The X1900GT is better. If you want to get an X1900GT, you should get thisConnect3D Radeon X1900GT, which is $175 after a $75 MIR.

$175 for that kind of performance is unheard of; grab one before they're gone.

x1900gt if your gaming and if you want the media portions than the x1900 AIW. And if I'm not wrong, ~$260 is quite a bit for a x1900gt.

Ya I was just curious because the difference in pixel pipelines also, gt has 32 the aiw has 48.
