X1900XTX or X1800XT

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I was trying to decide which one to get. Should I spend the extra 200 and get the X1900XTX, or save that 200 and get the X1800XT? I was checking out benchmarks on oblivion and FEAR, and the X1800XT didn't perform much less than the X1900XTX. Right now I have an X800XL.

if the 1800 didnt perform much less, then get it and OC.
Get the 1900XTX for bragging rights lol
benchmarks are just numbers. what matters is how it feels. like my 7800GT feels fast and no lag even tough its like 60 fps. *example

Save the $200 and get the X1800XT.

I was going to buy a 7800GTX for $300 yesterday but I backed out at the last minute, I play F.E.A.R on all its glory at 1024x768 and would like to play it at 16x12 but it's not worth shelling out $300 just for that.

Though I had other reasons as well not to get the 7800 GTX for $300.

Spend that $200 somewhere else and get the X1800XT, I don't think the difference will be a night and day one.

I posted up my system specs in my sig. I was wondering if I actually have the power to accomodate these high-end cards.
