alot of people have said that the Radeon 8500 is better then the Radeon 9000... can someone explain why? because i am going to buy one pf the 2

The 8500 has more raw power than the 9000, thats the main reason. The 8500 can pump out more triangels/polygons pr sec than the 9000.

so i should go wit the 8500?

the question is, would it be good enough to run planetside if i took a couple of goodies out?

Yeah, it should be fine for PS. Get the 8500 if you can't afford a 9500 pro.

Culkid, wait about a month or so, THEN see what the prices are. Trust me. ;) Lots of ATI products are about to take a nosedive in price.

well i need to get it before PS comes out

Well, seeing the new announcement from Sony that puts the release date to May 20th, waiting a month or so should be okay :p
