Aright, XT. Which XT to get, then? ^.^

Seriously though, any reviews saying anything? I can't see any difference, they all seriously the same?
All the cards are currently made by ATI and are distributed by the partners. Therefore, buying one brand over another won't get you any different card. The only difference could be what is bundled with the cards.

Just a note, the psu recommended by ATI for both the XT and the XTX is a 450W psu with 30A on the 12v rail.

I have a 420W. In the grand scheme of computer-part buying, it will 'have to do'.

...and in the grand scheme of computer dying, it will 'probably kill something expensive'

^ agreed, but seriously the XT is NO faster than the XTX because its core is only 25MHz faster, memory clocks really don't have that much of an impact on gaming performance, that extra 100MHz will not net you any extra FPS really, plus the fact that they are both the same chips so they should overclock to the same theoretical limit, within the gray area depending on if you get lucky and get a particularly good one or get unlucky and get a dud. I'd get the Sapphire X1900XT because from what I remember it was the cheapest on newegg and Sapphire is a good company IMO, H.I.S. is also very good.

Eh, I went for Connect3d in the end, because it was cheaper. I didn't really want to pay a premium price for exactly the same card. Also, my PSU is pretty solid, I should think. It's Tagan, so at least it's not Q-Tec.
