Default Sapphire or Hercules 9800 ??

First ordered Sapphire, change it and pre-ordered the Hercules
9800Pro.

But saw this

I think the problems go both ways. My Sapphire 9800 has been flawless however a friends ATI built 9700 pro has the wavy/shimmering ling issue. I think its luck of the draw.

Shimmering lines only appear at certain resolutions and refresh rates. And as far as I know it's a universal problem.

Since I used the Hercules for a short while, I only can say this :

Get it now that you can and argue later if you should or not.
