the FX5200 to start with. My question is, should I get the 9800 Special Ed (heh) card for mac, or wait for something better and spend my $370 on that? My feelings are that with the release of the X800 and FX6800, the 9800 is a big bunch of crap. However, I'll run into more performance walls with the 5200 waiting for the new generation of cards to come out for mac (but I can deal with it for a while). I'm willing to wait till september for a new video card (I can deal with the FX5200 until then), do you think the new cards (FX6800, X800) will be out for Mac by then? [note this is different from my previously posted question in that I know how long I'm willing to wait] For those who don't know about the x800 and FX6800, have some benchmarks!: http://www6.tomshardware.com/graphic/20040504/index.html . .
