carmack has commented that the 8500 should hardware wise be faster than a 
gforce4 fro doom3
Unforntuanlty its let down by drivers.

well i say 134 quid for the almost fastest card is pretty dam good!
And drivers are getting better all the time....

  Hercules Radeon 8500 LE 64MB DDR (AGP) - OEM (GX-007-HE) 
  This is the same chipset as the much acclaimed ATI Radeon 8500 above, but 
clocked at the lower speed of 250MHz core and 500MHz DDR-SDRAM. For those 
looking for a bargain this is certainly worth looking at - often capable of 
being overclocked to the speed of the full ATI Retail product at a much lower 
price.

  Check this review at X-bit Labs for a full comparitive review of the ATI 
Radeon 8500 and 8500LE
  Featuring :
  » TRUFORM?
  » SMARTSHADER?
  » Dual Display Support
  » Emboss, Dot Product 3 and Environment bump mapping
  » Spherical, Dual-Paraboloid and Cubic environment mapping
  » Fog effects, texture lighting, video textures, reflections, shadows, 
spotlights, LOD biasing and texture morphing
  » 250MHz core and 500MHz DDR-SDRAM
  and much more besides.




  Price:  £114.20  (£134.19 Including VAT at 17.5%)

    I recently lost the use of my bank card, through no fault of my own of 
course.  I was shot with a paintball (well many actually) and although I 
managed to avoid the bruise, it meant sacrificing the card as body armour.  
Shattered it into 3 bits, impressive.

     

    Anyway, Kerr & Duncan will vouch for this, all the time I have had an 
account with the Halifax they have denied me any kind of switch / solo / cheque 
book card.  I ordered another across the counter the other day, and its just 
turned up.  

     

    And they sent me a SOLO enabled card!, oh the joy of internet ordering is 
at last my own.  It?s a cool thing when you?ve never had the option.  The card 
is warm in my pocket, itching for it?s first use, be still my pretty the time 
is nigh.
