The X1900XT would be the better choice for the money.

Why the Connect3D XTX but not XT?

For price/performance for the GF7 series it's the GF7800GT which can be had for less than $400CAD.

The major question is the games you play and the resolution/settings you prefer.

I'd say the XT has a longer lifespan ahead of it, but the GT (not GTX) has great value going for it for now.

The AIW X1900 is also a nice consideration.

I'd pick the X1900XTX as well, better then the 7800GTX 256 and a lot cheaper than the 7800GTX 512. :D

You're suggesting the $100 more for the XTX?

I'd save the extra coin and just get the XT.

im very aware that DDR and GDDR is memory, my question is, big enough difference to pay an extra 20 or so dollars?
