XT when attached to an nVidia card means VERY cut down in performance.

XT when attached to an ATI card means VERY GOOD performance.

Confusing i know...

As reef and Chris said :)

I can't emphasise too strongly about two things:

a) Don't buy a 5900XT

b) Don't use Micro Direct, they are absolutely awful (see other threads on this Forum about their disgraceful trading practices).

Go get that ATI 9800 Pro that reef gave a link to, you'll be pleased with your decision.

Drat! i wish i came here before upgrading my video card!
i figured i would upgade my BFG Tech Geforce 5200 AGP for a PNY Geforce 5900xt seeing that it had a higher core clock and memory speed. indeed it is a little bit faster, but i was expecting more. looks like i'll upgrade to a BFG Tech Geforce 6800GT OC after all

I Never Bought a ATI card before... Anygood?
