Hi all,

Sofar only very few reactions came in... and today I received the other  
two cards. So now can offer:

Radeon 9600 XT 128 Mb (original sealed package)
Radeon 9700 PRO 128 Mb (only card + cables)
Radeon 9800 XT 256 Mb (original sealed package)

PC only, not for Macs though.

My idea was that when active developers here use ATI (as well) we might  
get insight in:

- what exactly goes wrong
- if it's possible to code a bypass
- if it's possible to tweak settings for the drivers to make it run  
smooth, to add to our support section.
- and of course keep Blender ATI support tested & under control

Developers here feeling competent for such testing, and/or developers  
with urgent need for a new 3D card can contact me. I'll ship them the  
card for free. :)
