Well i mean the only diference would be memory and price wise so the best idea would be a 8800GTS 320MB for 300$ not the HD 2900XT for 100$ more
Since I play CRPGs that benefit from extra memory for textures (Oblivion for example), I really wanted to get that card in September. If it's discontinued, I'll just wait until the next generation comes out and see how performance is there.
After all, I play Oblivion on my P4 because the X1650 Pro AGP has 512 megs of DDR2, not on my dual core with the 7600GS that only has 256. Mods are the reason and I was looking forward to a card with enough memory to handle all the textures.The extra memory has nothing to do with the X1650 Pro running Oblivion better than the 7600GS.
