Well it is a generation ahead. SM3 and everything on the X1800. Just wondering, how much did you get it for? Those X1900s price is very comparable to the X1800s but the performance is way better.
Not bad at all...

X1800 XTs are actually at a really great price now, and performance is almost as good as the X1900 XT.

The X1800 XT 256mb is especially interesting, under $300 and simmilar to a 7800 GTX/7900 GT performance.

Pssh, not true.
The x1800XT 256 isn't very good (I'm not even sure if it's as good as a 7800GTX). I've heard that the x1800XT 256 is just a little better than the x1800XL.

unless im missing something the x1800xt would be the same as a way oc'ed x1800xl. the memory is better on the xt256 than the xl but other than that. i briefly tested a x1800xt 256 and got 8800 on 3d05 and that was slightly underclocked. a very overclocked 7800gt only scored 8000 on 3d05. so for $290 the x1800xt256 shouldnt be too bad.

Is it worth it to use x1900 series in crossfire mode or 7900 GTX SLI performs better? I heard not much games supports crossfire...and not much people uses crossfire...But I wanna try out crossfire, because I've had NVIDIA cards b4 I wanna jump to ATI for the cause of experiences.

The SLI 7900GTX setup performs a good 5-10% better in most games (besides Splinter Cell). Also, SLI is more compatable than Crossfire. A lot of games dont support Crossfire, but support SLI.

If you read the FAQ on ATI's website, you'll find this answer....

10. What games work with CrossFire?

A. CrossFire works with all 3D applications. The user is able to run any game with multiple graphics cards cooperatively rendering the images. The end user is able to take advantage of the additional graphics hardware for all games, all the time.

Competitive solutions only work on a limited number of games that are profiled in the driver. New games, older games, lesser known games, and even some current popular titles are not supported, and the end user sees no benefit with this system when running these applications.

Not true, Crossfire is NOT supported on Oblivion, ask Bethesda.
