Check a few pages back, I posted like 5 benchmarks of the 256mb X1900XT.

On some of the benchmarks i looked at earlier, the max FPS difference between the 256 and 512MB versions of the x1900XT was only 9; in most of the other tests the FPS difference was about 3-5. I'd rather save the money by getting the 256.

Still seems a real toughie tho, choosing between the GTO and 19XT.

IMO..The extra 256mb doesnt do much; the x1900xt 256mb still performs well at high resolution.

Overclocking the 7900GTO to a GTX is a hit or miss thing. Either you're very lucky with the good memory to overclock or most likely not. Some might get there, but the GPU could be unstable...

I'd say X1900XT only if you plan on watercooling. I just cracked 702Mhz core on my X1900GT, but it already cracked 6k points in 3DMark06 when it was at 648Mhz.

It's good that you can change voltages using software on the X1900 so you don't have to risk hard-modding it.

Nah, no need to be extreme and water cool; I got a Zalman VF900(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118001) and it idles at 44c and loads at 55c average. I would try to overclock more, but i dont wanna push too hard on my GPU

Yeah, i heard some people were able to get their memory up to GTX speeds, and other people had artifacting at stock (the old 7900 problem). Apparently, the 7900GTOs are the GTXs that had the undervolted RAM problem, so they just lowered the RAM's clock speed and voltage to get them stable.
