The fact that the 9800 XT comes with a coupon for Half-Life 2 makes this card that much more worth while. If you already planned on purchasing HL2, consider your purchase of the 9800 XT $50 cheaper! If you like Tomb Raider games, you will also enjoy the latest installment which comes free with the PowerColor Radeon 9800 XT. Personally, I never liked Tomb Raider, and I feel the inclusion of Tomb Raider: AOD should have been rethought. Regardless, PowerColor has a great package for a great card.
ATI has had their share of problems in the past, but over time, they have shown that they can make a powerful card, and an incredible set of drivers to match. Overdrive is a cool, although a bit overrated new feature to allow people to squeeze a little extra power out of the card. VPU Recover is an extremely nice feature that I would like to see adopted by other companies such as NVidia. All in all, I must say that this is the first graphics card in a long time that has really caught my attention and held it. The PowerColor Radeon 9800 XT receives "TheTechLounge Recommended" award!
