Exclamation x800 decisions!

Ok thursday I got my sapphire x800gto agp and that night I unlocked the card's bios to a x800xl and oc'ed to 430/1060. I looked in everest and it said x800xl but also said the memory bandwith was lower by 3gbs per second. So I got my friend to modify my old x800 gto bios so it gets the 16 pipes. It seems fine now but which should I use: x800gto bios with 16 pipes or x800xl bios with 16pipes (i dont even know difference between em.)

well if they have the same pipes, same clock speeds, then i dont think it matters. did you say they showed different memory bandwidths? i would go with the higher one....
