True but for a Computer nOOb, who said <i><font color=purple>"If it helps I don't plan on doing anything like overclocking or whatever." </i></font color=purple>, I'd say the guaranteed stock speed is a benefit, the VPU (and mem?) temp monitor and the chance of ok memory is good. And the speed only matters for an OC.
Believe me I love my R9600Pro and OC'd it will outperform just about any R9600XT at stock speed, but it's still a risk, even in a BBA R9600P which is usually a good bet at OC'ing. But the parameters as stated I'd say the XT all the way.
