    ATI X800XL vs X800XT PE vs X850XT. Which one?

    X800XL is clocked at 400/490. X850XT is clocked at 520/560. X800XL runs cooler and consumes less power but X850XT uses newer and better GPU cooler. I can get the X850XT for just $115 more. $115 more for an additional 120mhz/70mhz in core/memory clock doesn't seem too bad (way more justified then paying $57.50 more to go from XT to XT PE), but benchmarks only show 5-10% gain.

    Both cards will benefit me as I play mostly HL2, but I also get my hands on the latest SP games. The next-gen video cards will all be CrossFire and I doubt I'll be getting dual video cards. Plus, I'm going 64-bit within 1-2 years. The question is, which card will be better in the long run?

    Also another very important question, is the X800XT PE == X850XT??? It seems like they both have 16 pipelines and run at 520/560?

    I say it depends on how much you want to spend.
    The X800 XL has 16 pipes. Just slower core/mem clock.
    Pretty happy with my deal.
