Hi there. I am after a 9800, SE, Pro or XT AGP Model Graphics Card.

I am looking to pay £15 to £20 inc P&P by PayPal.

I would prefer it if it was a 256bit version as I've heard 128 bit versions aern't very good.
Must be working.
Tim

Hi mate,

I have a Ati Radeon 9800xt 256mb 256bit sat here doing nothing. It's a bare card only but works perfectly!

£15 is a bit low but I will happily accept £30 Incl first class delivery so I've got £25 left in my pocket. This is the best of the 9800series :)

Here's a pic:

I will consider it but I'd like to see what others offer.

jizzm is selling a 9800 Pro for £20 in this thread (no pics posted so far) - you'll have to ask him/her if it's a 256-bit card or not though.

Bear in mind you probably don't want an SE then - these were either running four pipelines (instead of eight) or 128bit instead of 256bit memory. For the models with reduced pipelines it was possible to try a softmod and enable the additional four pipelines as the 9800SE's however the success rate of this was variable and on the few 9800SE cards I had none of them went to perfect 9800s. These 9800SE's were standard 9800s but due to defects in the silicon, some of the rendering pipelines were damaged so rather dump them ATi just disabled the quad that included the faulty pipelines and sold them as 9800SEs.

As you're probably aware the 9800XT above is the fastest of the 9xxx series, the XT name was a little misleading in a way...should have been called the 9900 really.

Unfortunately I can't help you with a card itself as none of my 9800s are working any more.

Spot on Johnmcl7! 9800XT was the best card in it's time!

How many did you have & what did you do with them all John?! Fried them up for breakfast one day? :-D

They were all AIW 9800SE's (think there was three of them?) with the four pipelines disabled, the first one just died completely out of the blue, the second one did something similar and the third actually caused the PC to shut down as it was booting. The annoying part was the last one I thought was a problem with the power supply in the house as I'd just moved as the machine would power up after a few attempts. However it was the graphics card and although the fault had started a couple of weeks within the warranty but by the time I realised it was the graphics card I was just out of warranty and no return.

Anyway the moral of the story and relevance to this thread is I wouldn't bother with the 9800SE's....I don't know if I was just exceptionally unlucky or what, as the cores were not good silicon to start off with I do wonder if that affected long term reliability (my cards were used in different machines). SE in graphics card terms means 'Slow Edition' which is often 64 bit memory, reduced hardware (less pipelines) or just far lower clocks.

Can't wait to finally be able to play some games on my PC, I've got an Athlon 64 3700+ 939 with a ECS AGP motherboard, 1gb of RAm and the thing that gives me the reason to buy your graphics card, a Geforce 3 Ti 200 - piece of ****.

The 9800XT can supposedly run Crysis okay at lowish resoloutions with mixed settings which sounds good.

I await your PM about the Bank Transfer thing.

i really doubt 9800 can run crysis

#19

#20
Yep. Found a mag in WHSmiths when I was 9 called 'Custom PC'. Ever since then I've been hooked and subscribed. Great mag if you ask me.

Might try and get an X2 and maybe some more RAM when the prices go rock bottom lol.

How many RAM slots free in your motherboard Tim, & what type of RAM does it take?
#22
It has 4 slots for RAM and currently has 4 x 256mb in it. It takes DDR RAM.

#23
I was hoping you'd say 2 free as I have 2x256Mb PC3200 modules that I don't really need. A year ago I had a similar setup to yours, until I purchased a 1Gb stick off eBay making it 1.5Gb in total.
#24
Hehe just saw a 9800XT go on ebay for £52. lol
#25
i saw one go for £19 last week,
#26
An XT or a Pro?
#27

#33

When is it worth complaing to RM?
#34
Recieved today, turns out he sent it to the wrong address, however person he sent it too told him pretty promptly and he sent it to me... All is forgiven Royal Mail...(lol!) Card Worked Fine.

Positive Feedback left TIm.

After a bit of tweaking in Catalyst Control Centre, I have been able to run Crysis @ low @ 1280x1024 at a decent frame rate. When I say decent I mean you can't see any lag of the image etc. I had a couple of problems with objects and buildings not showing at first but I eventually solved it in the Control Centre. If I set the res any lower it looks ****. GRAW seems to be a bit problematic but I hope I fixed it when I changed the Settings.

Tim. Crysis Rocks (S'far as the demo tells me):-D
