In celebration of its record shipments of 700,000 units in September, ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), a worldwide leader in high-performance graphics solutions, today released a limited edition for the ASUS RADEON 9800XT graphics card. As well as all the cutting-edge features, powerful performance, bundled games and accessories in the original package, this collector's item also comes in a stylish black case and bundles a USB 2.0-based 7-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, 3.3V SM, MD, Type I/II CF, MS, MS Pro) and leather CD holder. ASUS will offer only 2,000 units of this limited edition so take advantage of this great opportunity.

The ASUS RADEON 9800XT, the result of ASUS' new partnership with ATI Technologies Inc., is created to meet demands from users who want the performance and visual realism of the latest ATI RADEON 9800XP Visual Processing Unit (VPU).
