More about : vcard sales ahh TheGreatGrapeApe a b U Graphics card February 17, 2006 5:57:41 AM The X1900XT would be the better choice for the money. Why the Connect3D XTX but not XT? http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=17529&vpn=3056&manufacture=Connect3D 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. chuckshissle February 17, 2006 6:09:05 AM I'd pick the X1900XTX as well, better then the 7800GTX 256 and a lot cheaper than the 7800GTX 512.
