What ATI Option Should I go With...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I can't decide...
What should I do? Wait for the x1900 XT 256, and buy a nice Lian case, just get an x1800 XT now, with a Lian, and save the rest of the money, or just go all out and buy an x1900XT 512 before the 256 comes out?

Id personally get the 1800xt if it were my decision. The 1900xt is a little over 100$ more, so if you have the cash..might as well.

512mb will come in handy for certain games like cod2 and q4, so if it comes down to it id get the 1800xt 512 over the 1900xt 256. Its only a little faster, plus you know you are going to overclock either card. And a 1800xt OC'd is up there with a 1900.

The 1800xt's are dropping in price, so...its a pretty good snag now, especially a refurb'd one.

Yeah, I was thinking about getting an x1800XT or CF refurb on newegg, and maybe a Lian PC 65B Plus Lian PC 1000B (if I can afford it).
It seems like the x1900XT owns the x1800XT in benchmarks though, it scores quite a bit higher than it in benchmarks. How far do you think I could OC it with my Maze4 and some good RAMsinks?
