As of late, Gigabyte's performance has been something of a hit or miss affair. When Gigabyte gets it right, they do it big, however when a flawed product hits, it usually puts into question just how it could have happened. Take the Radeon 9700 Pro from Gigabyte. The overclocking and performance were fantastic with a great price tag. However, take the GA-7VAXP-A Ultra board; poor performance and compatibility put it right at the bottom. But today, it's another hit for Gigabyte.
The layout of the card is to the letter of the ATI specs so you know it's going to work and work properly at that. After all, if ATI can't get it right themselves, who else would? The overclocking of the card for a full pressed card was fantastic. Its software bundle, while small, is enough to keep you occupied enough till you get yourself some high-end games and take full advantage of the hardcore VPU you have brought yourself.
In all, the Gigabyte Radeon 9800 Pro 256 has taken it all when it comes to performance, style, overclocking and a good price tag.
Slightly high price
