Crucial Technology, introduced the Crucial Radeon 9700 Pro video card, powered by ATi technology and featuring 128MB 2.86 nanosecond (350MHz) double data rate (DDR) synchronous DRAM (SDRAM). The card complements Crucial’s existing video card line.
The video card is available on Crucial’s Web site at www.crucial.com and is currently priced at US$369.89. All Crucial video cards come with a limited lifetime warranty, free second-day shipping within the contiguous US (for a limited time), and Crucial’s renowned customer service and technical support.
Starting at a price point of US$369.89 with free second day shipping makes this card a pretty good deal for those of you who are shopping for a 9700. A quick check of some price search engines does suggest that you might be able to latch on to a 9700 Pro that is OEM/White Box for between $310 and $340. Of course the warranty will not be a good as a solution from a source like Crucial.
