More about which vcard sales
  1. 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.
  2. I'd pick the X1900XTX as well, better then the 7800GTX 256 and a lot cheaper than the 7800GTX 512. :D
  3. You're suggesting the $100 more for the XTX?

    I'd save the extra coin and just get the XT.
  4. the CONNECT3D one is not "g"DDR3 and it is PCI E"16"

    worse?

    ^2nd more expensive by about 30$


    hmmm! little details...!?
  5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GDDR3

    going by what these seems to say, GDDR3 would allow me to OC better... i think
  6. im very aware that DDR and GDDR is memory, my question is, big enough difference to pay an extra 20 or so dollars?
  7. GDDR3 = DDR3
  8. Recent article on anandtech comparing some 1900s:
